The Red Sky Festival (formerly Sun Shine Music Fest), is once again being held in Padworth over the last bank holiday weekend in May (25th/26th May).  Following the incredible popularity of last year’s inaugural festival, the organisers have once again taken the best elements of all the festivals and combined them into one fabulous event with something for everyone. There will be real ale and cider from award winning breweries plus prosecco and spirits bars, and for the kids there’s a fairground and entertainment all weekend, plus all your favourite food stalls from around the country.


The music line-up is rocking again too, with headliners and 80’s legends T’Pau and multi-million selling, British glam rock band, Doctor & The Medics, taking to the stage.  In support are some of the country’s favourite tributes to: Tina Tuner, Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, Bruno Mars, INXS, The Pet Shop Boys, and by popular local demand , ska band The Skangsters and awesome rock covers band Dirtbag will also be playing. After dark, the Silent Disco will keep the party going until the early hours. With ticket prices starting at £19 for adults, a special rate for teens and kids under 13’s free, we are sure the low cost will get you excited! VIP, Full weekend, camping and campervan tickets are available too. Why not make a minibreak of it without the travel! This event will really be a highlight of your festival year, and will support of some great local causes too!
