Happy New Year

Tickets for Bearded Theory 2016 are flying out and in the last 3 weeks we have sold over 2000 tickets. With record sales when tickets first went on sale and with what we have sold to date we expect to be sold out in early March. We have less than 200 campervan and caravan passes left also.

Onto more exciting things………


We are delighted to have finally decided upon and secured Squeeze and Arrested Development as our joint Sunday night headliners. Squeeze, fronted by Glen Tilbrook will be performing their new wave and post punk singalong anthems to the Bearded masses. Suitably warmed up, USA based hip-hop legends Arrested Development have been booked to bring the house with their closing set that is guaranteed to get everyone bouncing. Finally, the Rumour Cubes who are a post-rock band and likened to Godspeed You! will be opening the Pallet on Sunday and finalise the Sunday line up.


We still have 2 amazing bands to announce and they will be announced in a week or so.

Due to being harassed by many people we gave in and booked them naughty lads from the tropics, The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican who will join the Woodland on Sunday. We still have the headliner to come for the Woodland.
