Holbefest 2018 - Live Music and Family Entertainment
The 9th of June sees the return of HOLBEFEST, a lively music festival and community fun day held at Flete Park near Holbeton, (just off the A379 between Modbury and Yealmpton). Now in it's fourth year the 2018 festival promises to be bigger and better than ever. We have a cracking line up of top notch Plymouth bands including C-Force, Three-Company and Tamar. We also have great solo artists with the likes of Steve Jenner and Sarah Bone, plus a line up of local and aspiring musicians. You can see the full artist line up here.
As well live music there's plenty of family entertainment on offer including Elfic the Juggler, Covent Garden's juggler of the year, who will be running circus skills workshops, the Legendary Assault Course and Gladiator Duelling arena. 2018 also sees the return of local samba band Crooked Temp, the South Hams Singers plus a plethora of stalls and games to keep young ones amused from noon to dusk.
5k Fun run
New for 2018 is the Holbefest 5km Trail Race and family fun run, organised by Holbeton Harriers. For those of you who wish to burn off a few calories on the day the 5KM Trail Run starts a 2:00pm and routes itself through the beautiful grounds of the Flete Estate. There is also a family fun in optional fancy dress later in the day if you don't fancy the full 5K.
Great food and fine ales
This year we pleased to announce that the MildMay Colours have stepped in and volunteered to do the food catering, so get ready to indulge in a range of gourmet BBQ and vegetarian delights with a South African twist. In need of a drink after all this excitement? Thanks to the Dartmoor Union there will be a licensed bar with a fine selection of real ales, larger, wines and soft drinks to keep everyone refreshed.
Holbefest 2018 promises to be a cracking day of music and family fun - book your tickets NOW as numbers are limited.
