As the dust settles on another edition of Glastonbury, our very own outdoor music extravaganza has been confirmed for later this month, with tickets selling fast.

Funk in the Forest will be held for the first time from July 26-29 at Brithdir Hall, near Berriew, and features 54 acts over three days on three stages with “live shows, arts, events, camping, great food, DJs, and plenty of good times” all promised by the organisers.

The event is the brainchild of young up-and-coming fashion design student, Clement Rye, who was born and raised at Brithdir Hall.

Funk in the Forest will be held in the grounds, park and woodlands around the historic 16th century mansion, once the centre of a 1,000-acre estate and home to Clement’s family since before the first world war.

“The forest stage is situated beside a stream in a valley bottom among ancient pines that tower over banks of luscious ferns, and has been created for the sole purpose of holding the grooviest forest party this summer!” said Clement.

“It will feature a range of DJs and bands that will appeal to everyone's tastes. Alongside the forest stage we have our striped marquee with our second stage primarily hosting bands, surrounded by stalls full of exotic merchandise.

“This is set on an elevated site with far reaching views south over the Severn Valley below towards Montgomery Castle and the hills above Ludlow.

“Our third stage is in our main food marquee, hosting acoustic artists and bands, for those who don’t want to miss the music whilst chilling out and grabbing a bite to eat.

In addition to the big food marquee there will also be a wood fired pizza station, a milk float cocktail bar, a converted circus stand-turned-bar and many other boutique stalls to experience.

Alongside the music is an exhibition of art installations created especially for the festival by local artists including the Anglo-Australian artist Julia Cottrell- Dormer. 

Tickets start at £30 and include free camping and car parking with mobile homes also welcome.
