So Glastonbury’s been and gone and you’re thinking: Was that the Summer? What now?

Last Call for Boarding

And… it’s already Friday, July 8th – which means there are only 7 days to this year’s Stainsby Festival. The first for three long years. Only 7 days to pack your festival kit, buy those extras you’ve forgotten about over the last three years, organise your travel and make sure your friends haven’t forgotten to book their tickets! Did we say it’s been three years? Feels like a lifetime. So don’t get caught out cos here it comes, right now there’s great music from the likes of Steve Tilston, Bonfire Radicals, Plumhall, Praying for the Rain, last minute addition Enda Kenny and… ooh!…loads more. Just check this lot out!
