On Friday 22nd July from 2pm we are holding a music festival at Five Lanes Farm that celebrates the very best of British tribute bands. Top of the bill are the Illegal Eagles, the ultimate tribute band to the Eagles, one of the most successful musical acts of the 1970s.
Add to this Abba, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Madness, Rod Stewart and the Stone Roses and “the Fest” covers musical tastes from the early 60’s right through to the 90’s. FREE CAR PARKING AVAILABLE
