There’s also on-site festival camping with showers.
One of the things we think many of you would be interested in is the Songwriting Competition taking place on the Festival Edge (that’s the fringe to you and me).
Qualifying heats take place at the OC Club on Friday and Saturday, with the final on Sunday.
Part of the winner’s prize will be an offer to perform the winning song on stage during the final festival concert on Sunday evening.
If you’re interested in taking part you should contact Maurice Pursell on email@example.com or by phone on 07812-026369
