A festival celebrating English summer fun will see revellers rocking to the sounds of the Rolling Stones while enjoying local beers and having a flutter on live camel racing, all set in the stunning Hertfordshire countryside.

The ‘Todd in the Hole’ music festival will take place in Todd’s Green, Stevenage on the weekend of July 21 and 22, championing traditional English fun while giving partygoers the chance to let their hair down in style.

Featuring live music from the band Mick Jagger describes as the very best Stones tribute, traditional ‘village green’ games such as tug of war, classic cars and real ales, the event will offer something for everyone.

David Nye, director of The Great British Sausage company and co-founder of Todd in the Hole, said: “Todd in the Hole was born out of our love of the Hertfordshire countryside, our love of good food, country shows, live music and a jug of ale.

“We want our festival to be more than a music festival – we want it to be a family friendly, countryside, food and drink extravaganza. The event will be personal and welcoming to everyone. We want to get the local community together to enjoy some old-fashioned fun. It will be a feel-good throwback. We’ve also planned a free bus service to the main line station to ease traffic on the local lanes.”

Entertainment will include headline performances from The Counterfeit Stones, The Fifth Wheel and an ABBA tribute band.

Jazz and folk sessions will be a highlight of the weekend, while local rugby clubs go head-to-head in a tug of war challenge to raise money for mental health charity JOCA.

Tasty treats will be available as part of the ‘Feast in the Field’ – featuring local brands, The Great British Sausage company and The Crispy Duck Rotisserie, alongside street food from South Africa, India and Greece.  A huge pop-up pub and prosecco bar will be open throughout the event, with roaring fire pits keeping revellers warm at night.

Single day tickets are available in advance priced at £18.50 for adults, £15 for children aged 12 to 17, £10 for juniors aged four to 11 while under threes are free.

Advance weekend tickets are £35 for adults, £27 for children, £18 for juniors and free for anyone under three.
