Music lovers come to the village of Bromyard

The small town of Bromyard in Herefordshire is one which is quite different to any other seen in the country. It may be a very small former market town, embracing the quiet sort of lifestyle that residents who move to the town would be likely to expect, but it also has a different side to it, sure to attract people looking for property for sale in Bromyard.

Over the summer, the normally quiet little town turns into a haven of live music and performing arts, as people come from all over the country to perform their arts in the town to the thousands of people who will visit to join in with festivities across a number of event.

The town of Bromyard itself is very small. Located near Leominster and Worcester (thus giving ample opportunity for shopping and grocery for those who want to live in a small town), it comprises of only around 5,000 residents, making it a very quiet and down to earth sort of town where people can enjoy living in relative peace and quiet.

But it is its summer programme which makes it stand out from the rest of the small towns around the country more than anything else.

Bromyard is the site of the annual three-day folk festival which takes place in the town. It is one of the biggest festivals of its kind in the country, and welcomes many revellers as well as some of the best acoustic acts in the area.

Last year, the town also hosted its first successful jazz festival, which could take place again in 2012, after it was run in the town's Falcon Hotel.

However, its biggest claim to fame lies with the yearly hosting of the Nozstock Festival. This particular event attracts around 3,000 visitors to the town every year, bringing in revellers who can enjoy 30 live bands, a circus, various other events, and a vintage tractor arena.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801261705-ADNFCR
