Welcome to the Barrow and Flax Festival 2019! 

To reignite the flame of the former Barrow Gurney festival, we have put together a fabulous and varied programme of events for all the family. 

From the high-brow to the low-brow – opera to music hall and poetry to comedy – and a huge dollop of fine food and local fare, we hope our festival will have something for everyone of all ages and tastes.

Something for everyone


Food & drink

There’s a live cookery demonstration by the Masterchef finalist Tony Rodd, pre-performance meals at local village gastro-pubs and a festival feast catered by renowned local bistro Wilsons.


Music treats kick-off with family-funk mayhem from Kid Carpet, moving on to world renown ukulele maestro Andy Eastwood. It all culminates with a glittering opera gala, in the beautiful Barrow Church.
