The first year saw acts such as Last Summer Effect, Homework, Stanley Odd and KOBI take to the stage, should we say barn. The family feel, fresh produce, great beer and of course cracking music created a fantastic family vibe, so it is no surprise that a second Jocktoberfest has been announced.

Through their facebook, the festival has explained the reason for the introduction of tickets “This year we have had to apply for a public entertainments licence which is very expensive. We loved the atmosphere we had last year and believe you me, if we could keep the event free, we would.”

Tickets (£20 in advance, £25 on the day, Under 16s are free) go on sale here.
