Holbefest 2019 - Live Music and Family Entertainment
22nd of June sees the return of HOLBEFEST, a lively music festival and community fun day held at Flete Park near Holbeton. Building on the successes of 2018 and now in it's fifth year, HF19 promises to be bigger and better than ever. We're busy working away on securing a cracking line up of headline acts to get you grooving and dancing from 6:00pm, but we're also planning a great selection of solo artists and local bands who will be keeping you amused through out the day from 12:00 noon. The full line up of acts will be announced on the 18th April, when we also be announcing a great new aspect to the evenings entertainment, so put a note in your diary to check out the website.
As well live music there's plenty of family entertainment on offer. Elfic the Juggler, Covent Garden's juggler of the year, will be returning in 2019 and will be running his high appreciated circus skills workshops through the afternoon. We'll also have the legendary Assault Course, inflatables, new challenges and activities, plus a plethora of stalls and games to keep young ones amused from noon to dusk. More on this as we get closer to the day.
10k Trail run and family fun run
Back due to popular demand, and thanks to the Holbeton Harriers, HF19 sees the length of the trail increase to 10Km with the run route snaking though the beautiful grounds of the Flete Estate. Don't fancy a full 10KM? Well once again there will be the opportunity to chase after crabman (or a close relative) in the 1M family fun run.
Great food and fine ales
Fine food can make an afternoon, so get ready to indulge in a range of gourmet BBQ, quality dishes and vegetarian delights. In need of a drink after all this excitement? HF19 features a licensed bar with a fine selection of real ales, larger, wines and soft drinks to keep everyone refreshed. There even a pimps tent!.
