Friday night: 3 Acoustic acts (Still to be announced!)
1pm: Group walk
Meet us outside the stretch tent and the Vans In The Valley team will take you on a stunning walk through the dales. Everyone including dogs are welcome. It's 3 miles long and we'll end it in Reeth where you can explore the local area, have an ice cream or check out the local pubs.
3pm-4pm: Circus Skills
Everyone's welcome to join in! Come join the Vans In The Valley team and have a little go of our range of circus toys. All ages are welcome.
An excuse to get yourself into the arena, grab a pint and sit back and do a quiz. It's the perfect start to kicking off Saturday night. The winning team will win £20 cash.
5:30pm-11pm: The bands/performers start. More news to come soon!
First act confirmed: Edwina Hayes
A firm favourite from the team, Edwina Hayes has a beautiful voice, perfect for Saturday afternoon at Vans In The Valley.
Edwina brings together English folk, Americana and the rich Northern singer/songwriter tradition to create a sound that’s truly her own. Highly accomplished she’s toured with such notable performers as Jools Holland, Van Morrison, Nanci Griffith and Loudon Wainwright III to name just a few. Edwina numbers Michael Parkinson and Mike Harding among her fans and the title track of her album Pour Me A Drink was covered by Nanci Griffith who calls her 'the sweetest voice in England'. Her cover of the Randy Newman song Feels Like Home was featured in the Cameron Diaz film My Sister's Keeper and has since had over ten million plays on Spotify and over thirty million plays on You Tube. Edwina's 4th album Ruby Rose was released in 2022.'The sweetest voice in England. A wonderful young woman, so gifted and full of song.' Nanci Griffith'Haunting, honeyed, solo songwriter.' The Guardian
