FAR BANK OPEN-AIR STAGE
FAR BANK is the location of the main open-air stage at #Hedfest22.
Far Bank is the grassed area that extends all the way from New Road until Burstwick drain. It marks what was the old boundary of Hedon before the ancient Borough acquired the land upon which Westlands estate is now built upon. Normally a quiet area with a play park towards its south-east end and South Holderness Cricket Club’s Middle Lane ground to its East. At its far southern end there is a handy footbridge takes you across Burstwick Drain and you are in to the grounds of the Haven Arms pub.
BUT on Friday 3 June 2022 Far Bank will take on a very different guise for Hedon Festival 2022.
The #Hedfest22 open-air stage will take up an area next to the Army Cadets building. A viewing area (fenced off with barriers) will be available to watch the festival from. While heading towards the play park you will see the children’s rides area, an I-box car attraction, and a climbing wall. You’ll also find the beer tent (note glasses or bottles will not be allowed anywhere on the festival site and drinks will be decanted into plastic). There will be some 15 stalls including food stalls. Portaloos will be available on site.
The entertainment on the open-air stage will be top class with a mix of original and popular music. The Stage at Far Bank opens at 2pm. Runs until close at 10pm. Note: At 1.45pm on Far Bank it’s the Inter-Pubs Tug of War Competition!
