GillFest 2018 – part of the line up

Headline artists include folk legend Ralph McTell, comedian Arthur Smith and singer/songwriter Ren Harvieu, all of whom will be performing in one of Gillingham’s small, intimate venues (spoiler alert: and all of which are a Very Easy Walk from a particularly well located B&B …)

Last year’s line up included Rick Wakeman and Cara Dillon; we had guests staying with us for both of these gigs and in each case,  the guest managed to get to chat to the musicians afterwards and get photographs and autographs. So if you ARE a fan,  GillFest provides an amazing opportunity to enjoy a really intimate, friendly show with performers who appreciate the chance to play in a small venue.

GillFest runs from 29th June to 8th July 2018 and the full programme of events plus a secure online ticket buying link is available through their website.

Don’t forget to book your tickets and your accommodation … and, as part of our support for the Festival, just mention that you’re coming to stay as part of GillFest and we’ll include a few little extra freebies* in your booking.

Beth Nielsen Chapman

It takes place on Saturday 10th March at the same venue where last year GillFest hosted rock maestro Rick Wakeman; it’s a small and intimate auditorium space, so a wonderful opportunity to appreciate the music of a legendary country and pop singer-songwriter up close.
