Bearded Theory`s Spring Gathering

Bank Holiday weekend May 26th -29th, 2016

Bearded Theory is a multi-award winning creative and performing arts festival set in the beautiful grounds of Catton Hall in the heart of the National Forest. The festival borders 3 counties of West Midlands, South Derbyshire and Staffordshire and only 2 hours away for 50% of the UKs population. The festival boasts 5 music stages, theatre, comedy, a huge Children’s Village which is free to use by families, award winning bars operated by Thornbridge Brewery, free hot showers, a festival school operating on Friday enabling children to be taken out of education without being fined, a stunning Woodland Stage set in a Woodland clearing, Healing Area and has National Coach Travel from major cities in the UK. We are one of the very few festivals that allow you to bring your own drink into our arenas.

In 2014 we won “Promoter of the Year” award at the UK Festival Awards in London and Festival Kidz “Silver Award”. In 2013, after being shortlisted for many years, we finally won “Best Small Festival” at the UK Festival Awards and a Festival Kidz “Gold Award”. In 2011 we won the “UKs Best Independent Festival” at the AIM Music Awards. Over the years we have also been shortlisted for many awards including Best Family Festival, Best Grassroots, and Best Toilets.

The festival has always been audience led and our programming is operated the same now as when we started 9 years ago. We book acts off the back of your recommendations, improved our infrastructure in line with feedback and sourced the vendors and bars off the back of the suggestions of people that attend.
