Black Horse Festival 2007

Tickets are now available for the Black Horse Music Festival, which this year will feature more than 30 acts of the calibre of Wilko Johnson, The Blockheads, Osibisa, Martin Carthy and Peter Gabriel protégé Daby Toure.

From Friday May 25 to Monday May 28 the festival, now in its 19th year, will be held in the grounds of the Shepherd Neame pub the Black Horse in Telham, East Sussex.

For the first time, the festival is launching "The Club in the Pub", which will return to the event's folk roots and give floor singers the chance to perform inside the bar.

Outside, there's a bar run by landlord John Wilson, selling beer from event sponsors Shepherd Neame, a barbecue and family entertainment, including jugglers, Punch and Judy, stilt-walkers, face-painting and balloon sculptures.

The festival starts on the Friday with an evening of urban sounds from Ian Dury's Blockheads and The Wilko Johnson Band, while the Saturday is dedicated to folk, with performances from headliners Waterson:Carthy, The Fold, Waking the Witch and many others.

Sunday is a day of world music, headlined by Peter Gabriel's favourites The Daby Toure Band, supported by African hi-life outfit Osibisa, roots legends Baka Beyond, Boum, from France and leTrio Perdu from Belgium.

The festival closes on Bank Holiday Monday with an afternoon of indie rock from some of the South East's most talented new bands and an evening party featuring the Cadillac Kings and a big soul band.

Tickets are £12 for Friday; £16 for Saturday; £18 for Sunday; £5 for the Monday afternoon; and £8 for Monday evening, available from or from Hastings Tourist Information Centre on 01424 781111. Floor singers wishing to do a spot should call festival organiser John Shotton on 01424 429840.
