What is it?
Ulverston’s Another Fine Fest is back for the fourth year, from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th June. The festival will feature live window and graffiti art, music and DJs, circus performers, comedy, street theatre and magic.
The event was created to celebrate the birth of Stan Laurel and to celebrate the town. For the day, the beer gardens, streets, windows, walls, cobbles, and even lamp posts become awash with weird and wonderful activity.
This year’s festival will see 165 acts performing over 12 stages during the weekend. The event will kick off on Sunday evening with a ticketed show from comedian Tony Law at the Laurel and Hardy Museum. Over the weekend there will be a whole host of free events including yarn bombing, live graffiti, the smallest club on Earth (complete with dancefloor and DJ), Uncle Taco’s extraordinary Imaginarium, the Great Gordo Gamsby Show, and Victorian street pedlars, Fopplewig and Douglas.
Live music will take place at the outdoor and pub stages, and along buskers alley, throughout the Saturday and Sunday with music from local bands and artists. There will also be workshops, including circus skills and pebble painting taking place.
