.Oakham Festival is looking forward to a fantastic celebration of the arts from June 20th to 30th 2013. This year we are in partnership with the Grainstore to bring some fantastic bands to the Funky Tent weekend on 28th to 30th June. On Saturday night the headline act is Toploader supported by The New Forbidden (Lloyd Groseman’s Band), The Boobytraps, Strike Up The Colours, Locked Out and the winners of this year’s Battle of the Bands. Tickets will be on sale for this event on March 1st.
The festival is also delighted to be working with the East Midlands Book Awards who are bringing their prize ceremony to Rutland for the first time. A fantastic event which has grown over the 3 years it has been running and a great collaboration for the Oakham Festival. This is to be held at Barnsdale Lodge Hotel with Hambleton Hall providing canapés.
A literary trail around Oakham is being planned by the Knit and Natter group as their contribution to the theme.The festival has all the favourite items such as Oakham School Big Band Bonanza, Orchestral concert and the musical which will be Bugsy Malone. Rutland Concert band are performing again and there is a welcome return of Corby Male Voice Choir.
