Bearded Theory is a creative and performing arts family festival hosted in the heart of England at the picturesque Catton Park on the West Midlands and Staffordshire border. Hosted over 4 days, with a line up unrivalled against the ticket price and still allowing your own drinks into the arena, Bearded Theory remains the best value independent festival in the country. Bearded Theory remains independent and the organisers remain unsalaried and work fulltime. This means they can deliver the best festival experience possible against the ticket price.
The festival has set up home at Catton Park where the festival showcases 5 stages including a Woodland Stage celebrating the National Forest location, a dance arena, huge outdoor Main Stage and all with cutting edge production. The festival is hosted over Spring Bank Holiday 21st – 24th May 2015.

An iconic year in the making...
2015 is set to be an iconic year for Bearded Theory. As well as the eclectic range of music on show there is, amongst other things; a teen area run by the Drop Inn, the amazing Children’s Village, more site art by the wonderful Labyrinth Arts and finally Groovie Movie Solar Cinema will be making an appearance. These changes along with bringing back the old favourites such as the real ale bars operated by award winning brewery Thornbridge, allowing own drinks into the arena, the magical Woodland Stage, Disco Shed, Open Mic Tea Tent, Magical Sounds, Victorian Circus, Healing & Earth Area, wandering weirdness all mean 2015 is on course to be our best festival yet.
If you've not come across it yet it's a really cool, family-friendly music fest which has won prestigious awards (UK’s Best Small Festival / Promoter of the Year), plus it’s great value for money and goers can even bring their own booze. They always ensure there’s plenty to do - among the many events this year there are appearances from Derby County football team and even Mr. Motivator. The festival are brewing their own beer for the occasion too and it just wouldn’t be Bearded Theory if they didn’t attempt the Guinness World Record for most number of beards worn in one place at one time – a special tradition for 8 years running now.
Acts on the line-up this year include The Buzzcocks, James, Alabama 3, British Sea Power, Cara Dillon, The Beat, Afro Celt Soundsystem, The Mission, New Model Army and loads more, + their dance tent is unrivalled.
