Set within the idyllic grounds of a 17th century farm, Nozstock retains the family friendly atmosphere that means people return to year on year. From the pear tree-lined orchard to the converted barns, secret areas, cinetent, coppice and glistening lake guest promoters play host to a rich musical tapestry of punk,dubstep, drum and bass, psy-trance, ska, acoustic, classical, folk and blues.
In addition there are a whole host of treats for the kids in this year’s all new Little Wonderland kids area. Here the little ones can learn how to make carnival costumes, puppets, listen to stories or just kick back for a well-deserved nap.
The natural topography of the site is truly spectacular allowing you to get lost in all manner of hidden dingles and dells. Dance the night away in a bull pen, don your best gloves and top hat for the cabaret, laugh uncontrollably to world class comedians in the comedy tent, learn stage combat or watch the out of this world light show in the gnarled trees of the coppice – Nozstock has it all.
A quick journey down the rabbit hole brings you out into the mad-capped world of the Nozstock Village with the Farrell Circus Troupe workshops, juggling, puppetry and roaming Rainbow Collectors. Other delights include a vintage tractor display, acoustic stage, cinetent and some huge surprises to be announced very soon.
However, it’s not just the creative vision, performance art, and visual splendour that sets Nozstock apart, there is a real underlying sense of community with locally produced food, farmers market, craft workshops and the BBC Hereford and Worcester Introducing Stage promoting local talent.
