Once again we welcome back the amazing ‘Full Circle’ family to host and manage our acoustic stage. This space is one step removed from the main festival, tucked away at the top of the field, with beautiful views over the Wiltshire hills. To be honest, you could just spend the whole festival here. It’s many peoples favourite spot. This year we have a full programme of incredible artists from Friday afternoon right the way through to Sunday afternoon. This space is generally a bit quieter and more reflective than the rest of the festival. Here are some highlights for you to make a note of:  

Brooke Sharkey (Friday, 9pm)

It’s a welcome return to the enchanting Brooke Sharkey. One of our absolute favourite performers, have a listen for yourself. She is performing on Friday night at 9pm.  

Three Acres and a Cow (Saturday, 3pm)

Something a little bit different and very special. Three Acres and a Cow connects the Norman Conquest and Peasants’ Revolt with fracking, our housing crisis and Brexit via the Enclosures and Industrial Revolution, the show draws a compelling narrative through the people’s history of England. Part TED talk, part folk club sing-a-long, come and share these tales as they have been shared for generations.

ICHI (Saturday, 8.30pm)

“Hilarious, bonkers and brilliant” – Lauren Laverne

Bristol based Japanese experimental singer-songwriter, instrument maker and performance artist. ICHI brings that DIY ethos to his one man shows literally, his instruments are made from a smorgasbord of everyday objects and children’s toys.

Whisky Moon face (Saturday, 10.30pm)

Again, I don’t have words to describe the magic of this band. Profound, timeless, captivating… would be a few to try? What do you think?

The Song Within (Saturday and Sunday, 1200-1300)

A chance for you to get involved. Artist and teacher Ania Hardy will be encouraging everyone to have a go each morning at the festival. Singing is a pleasure that everyone can learn to enjoy.

All the best, Henry and the C&B team
