Occombe Festival is back on 15-16 June 2018. Although we have dropped “beer” from the festival name for 2018, it will still be a main feature of the festival. We promise there will be plenty to try alongside lots of local ales, ciders, wine, Prosecco and Pimm’s. And a feast of delicious local food too. It will be the same great party with a fantastic live musical line up including some old festival friends, some new ones and “Occombe Introducing” to showcase some of the country’s new and original new talent! So make a date for your diary now to join in Torbay’s only festival on a working farm. Our fantastic foot-stomping line-up is below or click here for more.
With 100% of festival profits going to Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust, to protect the places we love – Berry Head, Anstey’s Cove, Occombe Farm and Cockington – this festival offers good times that do good.
