The Festival promises to be a glorious mixture of local and national music and is held in the romantic ruins of Kirklinton Hall. Maddy Prior, lead singer with Steeleye Span, which shot to fame in the early 1970s with hit singles such as Gaudete and All Around My Hat, is the impetus behind Stepping Stones from her home near Bewcastle.
Kirklinton Hall offers the Festival a highly atmospheric setting. There are plans for food stalls and a communal bonfire, and whilst Kirklinton’s main performance area is roofed, because the Hall is a ruin the music will be audible to people wandering around in the grounds as well as to those sitting or standing under cover.
