Another Fine Fest
June 17 ― 18
On 17th and 18th June with your help, Ulverston will once again erupt in a multicoloured feast of live music, DJs, circus, street theatre, live street art, window painting, yarnbombing, stand up pia of various other weird and wonderful activity. Yes, that’s right, the world record breaking Another Fine Fest is back to rock the cobbles
with the fourth instalment of it’s free multi-arts festival.
After just 3 years, Another Fine Fest has established itself as one of the firm favourites in Ulverston’s festival calendar.
It is also one of the most well attended with estimates of
up to 10,000 revellers flocking to Ulverston for the 2016 instalment, 1180 of whom came together to secure a Guinness World record for the biggest ever shaving
foam pie fight!
Locally organised, enjoyed and celebrated festival.
We’ve had many requests to add additional days & feel
that now is the right time to do this. We will not overstretch ourselves as we wish to ensure that all days are kept to a high standard. Therefore the plan is to develop slowly
but surely each year. In 2017 we will begin with just one show on Friday 16th, quality stand up comedy with Canadian surrealist legend Tony Law at the Museum!
Then, extending the madness that Saturday traditionally brings, we shall keep The Melodrome Stage rocking on the Sunday 18th, featuring lots of live music alongside the usual, unusual variety of vibrant entertainment for all ages as well as some special comedy shows at the Museum.
A warm and heartfelt thanks goes out as ever to all of
the beautiful, generous members of the public that have contributed to the cause via our crowd funding campaign, your donations along with help from Ulverston BID, Ulverson Town Council, the Arts Council & our sponsors have made this festival a reality. We love you so much and would not be here without you!
So then people, we ask that you start shining up your dancing shoes and make sacrifice to the solar deities. Help us bring in the sunshine and good times once again for this year’s spectacular.
