The Ham – Main Concert Stage

The centrepiece for concerts at the festival, The Ham is close to Port Royal at the eastern end of the Esplanade. The Ham provides a comfortable seated-venue for three first class concerts each day – lunchtime, afternoon and evening. Most concerts feature a headline act playing 60-90 minutes plus a support act playing 30-40 minutes before an interval. This year The Ham will have increased ventilation to ensure the comfort of all.

There’s a well stocked Foyer Bar and dedicated toilets for concert patrons including disabled facilities. Outside the venue you’ll find the Ham Lawn which hosts the Festival Merchandise and artists’ cd stall. Circling the lawn you’ll find a range of tasty food and drink outlets. There is also undercover seating and a bar area with picnic benches. A great area to soak up the festival atmosphere!

An All-In-One gives you access to all events and workshops for the whole festival. You can also get to the two Pre-Festival concerts at seriously reduced prices.

Week, Weekend and Day season tickets give access to all events except the Ham Evening concerts for the period of your ticket. Season tickets give considerable discounts for Ham Evening concerts.
