Hundreds of people are expected to descend on Shrewsbury from August 22nd and artists include Bellowhead, Seth Lakeman, Lau, Blackie and The Rodeo Kings, The Dhol Foundation, Steve Knightley’s Wake the Union and The Full English.

As well as music and dance, there are dozens of workshops throughout the bank holiday weekend.
