The Magpies Festival LogoYork- based transatlantic folk band, The Magpies, will be hosting a new family-friendly folk festival – The Magpies Festival – on Saturday 14th August in the stunning grounds of Sutton Park.

The local community is central to the festival’s ethos, which will provide opportunities for emerging local musicians, whilst everything from food and drink down to the stage will be provided by independent local businesses, with the bar being supplied by Malton-based brewery Brass Castle and food provided by The Rose and Crown and Miss Daisy’s Tea Rooms.

Involving the village and ensuring that the festival is something that everyone in the area can enjoy, is hugely important to The Magpies. All residents of the village are invited to the festival with the offer of a 50% discounted ticket, available at by using the discount code VILLAGE50.

For those who choose not to come along, every precaution will be taken to ensure that noise and disruption in the village are kept to a minimum, with all amplified music ending before 11pm.

The line-up is set to include some of the UK’s finest folk, acoustic and americana musicians, including Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys, Rob Heron and The Tea Pad Orchestra, Blair Dunlop, Katherine Priddy, Dan Webster, Katie Spencer, Roswell, Tom Moore & Archie Moss, with more exciting names still to be announced.

The festival is being run in support of the national charity Women’s Aid, who are working to end domestic abuse against women and children, which is important to The Magpies, as an all-female band.

Established to be Covid-safe and adaptable to changes in government guidelines, with open-air stages and space for social distancing, The Magpies’ new venture is one festival that looks set to go ahead this summer.

We appreciate your support and very much hope to see some of you there.
