Festivals to Enjoy in 2019

Festivals to Enjoy in 2019

There has never been a better time to look at attending a festival in the UK. With so many to choose from that run throughout the year there is sure to be something that caters for everyone’s tastes. From music, food, literature, poetry, pets and more, there are many established festivals to attend and lots of new ones springing up all the time.

At “Cyber Geek Girl”, we’ve picked out five of 2019’s stand out festivals.

Fairport’s Cropredy Convention: 8 – 10 August 2019

Fairport’s Cropredy Convention is run by the hugely popular folk band Fairport Convention and has been running since the early 1980’s. It takes place in a small village in Oxfordshire called Cropredy, and once a year the villages buzzes to the sound of folk music in all its glory with visitors who come from all over the world to take in the ambience of the event. An eclectic line up is always on offer which culminates on the last night of the festival with Fairport Convention and Friends with the last song always being “Meet on the Ledge”. This is one not to miss for sure.

Glastonbury Festival: 26 – 20 June 2019

The king of all festivals in the UK, Glastonbury transforms into a small village of its own for the duration of the event. Every year that it runs it never fails to impress with a stunning line up of the very best live performers and tents for every interest imaginable, such as a spoken word and poetry tent. Tickets sold out for this one pretty much as soon as they went on sale, so you must be quick to snap them up as soon as they become available. But if you don’t manage to get tickets the BBC usually covers the event which means you can watch it from the comfort of your own living room without the mud and wellies if it rains.

Leeds Digital Festival: Dates TBA

If tech and digital is your thing, then look no further than the Leeds Digital Festival. In 2018 it boasted no fewer than 170 events, 20,000 attendees, 400 companies that took part and over 600 speakers. It also had more tech events in Leeds than in San Francisco! The festival will be back in 2019, and dates will be announced soon.

Cheltenham Literature Festival: 4 – 13 October 2019

Love books and reading? The Cheltenham Literature Festival is for you! With some of the biggest and brightest names in the world of literature, books, spoken word and poetry this festival has it all. Cheltenham also plays host to a music festival and science festival so if those are more your thing there is something to suit your tastes. A must visit on the UK festival circuit!

Taste of London Food Festival: 19 – 23 June 2019

For those of us who love food this festival is a must. It has established itself as the foodie event of the year. It is held in Regent’s Park where you can try new kinds of street food and learn from the experts who make it. Masterclasses in cookery and cocktail making are also available.  For more great food and drink festivals that cater for every diet and taste, and to find some that are closer to your location if you don’t live in London, visit “Eat Drink Seek”.
