CokerFest

Escape to this Summer’s Best Party

Saturday 18th July 2015 at Longlands, Longlands Lane, near East Coker, Yeovil

The best kept secret in the summer calendar, CokerFest promises an unforgettable experience for 2015.  In its inaugural year, this locally-run and friendly festival is set to showcase a mix of great music in the Somerset countryside – certainly a county known for its outdoor music heritage!

Held at Longlands, a beautiful private garden with a lake near East Coker in Somerset, CokerFest will provide a welcome escape from reality on the first Saturday of the school holidays. The ticket sales are limited to exactly 499 people to keep a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and there will be fantastic locally-produced food from Stuart Saunders of nearby West Coker and plenty of different drinks from our fully licenced bar ‘JW’s Beer Engine’.

The party kicks off at 5:30pm on the 18th July, with performances from Crewkerne’s One Tree Hill, Yeovil band The Link, London’s Jagermeister-fuelled rock covers band Tall Order, and headlining will be Reckless, Exeter’s leading cover band. There really is something for everyone to shake their booty to, but if you choose to you can slip away to explore the garden, enjoy the tranquil lake area or sample some of the fantastic food.

Tickets are available in advance at the online box office www.cokerfest.co.uk for £11, or on the gate for £15. So what are you waiting for? Come and join in the best party in Yeovil – CokerFest!
