Music on the Marr

Music on the Marr


Music on the Marr is a completely not-for-profit festival which celebrates great music, diversity and excellent entertainment for all ages. They have real music by real musicians. They have real ale by local brewers. And they have good food, great hospitality and lots of smiling. Eagle eyed visitors to their village will know that their motto is #pleasedance - and they try to bring that spirit of friendship, entertainment and fun alive for a few special days in July.

The festival centres on the Marr (the village green) in Castle Carrock, which can be found nestling in the foothills of the North Pennines, four miles south of Brampton, Carlisle, in north east Cumbria. The music happens in several venues – the main marquee, the school, the church, and the village’s award-winning public house ‘The Duke of Cumberland’.

They have music workshops, wandering magicians, circus acts, poetry, traditional dancing, yoga and a high-quality arts market. Homemade food can be found in the Magnificent Tea Emporium, and delicious coffees come courtesy of the Casbah Coffee Van. There’s also guided nature trails over the weekend into the beautiful Geltsdale countryside.

2019 will be the tenth year of the not-for-profit festival. Every year they aim to improve on what’s gone before. They are very inclusive and like to encourage young people to enjoy live entertainment, therefore all accompanied children 16 years and under will have free access to the entire festival.

Head along and enjoy something you’ll remember for a very long time.
