Bearded Theory confirms dates for 2019 festival;

Organisers of the Bearded Theory Festival have confirmed the dates for the 2019 event; Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th May 2019

The festival will once again set up in the grounds of Catton Hall, Sth Derbyshire

This years event was marred by difficult traffic management issues, this caused some serious delays to people arriving on the opening Thursday; as a result of this the festival organisers have declared a few changes;

The main items are that we have decided to reduce the festivals overall capacity by 1,500, gates will open on Thursday at 9am and will remain open until 9pm, we will have no music on the larger stages on Thursday but the arena areas and bars will be open later in the afternoon.

For regular attendees, this will merely be a switch back to all pre 2018 Bearded Theory festivals, so doesn’t present any issues; in addition to remedy the parking issues all campervan and caravan spaces will be marked out in advance and the exact pitch sizes and will be detailed at the time of booking.

The festival will be operating a full 100% no disposable cups policy in all bars in 2019, we will be selling metal enviro cups at cost price and a sturdy plastic stackable pint pot instead or you are welcome to bring your own. Full glass washing facilities will be made available or tankards replaced for clean upon request.

We will be upgrading the Pallet sound system to the very best available, we have moved the pirate ship and dance tent to mitigate noise bleed. We have a new area incorporating a theatre, spoken word & protest tent and a circus which is being worked on currently. The rest is back as before…

Tickets will go on sale on September 15th; prices etc will be announced on or around 1st September 2018

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
