The pioneering, award-winning festival bursts with the best from Music and the Arts; wander from Film to Music, Comedy to Literature, Theatre and Poetry. All of this set in the stunning Suffolk countryside, with rolling hills, woods, a lake with deck chairs and a flock of multicoloured sheep.

2012's line-up includes Jack Dee in his only summer festival appearance, festival whore Tim Minchin, the Infinite Monkey Cage with Robin Ince, haircut Brian Cox and Al Murray, and other favourites like Reginald D Hunter, Andrew Maxwell and Josie Long. That's on the comedy stage: next door in the cabaret tent you'll find the Horne Section, Rich Hall, and a sketch melange of Cardinal Burns, Pappy's, Idiots of Ants, Sheeps and Late Night Gimp Fight. The Humble Quest for Universal Genius will be setting up shop in the Literary tent, while Mark Lamarr and Adam Buxton will be hosting shows in the Film and Music arena.
