Welcome to CRANFEST 2021, which takes place on the evening of FRIDAY 3 SEPTEMBER and all day on SATURDAY 4 SEPTEMBER.
In a change to our scheduled programme, we regret to advise that our two headline acts, Oysterband on the Friday and Curved Air on the Saturday, will not now be performing. With the current uncertainty over covid infection rates and the increase in cases among the younger populace, and bearing in mind the architecture of St Dunstan’s Church, particularly the close proximity of the rows of pews, we felt it would be prudent to defer these shows. They will definitely be rescheduled though, the new dates will be announced as soon as possible, and current tickets will be valid for the rescheduled dates.
As the same restrictions do not apply to the other venues we are using, the rest of the festival will be going full steam ahead. There will be an amazing array of different artists playing throughout plus local school bands and the whole thing is COMPLETELY FREE!
The music will be spread across six venues, and will cover a variety of musical genres, with something to suit everyone! Plus there will be music workshops and food & drink available throughout the day at a variety of outlets. We look forward to welcoming you, your friends and family to the festival, it's sure to be a great day out for all! Here's what you have to look forward to.....
