Welcome to the Southmead Festival 2023

Saturday 8th July, 11am - 4pm

There's a prize for the best theme outfit - what's yours going to be?

This year's theme is 'Green'!

Slip on your sun cream, slap on your hat, and fill up your water bottles if it’s a hot one! (*there’ll be free water stations to re-fill your bottles*).

Pick your spot on the field, spread out your rug, unfold your chairs, open your sun brolly, pop up your gazebo, sit back and enjoy the entertainment.

Alternatively, pull on your wellies, put up your umbrella and stick on your cagoule!

Whatever the weather, we bet you’ll be singing along with headliner Hooper’s mix of the best songs in the book, or the Greenway Sing-a-longers belting out your favourites (they do belt ’em mind!).
