So what’s it all about then?
The intimate Also Festival returns for a 5th year, taking place over three days this year from From Friday 29th June to Sunday 1st July 2018 at Park Farm, Compton Verney, in Warwickshire 9 miles east of Stratford-upon-Avon.
The announced acts include:- Sir Nigel Shadbolt, Hypnoblue, Steve Vertigo and Steve Parry, Daniel Rachel, Little Blue Horse, Steve Parry and Nick Gartland, Cassia, Will Varley, Marie White, Philip Escoffey, Ruebin, London International Gospel Choir, Jono McNeil, Robin Ince, and Chris Watson.
Also’s programming encourages experiences without constraints, whether that’s learning how to survive an apocalypse, trying a hand at stand-up, watching a band or sitting down to a three course dinner in the festival’s beautiful dining tent.
Across the weekend the festival will welcome professors, authors, theorists and more to share their ideas and bring them to life in a live setting. Books by speakers will be on sale for those who want to explore those ideas even further at home.
All a bit bonkers then – we should fit in just fine!
