The festival starts on Thursday, June 2 and runs until Sunday, June 5, with several big-name ticketed concerts by stars including Mica Paris, Joe Stilgoe and the Ronnie Scott's All Stars.

There will also be free live music performances at venues around the town, including outdoor concerts in the grounds of Kennaway House.

Blue Honey, consisting of a guitarist (Steve Broadhead), double bassist (Steve Smith) and female vocalist (Joan Jules), are playing at the Radway Inn on Friday, June 3 between 8pm and 10pm.
