    The Ferret’s legendary event is back for another year, bigger and better than ever. We turf the whole inside of the venue, set up hay-bales to sit on; we have guest craft ales and an otherwise fully stocked bar; a second bar filled with cider and summery drinks; a BBQ outside featuring our world-famous Ferret burgers and hot-dogs; DJs and other acts in a tent in the beer garden, and three days filled with brilliant and diverse acts on our stage. Events run from Friday night until Sunday night.
