In 2012 its will all be happening from our new venue:
‘Marfields’ Leyburn Road, Masham HG4 4ER.
This new site is altogether more accessible in every possible way.. From the relative ease of finding us, to it being an easier terrain for physical accessibility whether by wheelchair, pushchair or foot. Its also a more accessible site to cope with heavy production vehicles, So, whilst we will miss our dear Lime Tree farm , the new venue is clearly more festival fit! It is also walking distance from the small market town of Masham.
Part of the beautiful Nidderdale landscape, grazing animals use the Marfield site and therefore our ‘Leave only Footprints’ message is just as important here as it was at Lime Tree farm. We will, as always, be pushing this message throughout the coming months and letting you know what plans are afoot to ensure the land is cared for throughout the festival weekend.
