Bigger, noisier and better than ever - Briggstock acoustic festival is back and full details have been announced for the celebration of music in and around Brigg Market Place this weekend.

The main stage will be located there on Saturday, August 31, but busking stations will be positioned throughout the town from Bridge Street, through Wrawby Street and the old attractive courtyards.

A map will be available from the Brigg Tourist Information Office and on the Briggstock stall for any visitors.

“The day is packed with over 13 local and regional bands performing a vibrant mix of acoustic music which will appeal to everyone; Brigg is a must for all contemporary music lovers,” said Malcolm Bailey, events organiser, Brigg Town Business Partnership.
