Now in its fourth year, Jelly Festival in the beautiful grounds of Compton Hall in Norfolk truly breaks the mould and sets the standard as one of the UKs coolest new boutique festivals.

Dubbed a family-friendly Secret Garden Party by the media, for the first time the Jelly Festival will be opening its doors to campers a day early so people can get settled for the fun that lies ahead. With fantastic acts such as The Freestylers, The Egg, Concrete Disco and bands from as far afield as Cuba confirmed to perform and a host of surreal sights to experience, this years Jelly Festival is set to be the best yet!

Fantastic music lies at the heart of Jelly Festival and the aim of the organisers is to bring to Norfolk acts you already know as well as up and coming talent who you will be adding to your summer playlist as soon as the festival is over!



Real love and care has also gone into making Jelly Festival a surreal flight of fantasy served for your delectation on a wobbling plate that will be enjoyed by all ages; the festival stages are even styled on the fun concept of them being different rooms within a house!

The main Living Room stage is modelled on a bizarre dream-like living room with sofas, lamps and plants and will play host to an eclectic range of music beginning with folk, Gypsy Jazz, and world music before hosting Indie, funk bands as the day goes on and dance music in the evening.

On the other Bedroom Bar stage will be the cream of local talent until 12 midnight then, when the Living Room stage closes, the party carries on into the small hours as the bedroom bar dance party, playing the freshest electronic beats, while the Circus Big Top Bedroom Bar is modelled on a set of Pyjamas with a blue and red striped pattern and comfortable and relaxing dcor. The music runs from 12 noon to 4 am Saturday night.

The Jelly Festivals three bars stock the very best booze including delicious European lagers, wholesome local ales and fruity Pimms all at local pub prices. The cider bar meanwhile will provide festival-friendly litre bottles of quaffable cider, sourced from a farm just a bike ride down the road, while in the Cocktail bar Arthur and his team will be playing out the Tom Cruise role in the classic 80s hit movie as Mojitos, slammers and other explosive concoctions will be flying over the bar!

A big part of the Jelly Festival ethos is to operate along ethical and environmentally friendly lines and support and promote the wonderful local family-run businesses of North Norfolk.

With this in mind, the Kitchen brings together a wonderful selection of local food and drink stalls selling true gourmet grub at amazing prices. From Arthur Howells award winning burgers and sausages, Mandarin caf from Banham selling Indian treats and Compton hog roast from the farm to Thai food from Fakenham, Norfolk cider, stone baked pizza from Norwich and Charcoal-grilled Cypriot food from Hunstanton there is guaranteed to be food to suit every taste and palette.

On the Garden Path there are arts and crafts stalls and demonstrations while kids will have the time of their lives in the custom-designed Play Room with everything from bouncy and wobbly inflatables, climbables and ridables to interactive workshops so they can come away with some extra life skills. Throughout the festival, the family friendly vibe means kids can also just hang out with mum and dad and enjoy the music and when the day draws to a close, there is even a separate campsite for families to have their own world of peaceful bliss.

As the name suggests, the Jelly Festival is one big, glistening homage to all things Jelly and tonnes of the wobbly stuff will be served throughout the day including jelly cocktails and softer jelly treats for the kids with all donations going to Anglia Air Ambulance.

From the youngest sprog to the young at heart, more mature lover of great music and everyone else in between, Jelly Festival is a real melting pot with people milling about, dancing, laughing, making friends, and its one of the few places on earth you can see teenagers out with Mum and Dad, but not feeling embarrassed!

So why not wobble your way down to Jelly Festival this Summer? Because from the hottest new singer-songwriters and bands to world- renowned DJs, the Jelly Festival breaks the mould!
