The Marquees

On a sunny day Bickerstock is an idyllic spot, but we can’t always rely on the sunshine so our large marquees are worth their weight in gold in case of inclement weather, and they also provide good shade should we be lucky enough to need it! One marquee houses ‘The Local’ stage at one end, a bar, refreshments and tables and chairs too. The other houses the "Garden Stage" where there is plenty of room for dancing come rain, hail or shine.

The Music

There will be 2 stages, one main stage outside ‘The Garden Stage’, and a more intimate space for the acoustic stage in main marquee ‘The Local’ offering a wide variety of all styles of music to suit all tastes throughout the weekend. Bands, artists and musicians are local and all play for free, as all our proceeds go to charity. So go on, give them an extra cheer.

The Bar
Licensed refreshments are available from the bar, from wines to locally brewed ales; there’s something to suit everyone’s tastes. Come along and see the famous Piano Bar
Trinity Tea Shop
Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, juices,lots of homemade cakes and other goodies are available from Gladys’ fab tea stand. Come and put your feet up, have a natter and a cuppa, and be entertained by the bands. All proceeds from this stall go to Holy Trinity Church, Bickerstaffe.
Camping
There is camping on the field, but only by pre-booking through the website. Please see the Applications Page.
Stalls
For the shopaholics and browsers amongst you, there is a selection of stalls to enhance your Music Festival experience, including jewellery, wood crafts, soaps, vintage fabrics, and other crafts.
Barbeque
The Barbecue is run by Barrow Nook Community Barbecuers, long standing Bickerstaffe residents who slave over hot coals – literally – to provide you with delicious burgers, hot dogs and bacon butties, all made from high quality locally sourced meat.
Food
There will be tea and cakes available from the Trinity Tea Shop; a range of freshly made sandwiches and jacket potatoes with your choice of fillings; and  a hot dish of the day with a veggie option from the cafe; as well as the top quality burger and hot dog range from the barbecue.
Creative Workshops
On both Saturday and Sunday afternoon, adults and children alike can come along and paint, draw, model clay, collage and get crafty to their hearts’ content.
Practicalities
We have flushing toilets, and disabled facilities. Stewards, volunteers, and First Aiders will be on hand throughout the Festival.
Parking
This will be on the road-side; we are sorry we do not have on-site car-parking facilities, and this is something we are always seeking to improve. There are some disabled parking spaces available – see gate staff for help.
Waste Recycling
Please help us to keep Bickerstock clean and safe for everyone by not bringing glass onto the field and using the bins provided.
