The CornShed, an annual festival held in Hutton Rudby, returns for its final farewell after its 30 year stint, on Friday, June 24, and Saturday, June 25, all in aid of GNAAS.

The festival is organised by Judy Kitching MBE in memory of her late husband Jim who died after an accident on the family farm, aged 38.

Ms Kitching, said: “Preparations for this year’s festival are going very well. I have been working on the planning across the year.

“The tickets are now on sale and it is good to see that there has been a big demand already.”

The festival boasts three music stages including the main stage, second stage and an acoustic marquee featuring  more gentle music.

Food and merchandise is available on site and this year, for the 30th anniversary, there will be a photo gallery displaying photos from the previous events.

Ms Kitching said: “This year’s CornShed festival will be the last.”

She added: “The time is right for the festival to come to an end. It’s good to finish on a round number.

“It costs a lot more now to put on and a lot more to time organise, so the 30th year is a good year to end.”

On September 3, a beer festival will be held at the CornShed festival site also raising money for GNAAS.
