After last-minute Covid safety restrictions meant 2020’s Woodzstock music festival did not go ahead, co-organiser Charlie Stewart described last Saturday’s return as “miraculous”.

The third music festival at the Wildwoodz paintballing site near Tore – later than its usual June date – was lucky falling on a perfect summer’s day.

Afterwards, Charlie – who with her partner Dave Elliott organises the one-day event – said: “This one was two years in the making and I can’t believe it’s over! I only managed to hear the last two acts, but everyone was up dancing.”

The original 250 capacity was extended and 100 more were added, of which 60 were children.

Charlie said: “We’ve decided to cap it at 60 for next year to keep it child-friendly without it becoming a children’s festival.”

Tickets for June 18 2022 will go on sale on Friday.

Making the most of the darker August skies, Charlie and Dave lit up the trees behind the stage.

“It made it atmospheric for Colonel Mustard and Esperanza,” Charlie added.
