The marvellous Kate Tempest heads to Deer Shed Festival 8!
Bravo, top marks and a big blooming well done Deer Shed Festival!
The family friendly festival have announced an absolutely cracking line up for Deer Shed 8, headlined by Scottish alternative rock band Teenage Fanclub, Neil Hannon’s The Divine Comedy and Mercury Prize nominee (& total poetic legend!) Kate Tempest!
It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of the totally talented Kate, a truly unique poet and playwright, possibly the greatest of her generation!
It’s her distinctive mix of spoken word and rap narratives, performed against a soundtrack of thumping beats that has won her many devoted fans and industry accolades such as the Ted Hughes Prize for innovation in poetry, a Herald Angel Award for Brand New Ancients and a Mercury Prize nomination.
Deer Shed Festival 8 offers three fun filled days of contemporary music and art and takes place at a lovely 90 acre site at Baldersby Park near Topcliffe, in North Yorkshire. It runs from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd July.
The theme this year is The Wilderwild where the Deer Shed team invite you to explore the fringes of Baldersby Park, build dens, learn about its diverse plants and trees and essentially get away from it all.
The rest of the literary & spoken word line-up is revealed tomorrow (05/04/17) – We can’t wait!
