Festival going in style with Champagne and Orange Juice Breakfast

Date of Stay: July 25th to 27th: Not often do we get to go to a music festival simply to enjoy the event as opposed to finding myself helping Annie lug boxes about for Butterfingers. So, what a pleasure this weekend was!
If I said it was near Barnsley you would have completely the wrong idea about the view and the countryside. But you would be wrong. The Underneath the Stars festival was adjacent to Cannon Hill Farm and we were parked on a field just a short walk from the event and it is a beautiful countryside location.
This festival was well organised, with a capital ‘O’. Clean (they closed the event site each night to clear littler and tidy up), two superb tent venues all seated and some great musicians including Richard Thompson ex Fairport Convention who was awesome. Our prime reason for going was to see Kate Rusby and she was terrific but it has to be said that we saw and listened to some great talent many of whom we had never heard of before. We really liked Little Rache and were amazed by The Treacherous Orchestra.
We really hope that this is a festival that will run again next year, it was GREAT (and civilised)!
