It's beginning to look a lot like Glastonbury!

Published in Blog

Ok, we’re not Glastonbury and we never will be. And we’ve certainly got some hugely distinct differences, such as our lack of miniature humans*. In fact, make that humans in general (given our significantly smaller capacity and the fact that we could fit our Beal Farm site into the Glasto perimeter about 100 times over).

But with the gates of the Glasto now open once again, I thought I'd take the opportunity to highlight a few of our commonalities with the mother of all UK festivals. After all, Glasto did light the spark that ignited a fire fuelled with inspiration, which led Lindisfarne Festival to where it is today...

We're Getting Punch Drunk!

A damn good giggle is great for the soul and since day one we've tried to ensure there is laughter in abundance at Lindisfarne Festival.

From musical comedy to some sensational stand-up, we've had some belly-aching performances at the festival in 2015 & 2016. But as with every aspect of this festival - we want to keep on taking things up a notch year after year and the comedy element is no exception.

It therefore gives us great pleasure to be bringing on board Northumberland's very own comedy powerhouse Punch Drunk Comedy! Punch Drunk will be taking over our comedy stage in 2017 to bring the feel-good force of laughter they've become renowed for in the North East over the last 8 years.
