Discover another lovelier world. Where three generations can party together, where people still talk to each other. A place you can wear whatever you want, sing your heart out, play like a child and dance like no-one’s watching.

Towersey Festival is the longest running independent festival in the country and it really is a family affair. First organised by Denis Manners in his back garden in 1965, it has been handed down the generations with his grandson Joe in place as the current Festival Director.

Today Towersey Festival is still an authentic independent festival with an amazing community spirit. It’s about family, folk, music and arts. It's an exciting, inspiring, relaxing and homely place where you can see a line-up of top musicians and artists as well as discover new music, learn new skills and experience new things. It’s a festival for everyone, from small kids to grandparents, a place you can create family memories together. And from the moment you arrive you will feel part of the bigger Towersey family.

Our site is safe and practical but inspiring and creative, providing the perfect playground to make your Towersey memories. During the weekend there are 100’s of events programmed from large gigs and big stages down to a handful of people in a storytelling session; vibrant dances, street theatre and workshops where you can pick up a new skill.  There is so much to discover you never know what you might stumble across as the day unfolds. 

Towersey will always be a folk and roots festival with one foot firmly in our proud history and foundations and one excitedly in the future of festivals and music.

We aim to bring you an experience which will live with you forever, provide you with life-long friends and ensure there is nowhere else in the world you would rather be on the August Bank Holiday!
