Music and arts at Alchemy Festival

What's on.
What's on.

The much-anticipated annual Alchemy Festival returns on Friday - bringing three days of live music and arts to Lincolnshire.

From rock fans and New Agers to families and art-lovers - there really is something for everyone at the festival - held at a wildlife site off Kirky Lane, Coningsby.

The event is deliberately held at a time of the year close to the autumn equinox as organisers say this ‘fits with the ethos of Alchemy’.

Since the first Alchemy Festival was held in 2009, the event has gained a reputation for offering a traditional festival vibe - harking back to events as far back as medieval times. Activities and displays on offer include fire shows, circus performers, walkabout entertainers and a wide range of arts workshops for all ages.

There are now eight stages in total, at least one being solar powered and another pedal-powered, which play host to more than 100 bands and DJs. The show kicks off on Friday with the first band taking to the stage around 5.15pm.

There is a licensed bar but people can bring their own drinks. However, glass is not allowed onto the camp site.

Ticket prices vary but cost £90 per adults for the full weekend (£20 children aged five-15) with under fives going free. There are additional prices for family tickets, dog tickets and camper van tickets.
