Echo And The Bunnymen At Headstock Festival Newstead 9-11 September 2011

Named after a colliery headstock, the structure used to transport miners up and down a mining shaft, Headstock Festival will be taking place at Newstead and Annesley Country Park 9-11 September.

Echo And The Bunneymen
Set up in 2010 by Newstead Enterprise, Headstock Festival was started up to help create a sustainable future for the village of Newstead which suffered severe deprivation when its coal mine closed in 1987. The festival is a not-for-profit, eco and family friendly green social enterprise and is headlined this year by Echo and The Bunnyman and The Lightning Seeds. Over one hundred acts will be taking part including Red Dwarf's Craig Charles. As well as a dedicated children’s area called Kidstock, the festival will host street theatre, circus performances, DJ workshops and light installations. Real ale and ciders and home made food will also be available at reasonable prices.
