Ceddesfeld Hall.

Ceddesfeld Hall

 This former rectory is now run as a community association and a number of good size rooms are available spread over two floors. The "Tribute to Bert Draycott and Martin Nesbitt" will be held at this venue, along with Singarounds, Music Sessions and Workshops.  Ceddesfeld has an excellent licensed bar. At present access to the upper floor is by stairs only, however plans have recently been passed to install a lift and this may be installed by the Festival weekend.


St Edmunds Church

This venue normally hosts a concert during the Festival weekend. The artists chosen for this event tend to appeal to those who enjoy a more gentle musical experience. In previous years packed houses have been entertained by a wide variety of performers including a fishermans choir, gospel choir, brass band, classical guitar and Northumbrian pipes.
