Brand new for 2008, the Limetree Festival is an art and music event set in the stunning and serene surroundings of Limetree Farm nature reserve at Grewelthorpe, near Ripon, North Yorkshire.

The festival promises to draw on the festivals of yesteryear with free camping, no astronomical prices, no economy burgers and no nasty toilets – a true non-corporate affair.

Musically the festival will be showcasing some of the best local talent with alternative entertainment from comedy, funfair rides, cabaret, street theatre, late night cinema, art, poetry, politics, literature and more.

There will also be themed cocktail bars, beer tents, locally sourced food and a healing field.
