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 its fifth year, HF19 promises to be an extravaganza of live music and family entertainment. We're busy working away on securing a cracking line up of headline acts to get you grooving and dancing from 6:00 pm, but we're also planning a great selection of solo artists and local bands who will be keeping you entertained from 12:00 noon. The full line up of acts will be announced on the 29th March, when we are also announcing a great new aspect to the evening's entertainment, but we will leaking announcements as they happen.

Family fun

As well as 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 highly appreciated circus skills workshops throughout the afternoon. We'll also have the legendary Assault Course, inflatables, new challenges and activities, plus a plethora of stalls and games to keep everyone 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 route snaking through 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, lager, wines and soft drinks to keep everyone refreshed. There's even a Pimms tent!

Holbefest 2019 promises to be a cracking day of music and family fun - Advance ticket sales start on the 29th of March with an early bird discount. Purchase early as ticket numbers are limited.
