16.6.17 - A few changes are to be made in the entertainments section due to unforeseen circumstances. Magic Mike is not available to attend the festival but he is to be replaced by Ryan Swain and Mr.Flannings on the Saturday. Sunday afternoon the 'Mad Man of Magic' will be taking Mikes shows. Punch and Judy are still headlining on the Saturday afternoon in the kids marquee.
The Northern Soul group have backed out and will not be attending, which is disappointing but it is their decision. On a plus side Scarborough Hockey Squad are planning on attending to do exhibits and 'come and have a go' sessions on the Saturday.
10.6.17 - The field has been cut twice and is looking a picture. The long range weather forecast is very favourable so with a bit of luck we will be in for a cracking weekend!
8.6.17 - Redgate garage are sponsoring the Marquee stage this year and we thank Chris and his team for their support. Redgate Garage is well respected in the area, based at Flixton this young team have built up a good reputation for servicing , repairs and come highly recommended by alot of the Staxtonbury team.
As promised we are holding a fun fashion show in the acoustic marquee 10am on Saturday 8th July 2017. This will be organised by the lovely Emma Teasdale with the assistance of some of her friends.
The idea of the show will be for any small businesses to come along for a few hours on the Saturday to exhibit some of their products within the show and then if they wish to, have a small stall in the arena on the afternoon for a few hours. A reduced rate for this will be allowed for bona fide exhibitors and limited dummies and models will be available. We have realised in the past that it is difficult for such small, mostly up and coming businesses, have trouble running a stall in the open air all weekend, which they have tried admirably in the past.
Anyone who wishes to take part should contact Emma on 07709124521 or email@example.com. This should be done asap as we already have some exhibitors and places will have to be limited on a first come basis.
22.5.17 - Good meeting tonight at The Mayfield in Seamer. Good turn out by the sound and lighting men. Good to see them and their plans, drawings and ipads. We guarantee it is going to be a heck of a show this year.
21.5.17 - The Jackdaws (from Driffield/Beverley) have agreed to step in to the slot vacated by The Groove Ninjas after they decided to part company.

Sadly through the terms of his new contract he will not be able to make an appearance at this years festival , nevertheless we wish him all the best for the future and hope that he can give us a guest performance in years to come.. Tyler has been a pleasure to work with over these last few years and depicts what we are about in encouraging local artists to reach their true potential and give them the confidence to shine after appearing on a big stage in front of a big audience.

4.1.17 - Congratulations to Tyler Smith from Filey on his forthcoming appearance on the new Gary Barlow programme this Saturday on BBC1 after appearing at Staxtonbury for the past 4 years, both with his band and singing solo. It would be great for him to show the nation how good he really is. Tyler has been performing and studying in London over the past few years and it would be brilliant to see him go all the way in this programme. He is a cracking lad and maybe the final Rule The World sing-a-long he does with Jez each year will stand him in good stead.
