- Ireby Festival
Cumbrian family folk-roots festival.
"Ireby is a small farming village on the northwest edge of the Lake District. It has developed a growing reputation nationwide as Cumbria's most intimate of festivals offering a potpourri mix of music genres ranging from folk to blues and bluegrass to contemporary. Ireby festival has something for all music lovers. With the main stage venue restricted to just 500 weekenders, and additional venues including St James church the village hall, Ireby 12th century chancel and the Lion pub, the festival experience is very much a close up and personal affair for those lucky enough to get hold of tickets."
