Whatstandwell Festival 2020 is Cancelled

Really sad to have to announce that Whatstandwell Festival 2020 will not take place this year.

The decision hasn’t been taken lightly, but its unavoidable given the current coronavirus crisis.

The health of everyone involved in the festival and wider community is our priority and we can not confidently plan and deliver the festival this June.

We send our best wishes to everyone who was planning to attend, perform and help out at Whatstandwell Festival and are really sorry that we wont see you this mid summer at Hankin Farm.

Stay safe and we hope to see you in 2021.


Here is short video of just a few highlights of 2019

Tickets and Ts & Cs

Preparations have now started for Whatstandwell Festival 2020. We have decided that this year we may try to go bigger than our normal 500 max. capacity. This will be investigated and results posted when we know the outcome. However, as always, we do want to try and make it even better.  So we are planning a more impressive circus for the Friday night, followed by some live music and a fancy dress theme for the weekend.

We also want to provide the same great quality and variety food and beverages.

We will have some great bands booked for Saturday night and we are in the process of sorting out Saturday afternoon’s entertainment and working out what else we can bring you.

So we will be making some more announcements soon.

This year we are proposing a Ticket price which covers Festival entry for Friday Night and all day Saturday. (That is no day tickets, only weekend). This will most likely be £20 for adults, £10 for accompanied under 18s and free for under 12s.  We are doing this because we need to simplify our ticket structure to just three types, ensure we can attract some quality acts and also because over 80% of the people who come, do so for the weekend.

Please note, If you would like to camp over there is an addition cost payable to Hankin Farm, but they are very reasonably priced https://www.facebook.com/Hankinfarmcampsite/
