Festival is ready to rock

The eagerly-awaited and award-winning music festival Bearded Theory returns later this month.

It is to take place in the grounds of Kedleston Hall from May 17-19.

Due to exceptional demand from local residents, and those less willing or able to camp in Derbyshire during May, Bearded Theory Festival organisers announced that a limited number of day tickets for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday have been made available.

With each day featuring over 50 artists, alongside internationally renowned headliners, Reverend And The Makers (pictured) and New Model Army (Friday), Asian Dub Foundation (Saturday) and Levellers (Sunday), day tickets provide more than 12 hours of family-friendly festival music and entertainment.

Adult day tickets are £37.50, children’s tickets from £5 (under fives can attend free). A family day ticket for two adults and two children is £80.

With hundreds of artists performing across five stages, there is music and entertainment to suit all ages and tastes.

Bearded Theory isn’t just all about the bands though. Whether it is the festival’s location, the Thornbridge Brewery-run bars, the extensive selection of independent food traders, market and craft activity stalls or immersing the little ones in the magical world of the acre-sized Angel Gardens Children’s area, there is always something for all to see and do.

One of the biggest highlights of the weekend is the annual World Record Attempt for the Greatest Number of People Wearing False Beards.

Taking place on Sunday just after the performance by Australian musical comedy sensation, The Beards, the event brings everyone at the festival (and their false beards) together.
