Then we'll see the familiar sight of Liam Merriman and Eoin O'Meachair with a completely new show. These guys are a very important part of our festivals as they not only play on the main stage but spend the whole weekend touring around the area ,taking the festival out to venues where residents for a number of reasons can't get to the golf club. This is completely consistent with our community work and Liam and Eoin are simply brilliant at the way they perform these shows.
Next up - and we're over the moon with this - singer-songwriter and folk music icon the one and only Steve Tilston. There's simply not enough room here to describe this man - but its suffice to say that when Al Pacino plays you in a movie, well need we say more . . .
And if that's not enough, well how about this?Don't go breaking our hearts but yes we have an absolute superstar headlining our first night. We've only managed to book the sensational Kiki Dee! This is going to be an immense occasion but be warned Kiki will sell tickets rapidly so make sure you get them early.
Saturday (we just won't let them rest) we have Liam and Eoin kicking things off before we see the return of the ever popular Nick Hall. Unfortunately Michelle is away playing in Germany but don't get too worried . . .
And following last year's festival we goy many requests to bring back two incredibly popular acts. Following the food break we'll have the super talent of Anthony John Clarke taking the stage. Yes the Cropredy compere is back and this year we'll see if our headline act remembers to tell the joke AJ teaches him.
Because our headliners (and this is just brilliant) are the absolutely colossal Dave Bainbridge and Sally Minnear. They were utterly amazing in 2017 and it's a real treat to get them back.
So on to Sunday. And first up we have previously nominated for young folk musician of the year Sunjay. He's coming up from the Midlands to play for us and travelling even further we have the absolutely angelic Danielle Lewis to follow.
We said you wouldn't be disappointed because flying straight in from Germany we'll see Michelle Plum teaming up with Nick for a full on performance of Plumhall!
Before we draw things to a close with the sheer madness and brilliance of multi award winning Merry Hell!
It's an incredible line up this year so get your tickets quickly.
Prices are £19.50 per person each night (includes hot supper as normal) or a weekend deal at just £50.00.

The Holywell Music Festival is a small community event held over 3 evenings dedicated to promoting high quality live music, while supporting the campaign to save The Holywell Inn, a pub that has stood at the centre of our village for almost 200 years.
Held in the Club House at Bradley Hall Golf Club, the weekend will bring a wealth of talent, some 'old hand' musicians, and some that are just breaking onto the music scene.
Some welcome comments from 2015's event...
