This year’s Blue Moon Festival will be on the 20th of July and we’re super mega excited. As last year all proceeds will go to the YHA’s charitable scheme Breaks, but this year we’re doing it different…This year it’s going to be FREEEEE.
Starting at 11am for some zumba with Matt and Mr Sam Chick, music starts at midday till 11pm. That’s 12 hours of music and mayhem.
We have the amazing Echo Town headlining and gypsy swing band The Rin Tins return after last year’s fantastic performance. We have some psychedelic rock with Hot Teeth, boogie-woogie acoustic style with Julian Gaskell and his Ragged Trousered Philanthropists, the awesome guitarist John Fairhurst with his combination of Muddy Water blues and Indian inspired tunes, splendiferous maestro Arthur Cunnington, the return of Tamasha, the wonderful ceilidh band Catclews (bring your dancing shoes) and more acts to be announced.
Sperry Tents have again kindly donated us a beautiful huge marquee for the music, stalls and pop-up bar as well as a children’s tent for crafts and activities.
We will be serving cakes and drinks from our cafe/bar as well as offering a yummy BBQ and possibly a hog roast.
The hostel sits on the cliffs overlooking our beautiful bay; we must have one of the most stunning music venue locations in the country. Don’t miss out on this very special event and support our cause,
Our Breaks Programmes aim to reach young people and families with the most challenging lives and provide them with life changing experiences.
We understand the power of travel and adventure to transform a child’s view of the world and their place in it, to provide respite and improve children’s health, education and well being. We believe all young people should have the chance to have big adventures, make new friends, try new things and learn vital life skills. We want every child to know what it is like to paddle in the sea for the first time, to see the city skyline at night and to feel the sand between their toes.
Today, young people face many challenges. Financial hardship, homelessness, disability, long-term illness, bereavement, caring for a parent and other circumstances all limit children’s opportunities to explore the world and their place in it. We are here to reach, and create new opportunities for those in the greatest need.
