After a successful first outing, the Cottingham Folk Festival returns in summer 2016, taking place across the August Bank Holiday Weekend in the picturesque East Yorkshire village of Cottingham, near Hull. An exciting addition to the region’s already blossoming music calendar, this three-day extravaganza will see an incredible line-up of artists descend on what is thought to be the largest village in the UK.

SCREAMING TARTS PRESENTS… The South (feat. ex-members of The Beautiful South) + support.
Sunday July 17th 2016. The Civic Hall, Cottingham.
Once in a while a band appears that strikes a chord with many. Their music becomes an integral part of a nation's psyche and the soundtrack to many people's lives. Ingrained in the hearts of many is one such band, the Beautiful South.
Over 3 decades this band became a household name, selling over 15 million albums. On disbanding in 2007, original members Dave Hemingway and Alison Wheeler went on to form The South and with mainstays Damon Butcher and Gaz Birtles (keyboards and brass since the very beginning of The Beautiful South) this talented 9 piece continue to celebrate the music of The Beautiful South and, indeed, The South.
Want a brilliant night out? Want a moment of euphoria as old memories flood back and new ones are formed?
With both old and new tunes that stand the test of time, experience this amazing live band performing great songs from Sweet Refrains and classics that can never be forgotten: including Perfect 10, A Little Time, Rotterdam, Don't Marry Her, You Keep It All In, to name but a few. You'll be surprised at how many songs you already know!
Isn't it time you headed South?
