Jools Holland

In a few months, "one of the most family-friendly festivals around" in the Larmer Tree Festival, will celebrate the milestone of twenty years on the summer fest map!

Taking place at the Larmer Tree Gardens near Tollard Royal on the Wiltshire-Dorset border in England, the five-day festival will run from Wednesday 14th July to Sunday 18th July, offering a wide selection of kids-n'-teens-tailored creative workshops and activities, holistic therapy sessions and entertainment of all kinds. Focusing on the music program, take note that some mighty acts have already confirmed their participation, and so kicking-off festivities on the Wednesday will be Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, joined by supreme vocalist Alison Moyet. Thursday will be headlined by grandiose thus legendary Robert Cray Band while his peers (in stature) Toots and the Maytals will take care of Friday's peak entertainment. The likes of new kid on the strum, James Yuill, The Heavy, Otis Gibbs, F-Fever, Swarathma, Mountain Hobos, With Love From Humans! and the Blur-championed Hypnotic Brass Ensemble (all the way from Chicago) and others, will complete this promising line-up.

Tickets for all five days cost just £184.00 for adults, £152.00 for 11-17 year olds and £124.00 for 5-10 year olds, with free entrance for under-5s.

Various ticketing options are available for those wishing to attend selected days of the festival - all on sale now.
