MUSIC, comedy and more awaited revellers at the Larmer Tree Festival which returned last night.

The music line-up is headlined by Kate Tempest, Jack Savoretti, The Cat Empire, The Shires, Gomez and KT Tunstall, with support across four stages all weekend.

The ever-popular Village Inn will return, boasting the best in local music talent, and you’ll even be able to dance the night away in the silent disco, tucked away in The Wilds.

For comedy, Nish Kumar and Josie Long will be headlining the Peacock Palace stage.

Kate Adie will be discussing her life and career in conversation with Richard Osgood, and BBC Radio 4 will be on-site with a live recording of their popular discussion show, Four Thought.

We’ll be asking Do We Need to Read the Classics? in a fascinating author debate, and Masterchef semi-finalist Alex Talbot will be telling her inspirational story.

Kids will be spoilt for choice, with CBeebies star Andy Day making his Larmer Tree debut alongside his band Andy and the Odd Socks, plus their very own Comedy Club 4 Kids.

Older children can discover their wild side with Dorset Rewilding workshops, and even the littlest Larmers will be well looked after in the Peachick Play Area.

The Larmer Tree Cinema is the perfect place for families to unwind in the mornings, with a selection of classic films on offer (or you could brave some late-night horror after the sun goes down!)

Plus the popular Larmer Tree Carnival will return on Sunday, with opportunities to take part and rustle up your own carnival creations across the weekend.

For those who fancy some pampering, the Larmer Lawns will host Sauna Bay Hot Tubs, bookable in advance online or on-site.

Nestled alongside the spa will be a wide array of therapies waiting to be discovered, where visitors can take a break from the action and indulge their body and senses with a relaxing massage, gong bath or reiki session, with 32 different replenishing treatments on offer.

There’s something for even foodies to enjoy on-site, with the return of some favourite Larmer Tree eateries alongside some tempting new additions.

With everything from traditional fish and chips, wood-fired pizzas, homemade pies, Goan curries and much more, you’ll be able to go on a worldwide culinary adventure without leaving the gardens.

And providing some much-needed refreshment, Bristol Beer Factory and 6 O’clock Gin will both be making a welcome return, alongside luxurious hot drinks and smoothies to get you going in the morning.

Every year hundreds of revellers take part in Larmer Tree’s Dress-Up Saturday, and this year is set to be the most out-of-this-world theme to date. Saturday, July 20 will mark exactly 50 years since mankind first landed on the moon, so expect to see the gardens filled with plenty of intergalactic activity, as aliens party alongside astronauts in one astronomical space-themed Saturday night party.

Plus, there is so much to discover across the weekend, from art installations to roaming theatre, the new Arts and Craft Pavilion, Village Green games, twilight workshops, pop-up museum sessions and much much more.
