19th-22nd July 2018
As you will all know, we took a year off in 2017 to have a rest and take stock for the future.
We are pleased to announce that Larmer Tree will now be a three day, four night festival during the weekend of 19th-22nd July 2018 and are thrilled with the addition of two new team members to support in taking the festival forward.
Festival-goers will be pleased to know that earlybird tickets for the full weekend will go on sale on Thursday 30th November at 10am. Day tickets will go on sale in spring, subject to availability. Watch this space…
New Creative Team
Sarah Dennehy has joined us as Creative Director, and will lead on programming. Sarah has programmed and produced festivals in the UK and overseas – most recently Perth Festival, Australia, and is currently also Executive Producer on Festival of Voice, a new biennial international arts festival for Cardiff.
Sarah will be joined by Rachel Kinchin who will head-up Larmer Tree’s marketing and communications. They have successfully collaborated on Festival of Voice in Cardiff, and look forward to embarking on another festival together. Rachel has experience with venues, companies, artists and international festivals including Edinburgh Fringe and Folkestone Triennial.
Sarah and Rachel join the existing team of Lucy Babb (Operations Director) and the Board of Directors James Shepard, Julia Safe and Rob Challice.
The Larmer Tree gang both new and old, have settled in to our new office in the heart of Salisbury. James and Julia took a well-deserved summer off and Rob did a handful of big cycle rides here and abroad. They are getting into the swing of things working with Sarah and Rachel who have been getting to grips with their new roles as well as tackling some challenges with modern technology. We’ll be welcoming back Lucy from maternity leave soon and saying hello to our new Festival Coordinator, Briony. We’re all set!
We’re all really aware that we’ve been promising you some news for some time now; so we’re very grateful for your patience and your continued support. Roll on November 30th.
James commented, ‘The whole team are incredibly excited about working together to make 2018 the best Larmer Tree Festival yet. The festival remains independent and will keep the quirky, friendly, fun feeling atmosphere we’ve developed over 26 years and looking after our festival-goers will remain a priority. We’re looking forward to some new surprises for our audiences as well.’
