Set in the sublimely picturesque Eastnor Castle Deer Park in Hereford, Lakefest prides itself on creating a hugely enjoyable, family friendly festival where music, entertainment, family activities, fairground rides and creativity collide to produce an unmeasured Festival that will capture the hearts and minds of attendees, regardless of age.
Based on the ethos of being “all inclusive and family friendly” there is a whole program of activities, music and entertainment set in the secure confines of a stunning natural valley, which is overlooked by the exquisite Eastnor Castle. For more information about this festival, please see the Lakefest website.
