Twinwood Festival
Saturday August 29 2015 to Monday August 31 2015 | Start Time Approximately 08:00
Twinwood Festival As ever, the festival will be a haven for music lovers who have an appreciation for good popular retro music. With 60 live bands playing music through the decades over 11 venues, including the centrepiece outdoor arena, festivalgoers are spoilt for choice.

The bands and artists will include the excellent Si Cranstoun, The London Swing Orchestra, 60s group The Overtures, Rock 'n' Roll band Joey and the Jivers, The Revolutionaires big band and many, many more class acts. From the classic days of Charlston, through the 40s to the rock and roll of the 50s and the music of the swinging 60s, the range of acts is vast – right the way through to electro-swing acts that blend tradition with modernity.

With so much choice, it’s just as well all the venues have acres of sprung dance floors which reverberate to the beat of the music, and after you've been to the retro dance lessons that will be available across the weekend, taking in swing dancing, modern jive, rock and roll, the jitterbug and plenty more besides, you’ll be on the floors as well.

To help set the scene, Twinwood Festival Village will also be filled with over 100 vintage traders selling fabulous fashions and collectables, plus there will be flying displays, classic vehicles and museums to feast your eyes on. There will even be a choice of hair and beauty salons to make sure you look the part.

The Sunday night will erupt into 10th year anniversary celebrations with one of the biggest artists to grace the Moseley Folk stage yet; The Monkees… Yes the actual Monkees!
Formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, The Monkees who were originally made for TV, released hit after and after such as ‘I Am A Believer’, ‘Daydream Believer’, ‘Last Train To Clarksville’ & ‘Steppin’ Stone’. The expected mass sing-a-long will be preceded by the spiritually uplifting Polyphonic Spree who took last year’s Lunar Festival [Another Moseley Folk event] by storm!

Friday January 15 2016 to Sunday January 17 2016 | Start Time Approximately 01:00
Bugged Out Weekender 2016 The Bugged Out Weekender began in Butlins’ flagship resort at Bognor Regis in January 2012. Clubbers from all over the country descended on the holiday resort for three nights of partying never too far from their own bed. Butlins is the perfect place for a weekend away – the huge auditoriums usually used for cabaret are turned into rave rooms by Bugged Out who bring in chest rattling Function One sound systems. You can choose to either stay in the incredible hotels – some only built in 2013 – or the apartments and there are plenty of great restaurants and pubs on site for re-fuelling in the day time as well as well known takeaways.

Day time activities include the famous pool party, a dj competition, pub quiz and musical bingo. At night the four rooms will shake to the sounds of our curated lineup, featuring friends, new talents and the best in the business. It’s a unique event which by nature of the accommodation on site means you’re bound to leave satiated by all the best dance music has to offer and no doubt a load of new friends.
