About this event:
Priston Festival was formed as a charitable society by a group of local people in 2008. The aim was to create an annual community festival which would allow a celebration of local music and artistic talent – hence our slogan “Live ‘n’ Local”!
Many of the acts who perform are from the nearby cities of Bristol and Bath – both renowned for their music scenes. Then there is also a smaller number of nationally-renowned acts from further afield
This is an event which has a broad range of music. Previous festivals have included folk, jazz, blues, rock, world, reggae, choral and classical music. They also provide singing and dancing workshops, film, and literary events as well as children’s art activities.
The main venue is the Village Green Stage outside the Ring O Bells pub. There is also a smaller Chill Stage in the Village Hall car park. These are where the majority of the acts on show perform, and they are free to view. There is also stage music, film and literature in the beautiful parish church, the village pub, and the old village hall with its newly-refurbished car park.
