To celebrate these milestones they are hosting #EngageWithTools, a special one-off event with live music, and craft workshops happening at Broome Farm, Peterstow, Ross-On-Wye on Friday 31st July and Saturday 1st August 2015.


Friday: Ben Huws, Pure Evil, Suzy Condrad, Subduction, and headliner Merv Pepler (Eatstatic).

Saturday: Gareth Thomas, Tequila Mockingbird, Big Sky, BBC Acoustic Band, Slippery Slope, Boyd Clack & Kirsten Jones, Posh Frock & Beatbox, Boyd Clack auction, Head Gardeners, Pete “Mixmaster” Morris, and headliners Dub Pistols.

In the Old Orchard there will be acoustic artists performing, and other traditional craft based activities which include workshops and demonstrations of blacksmithing, coppersmithing, greenwoodworking, and DJ workshops. Or even have a go at up-cycling inner tubes into clothing.
