There's a jam-packed programme to follow on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd July with performances from Artists include Sonia Leigh, Albert Lee, Helen & the Neighbourhood Dogs, The Danberrys and Hank Wangford. 

A range of workshops are also being held across the weekend, including 'Bluegrass' with the Hot Rock Pilgrims, 'Banjo' with Stompin Dave Allen and 'Chasing Summer'; a music and art workshop for children with Tammy Rochelle and Joseph Bamber. 

Local vendors will be on hand to provide some tasty offerings which are bound to tickle everyone’s taste buds… pizza, Paella and pasta, Mexican chilli, and for those with a sweet tooth the award-winning ice-creams, crepes and cupcakes will go down a treat!

The wonderful thing about The Maverick Festival is that it’s designed for all the family to enjoy in a clean, civilised environment which is family and pet-friendly and what’s more because ticket prices are so reasonable and kids under 10 are free it’s an affordable fun weekend for all to enjoy!
