You might have read that Bearded Theory is on the move, to Catton Hall
in Derbyshire which enables us to set permanent foundations for future
years. This is an established festival location which has been home to
Bloodstock and Big Session, and we’re really excited to be setting
up home here.

Straight away it means we can do more: the live in vehicle/caravan
field has a large 2000 vehicle capacity ensuring that we will never
sell out of passes and the largest hill is the size of a mole hill. A
permanent road has been installed into the field ensuring easy
entrance and exit regardless of weather conditions.

We are adding to our stages with the installation of The Nook a sound
system and chill out area based in the woods. Family camping will now
have its own designated field with a beautiful view of Catton Hall.
The showers will remain free of charge in all campsites and finally
all tickets now include Thursday camping.

Because of the move to the new site, we had to change our dates from
what we originally planned, and we’ll now be holding the festival
over the Bank Holiday weekend. Hopefully it doesn’t mean that any of
you won’t be able to join us at our new home in 2014.

We are actively programming our stages, but since our formation, we
only book acts on the back of suggestions from you. So if you
haven’t already done so, please get suggesting either on our forum
here ( ) or on our Facebook page
here ( ).

The line up will start to be announced over the coming weeks and we
are delighted to announce PETER HOOK & THE LIGHT will be performing,
a Joy Division and New Order classic set.

Please note our online shop has been updated and we have a lot of
merchandise for sale, so if you fancy a good gift or some not so tatty
t-shirts head over the shop by clicking on the button below.
