Jam-packed UnstFest begins

UnstFest 2018 is well under way with a jam-packed calendar of events for this, the festival’s tenth year.

Plenty of youngsters headed out onto the water on Saturday for the yoal regatta with many taking up the chance to sail like a Viking aboard the Dim Riv.

Hungry visitors and rowers enjoyed burgers and candyfloss with rock and roll and country numbers served up by David Sandison & The Tennessee Wannabees at Haroldswick Hall.

An insight into traditional Viking culture with demonstrations and games is planned on Sunday at the Viking longhouse at Brookpoint.

Pool parties, a raft race, guided walks, flamenco classes, a half marathon and an array of live music are packed into the busy schedule.

UnstFest runs from 14th to 22nd of July.
