The Ramsbottom Festival 2011

People used to say that it was “grim up North” ”“ Well even if that remains the case, judging by the number of festivals being held ”˜up North’ we certainly know how to party.

One of the early entrants to the festival season is the inaugural Friends of Mine Festival (20-22 May) just a few miles south of Manchester, then there is the ”˜In The City Festival’ the ”˜Manchester International Festival; Manchester itself is awash with live music venues, Liverpool have their own ”˜Sound City Festival’, the ”˜Mathew Street Festival’, and to the outrage of the locals ”˜Eric’s is to re-open. But its not just the big cities that are getting in on the action”¦

I give you”¦ The Ramsbottom Festival 2011
Where?? I hear you cry”¦. Ramsbottom is a small and picturesque town nestled in the hills above Bury in Greater Manchester about half an hour from Manchester city centre.

Over the weekend of the 16-18th September Ramsbottom Cricket Club will play host to The Waterboys, The Animals, Kid British, Cherry Ghost, Badly Drawn Boy and more, with real ale from local brewers Outstanding, and park and ride transport to the festival on hand via vintage steam trains.

Tickets are on sale now; prices range from £12 to just £55 for the full weekend
