Willowman Festival 2014 Food and Drink

Food: Whilst it may be true that an Army marches on its stomach, it is also fair to say that Festi goers need to keep energy levels high with varied and delicious food.

At Willowman they view quality food, drink and music as being interconnected. Food is an energy provider, drink is a social lubricant and music can intoxicate us all.

Please try their tremendous caterers to maximise your Willowman weekend adventure.

Over the last few years the Willowman Arms Real Ale Bar has proved to be hugely successful and with around 10 real ales available you will be positively spoiled for choice.

Courtesy of Wall’s County town Brewery brewed in Northallerton they even have their very own brew -Willow Wobbly. How cool is that?

Within the Bar there will be the second stage – the place of great musical magic. If you came last year you will know that there were many stunning live performances on this stage. It is an ideal area to sit and listen and watch some fantastic live music of from folk to fusion, from blues to jazz and from rock to roll.

Real Ale – Real Music – Real People!
