Ben Gardner, organiser of the Jelly Festival said: “The Jelly Festival is a music festival that breaks the mould. I’m a keen festival goer and noticed there was a gap in the market for an event that would appeal to a wide audience and accommodate families, whilst still having musical integrity. I wanted to create a festival that is reflective of the old country fayres that bring the community together, whilst giving people a chance to perform and sell their produce.”
He adds: “Jelly holds these traditional elements but with high end production, mountains of decor and big acts that have travelled globally. There’s something to suit everyone and is a great place to bring the kids. This year is our fifth year and we are going to create the most incredible festival experience to date.”
