Feltonbury Music and Art Festival

Saturday 22nd June 2019

Unlike its namesake, Glastonbury, there's no mud, no queues, no tailbacks! But we do have plenty of talent.

Feltonbury is a Music and Arts Festival held in the beautiful Northumbrian village of Felton. Now in its fourth year, it's an eclectic mix of music, song and general creative mayhem.

All are welcome and it's a great day out for the family.

For more information follow us on Facebook or email Neal Skelton at nealskelton@btinternet.com.
