Join us on Friday 5th May for an exclusive Isle of Wight Festival 2017 Preview night!

We’ve got live music from four of the acts that will be gracing the stage at this year’s event, including; Bang Bang Romeo, Xockha, Polly and the Worm and Doug Alldred.

In addition to a night of live music, we will also be launching a summer long exhibition of photos and memorabilia, from the legendary Isle of Wight Festivals 68-70 & 2002 to the present day. This exhibition is being curated by Dimbola Lodge, who host a permanent Isle of Wight Festival exhibition at their museum in Freshwater Bay that includes a lifesize statue of Jimi Hendrix!

The Cow Co will be setting up a festival-style takeout window from their kitchen, supplying delicious burgers and more throughout the evening to the hungry revellers.

The iconic 1970s Isle of Wight Festival took place just 800 metres from The Cow Co at East Afton, which is also part of Tapnell Farm – so we will be channeling our inner hippie for one night only, as we get into the festival spirit!

This event is FREE Entry, but spaces are strictly limited. We are therefore opening up a guest list, on which you can secure a place by purchasing a £5 token – this is redeemable on the night against food or drink.

Make sure you’re included on the Guest List by grabbing your tokens in advance - please visit our website to book directly.
