A POPULAR festival in Ulverston is returning for its 10th anniversary this year.

June 14 to 16 will see the comeback of Another Fine Fest, taking place across town, including a vast spectrum of artistic activity and music.

The free, family-friendly festival will take place on two outdoor stages and within a multitude of partner venues. It will feature DJs, bands, circus performers, artists, poets, magicians, festival traders and a fairground for the younger visitors.

Ten award-winning comedians will preview their Edinburgh shows at the Laurel & Hardy Museum.

New in 2023 was a multi-channel silent disco playing everything from rock and metal to pop anthems, which proved so popular that organisers have promised they will be bringing it back.

Organisers are also hoping to offer many interactive workshops to teach new skills to all ages and host some brand new street shows for their 10th anniversary.

"All of this of course, will depend on the success or otherwise of our funding applications and forthcoming crowdfunder," explained Dave Crossley
the festival director.

"Last year more people donated to our crowdfunder than ever before - almost twice as many. 823 of you amazing folks helped to make Fine Fest a thing.

"We love you all so much and absolutely appreciate that we would not exist without you. With all the price rises this year, we really need more festival-goers to donate just a couple of pounds if they are able or give our campaign a share if not.

"We totally appreciate how things are tight for all of us right now which is why we want to offer world class entertainment for free on our doorstep."

The festival will also raise funds for two local charitable organisations, including St Mary’s Hospice and Ulverston Food Project, as well as donate trees to local tree planting schemes.
