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 have been busy working away to secure a cracking line up of headline acts to get you grooving and dancing from 6:00 pm, complemented by a great selection of solo artists and local bands who will be keeping you entertained from 12:00 noon. The headline acts are detailed on our Music and Entertain page where we will also be making further announcements on the supporting acts in the coming weeks.

Family fun

As well as live music there's plenty of free family entertainment on offer at the event. 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.  We'll also have a storyteller, morris dancers and capoeira troop providing workshops and entertainment at various times in the afternoon.  The legendary Assault Course will be back once more,  complemented by a selection of inflatables, new physical challenges and activities, plus a plethora of stalls and games to keep everyone amused from noon to dusk. Wherever possible we are making these available free of charge.

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.
