New to Towersey - Ninebarrow
Dorset-based acoustic duo Ninebarrow are on the up. Since picking up Larmer Tree’s Breakthrough Music Awards 2013, Jon Whitley and Jay LaBouchardiere’s home-produced debut album, While The Blackthorn Burns, has been crowned FATEA Debut Album of the Year 2014, while their contribution to The Armistace Pals cover of Pete Seeger’s Where Have All The Flowers Gone? (along with such luminaries as Merry Hell, Christine Collister, Dave Swarbrick, Lucy Ward, Peggy and Pete Seeger) picked up FATEA’s Single of the Year 2014. Combing breathtaking vocal harmonies and strong melodies with original songs inspired by the landscape and history of the British Isles, they make their Towersey Festival debut on Sunday 30 August 2015.

In tune with recycling
Towersey Festival celebrated its 50th anniversary in August 2014, as thousands of festival goers enjoyed the sounds of The Bootleg Beatles, Seth Lakeman and Richard Thompson, plus many more artists.
Every year the Festival sees campers, glampers and day trippers arrive, mixing tents – large and small – with children’s play areas, music stages and catering facilities.
For us, the challenge of managing waste disposal and recycling is of paramount importance, and in 2014 we were delighted to achieve our target of recycling or recovering 80% of waste from the event. [read more]
After our triumphant 50th anniversary, we've ensured that the very best of Towersey has continued as we move to our new home, just a mile up the road.
All your Towsersey Festival favourites are still here, including Sing-A-Rounds, Lantern Making and the Lantern Parade, Morris Dancing, Sessions at The Three Horseshoes, concerts with (and without) chairs, and much more.
And, thanks to the much valued input of hundreds of Towersey regulars at 2014's festival, we've also improved many of your festival favourites! [read more]
