WELCOME TO THE 40th GRASSINGTON FESTIVAL

MUSIC & ARTS

NOW THAT’S HOW YOU START A WEEK!

Oh my goodness what an incredibly talented group The Jervaulx Singers are. If you get a chance to see them somewhere then go!

Next up we have the amazing Mick Doran. Head percussionist with English National Opera, Mick will be giving us a behind-the-scenes peek at life in a classical orchestra. Apparently, there is a lot that goes on that no one ever realises! Well… not till now anyway.
The reviews at the end of this short promo video tell you all you need to know!

We have just five days of the festival left but we still have some great performers for you to see including the fabulous  Clare Teal and  a theatrical treat from Gerard Logan performing his critically acclaimed play about Oscar Wilde.

As we approach the end of our 40th festival we round off the week with a celebration of music guranteed to please the most hardend festival goer.  Cable Street Collective will be starting off our finale weekend setting us up to party, party, party till we can dance no more. Well, not until Saturday anyway when we end this year’s offerings with Swedish rock goddesses Baskery,followed by
the legend that is Doctor and The Medics.

Notice of changes to our free events

We are hearing daily that on a local and national level small independent and charitable festivals are struggling for support to get going again after the pandemic and sadly this also includes us. As a result of not being able to get enough volunteers to help marshal our free events that take place in the village square, we have had to cancel both our free entertainment Saturdays and the Festival Parade. We do however still have a number of free events on offer including free walks, films and workshops that people can come along to. Details can be found on the website.
