Royal William Yard Festival 27th and 28th May 2017

Posted on May 22nd, 2017 by Alison Roberts

The festival will deliver a true example of what is best in Britains Ocean City as well as drawing significant acts from further afield.

The festival will showcase some top West Country musical talent, and bring areas of the historic ex-naval victualling yard to life with beautiful classic cars, motor bikes and boats providing the backdrop to six stages, dotted around the yard offering an array of musical styles.

There will be a relaxed, Balearic-style sundowners bar and a main evening event in the Factory Cooperage with bands, DJs and a cabaret and cocktail bar. There will be a host of great, locally caught street food on offer, including tasty treats from the Bigbury-based Oyster Shack and wine from the award-winning Sharpham Estate near Totnes via our own Le Vignoble.

West Country folk singer Seth Lakeman is to headline at the festival and UK house music legends Full Intention will be closing the Factory Cooperage on the Saturday 27th. Closing The Harbour Stage will be Molotov Jukebox, whose lead singer is also Game of Thrones and Harry Potter star, Natalia Tena.

Also appearing will be Meadowlark on their homecoming gig to Plymouth.

The Exeter-based Sound of the Sirens – Abbe Martin and Hannah Wood will also be performing bringing tracks from their newly released acoustic album For All Our Sins, following a whirlwind year which included performing in front of thousands at the Isle of Wight Festival and supporting Rick Astley on his UK arena tour.
