Past Festivals

So, here it is – an almost complete list of past Clarence participants. This doesn’t include fringe gigs or Battle-Of-The-Bands style competitions (where they occurred). You might also want to take a look at the almost-complete history of Wakefield Music Collective. Thanks go to Tony and Mick for filling in the gaps!

Some years were larger than others owing to prevailing conditions such as funding, sponsorship and security. If you think your company can help us out with sponsorship (either monetary or in-kind) then please get in touch immediately!

You can find details of this year’s festival over here.
