TAKING place on August Bank Holiday Monday, Grimsthorpe Festival 2011 is set to be one of the region’s most action packed events with over 50 live performances by musicians from all over the world including Brazil and USA, as well as many national and local bands.
Founder and organiser Daniel Sumpton had the idea for Grimsthorpe Festival after visiting some of the UK’s biggest music festivals and seeing how much fun people have.
He said: “Grimsthorpe Festival is a celebration of the very best in music, the arts and culture. It is a place where we can all come together, have a picnic and listen to some fantastic music”.
Grimsthorpe Festival 2011 will be made up of 4 stages including the main stage with rock and indie bands playing to the crowds, as well as the folk stage, acoustic stage and world stage which will showcase music from around the world.
As well as the four stages playing live music throughout the event, there will be a show arena, side shows and displays to entertain the crowds with one of the regions best Classic Car Shows displaying over a hundred and fifty vintage vehicles.
The festival will be topped off by a visit from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and will include a fly past by a Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane.
