New musical acts added to the Idler Festival line-up

We’re thrilled to announce a host of excellent musical additions to this year’s Idler Festival. Headliners Louis Theroux, Dr John Cooper Clarke and Sally Phillips are joined by Chris Difford of Squeeze and folk musician Sam Lee.

Elsewhere, we’ll have performances from The Magic Lantern, Dom Aversano on the hand pans and Ed Hopwood’s ragtime band in the orchard. There’ll be wandering minstrels in the walled gardens, a soundscape of harpsichords playing from rooms all around the house and Killing Joke’s Youth teaching drawing while he DJs

Plus you can take part in ukulele and harmonica lessons under the apple trees and dancing lessons on the lawn.

Fenton House will truly become a fantastical Idler’s paradise for the weekend. Read more and buy tickets here.
