  • On a bright and sunny saturday, Frederick Bannister Productions Ltd, staged a very successful concert of ‘Contemporary and Traditional Folk Music’ at Tupholme Manor Park.
  • Trains and coaches were overwhelmed with travellers attending this one-day festival. Hudson’s Bus Company and Pilgrim Tours were operating a shuttle service from Lincoln station.
  • The crowd was estimated at 60,000, by Bill Hardy, the local farmer on whose land the event was held, with visitors from as far as Australia and New Zealand.
  • Tickets for the day were £2. It was described as a very successful, trouble-free event.

  • Ralph McTell
  • Steeleye Span

  • The Byrds, who arrived late, by surprise, were going to play an acoustic set, but because of the fantastic way they went down playing electric at the previous year's Bath Festival, they again stole the show by being the only band to play an electric set, on the day.
