Village Pump Festival
Highlights by FromeFM.
The Village Pump Folk Festival is a folk music festival that takes place about 9 miles from Frome. It has its roots over 40 years ago in a barn at the Lamb Inn, Trowbridge, it then moved to Stowford Manor Farm, Farleigh Hungerford before settling in its new home at White Horse Country Park, Westbury. The music covers a variety of genres from folk and roots to blues, celtic and Ceilidh with a variety of other entertainment including a family field, with puppetry and story telling.
In 2012 The Village Pump Folk Festival was reborn at a new site, but with old friends at the helm. On this FromeFM Special, Pierre, Alex, Sara and Pete talk to artists, festival go-ers and stall holders and get a feel for the new 2012 Festival.
The festival returned in 2013 and presenters Alex, Pierre, Tim and John went behind the scenes to speak to the Proclaimers, Jess Vincent, Nic Jones, John Alderslade and more.
In 2014 a series of three highlight programmes were produced for each day of the festival. Programmes were edited overnight and broadcast the following day.
