Based out of Watford, UK, The Dicemen can safely claim to be one of the most popular folk/post-punk/indie acoustic trios in the Herts Beds Bucks area! With a line-up of guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, banjo and acoustic bass they play their own songs alongside some original and sometimes unlikely versions of others you may already know.

Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra don’t care what genre you choose to put them in – western swing, country blues, ragtime hokum or whatever else– as long as you understand that they’re 100% sincere and 100% immersed in this stuff. This is no lazy pastiche, no dressing up box. They live and breathe this music and want you to get immersed with them.

Venue


A special place

The festival is held in the beautiful old medieval church of St. Mary's, set on the hill above the village of Edlesborough in Buckinghamshire. The earliest parts of the present church date from the late 1200s. The church is located at LU6 2EP - you can find a location map on the contact page.

The church is now owned by the Churches Conservation Trust and managed by the 'Friends of the Church on the Hill, Edlesborough, part of the EDaN group. You can find out more about the church and its history here.

Visitors to the church should be aware that access is either by way of a series of steps or a steep winding path through the cemetery. On the festival weekend, via the bridle path, there is parking in the field to the rear of the churchyard. We hire portaloos for our festival events which are located at the bottom of the steep steps. It is also advisable to bring a torch to guide you down the hill at the end of the event!

If you have any more questions re accessibility, please contact us.

Visitors should be aware that access is either by way of a series of steps or a steep winding path through the cemetery. Unfortunately it is not suitable for wheelchairs or the infirm.

A selection of local ales, wine and Pimms (of course!) will be available, as well as tea, coffee, soft drinks and snacks.

Anything you like (within reason!). Please be aware that the church can get cool in the evenings, even in summer months, so you might want to bring an extra layer.

Unfortunately camping is only available if you have a friend in the village with a garden! (Or alternatively you could try and make a friend during the event...)
