Who needs Glastonbury when Yorkshire’s got Galtres? Now 11 years old, Galtres is rated as one of the best family festivals in the country. Combining eight stages of music and cabaret, more than 100 fine beers and ciders, mostly from Yorkshire, excellent local produce catering (from Whitby scampi to Yorkshire puds), loads for kids to do from film making to music workshops, and all set in a beautiful and spectacular rural setting overlooking the North York Moors. Enjoy the best music, plus comedy, theatre and offbeat performances at the night cabaret, films, family camping and clean loos too! It's organic, fair trade and green, and a share of proceeds go to charity. The festival guarantees fun for all ages and this year there’s a seaside theme, including Tall Trees Island with a galleon stage, beach and donkey rides. Whether you choose to become a dancer from Fame, help make giant puppets, or get a selfie with a troll, you will go home having tried something new and with lots to talk about! Galtres Parklands Festival takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend at Duncombe Park, Helmsley.
