We’re thrilled to introduce another dimension to #Lakefest2017: The Pen and Parchment, a new tent dedicated to laughs, literature and language.

As you know, we’re dedicated to offering you, our special guests, something alternative from previous years and this year we decided to combine our love of music with literature, poetry and plenty of laughter.

Over the weekend there will a variety of events in and outside of the tent and we will even have a bar at the back (to ensure you don’t get thirsty, of course!) 😉

We won’t spoil all of the surprises just yet, but rest assured, we have a super line-up awaiting you.

Friday: Comedy
Saturday: Performance Poetry
Sunday: A Sprinkle of Everything

Our morning sessions will be focused on our little Lakefesters and will include art and theatre workshops. The afternoon sessions will be an opportunity for you to watch our incredible non-musical acts; Q&A sessions with Wilko Johnson, BMX legend Stephen Murray, plus many more!
