This year marked the second ever Farmfest and organisers were hoping to better the crowd of 300 which attended last year, 
having made 499 tickets available for the event.

Harriet Hamber Stott, The Kriptons, Tom & Lewis and Beyond The Line were among those due to perform at the rural music showcase.

The event is organised by businesses 
based at Grange Farm to help musicians 
show off their talent and provide a springboard for youngsters hoping to pursue 
a career in music. picture: mark bickerdike.
