It’s back! ParkFest 2016 is being held in the North York Moors National Park on Saturday 23 July – Sunday 24 July, with dynamic ‘gypsy folk and roll’ band Holy Moly & the Crackers kick starting events as they take centre stage at 7pm on Saturday. Just back from their awesome debut performance at Glastonbury 2016, Holy Moly & the Crackers play a lively, moonshine mix of Romani, Americana and contemporary British folk-rock, which is guaranteed to get a few feet tapping!
Set in the enchanting grounds of the Moors National Park Centre, Danby, ParkFest 2016 is being held during National Parks Week, where people get a chance to explore, discover and celebrate the special qualities of our UK National Parks.
