Ireby is a small farming village with a population of about 160.  It is situated on the north west edge of the Lake District National Park; 12 miles from Keswick  and Cockermouth and 18 miles from Carlisle

I have to admit to being biased because Charles & Noleen have asked me to MC ever since the Festival started - for which I feel privileged - but as I have nothing to do with the organisation I can say without hesitation that it is a wonderful event. Small, beautiful, great atmosphere, always a lovely crowd. When you couple that with a wide range of music - often some brilliant surprises - it all adds up to a special experience. So, thanks for putting it on (and thanks for letting me make a prat of myself in front of a marquee full of people!) - I wouldn't have it any other way!
