August Bank Holiday weekend in 2010 saw the inaugural running of Crastonbury, a free to the public music festival held in the grounds of the Craster Arms Hotel in Beadnell, Northumberland. The event was such a success that it was immediately decided that it would become an annual event showcasing the best of local and national musical entertainment.

The Craster Arms regularly hosts live music and an array of different kinds of entertainment, and with music enthusiast pub landlord Michael Dawson keen to provide something new, exciting and of a larger scale to the area than anything previously attempted, Crastonbury was born. Thanks to an enormous amount of effort from staff and any friends who could lend a hand the show was a night to remember.
The event was co organised by James Cummings, who provides the photos and live recordings you can find below - re live the fun and get ready for next year!
Integral to the event was James Cummings, who helped plan and organise the music and acts.
