Bearded Theory returns

By | Published on Friday 20 February 2009

The Bearded Theory Music Festival has announced that it’s returning for a second year. The event, runner up in the Best New Festival category at the UK Festival Awards, will take place from 15-17 May at Bradley Nook Farm near Ashbourne, Derbyshire.

Organisers will be hiring homeless members of the community as stewards, and all profits will be donated to Shelter and Padley Day Centre. The festival is also easy on the budget, with adult tickets for the three day event costing £45.

This year’s line up will include the likes of The Saw Doctors and Neville Staples, as well as a host of local musicians and comedians.

The festival will have five stages and is expanding its children’s area, which will offer activities such as skiffle workshops, carnivals, and scavenger hunts as well as a children’s open mic tent. Children’s tickets are £5 for under fives and £15 for under sixteens.
