AT E@SE is the Armed Forces T-Shirt Day summer music and camping festival, taking place in the heart of the stunning Worcestershire countryside from Friday 30th August to Sunday 1st September. 

Our host site this year is the Spilsbury & Jones Brewing Company at Orleton Court Farm Campsite, a beautiful venue set amongst orchards and hop fields, bordering the river Teme and with its own fishing lake. Fishing, wild swimming and canoe launches are all on offer. If you're staying on the farm, then wild camping spots for tents and campervans are available amongst the orchards, around the lakes, or next to the river.

The brewery's Taphouse is on site to serve you excellent beers and ciders from the local hops and orchards and there's also a wood-fired oven serving the best pizza in the Teme Valley! If cooking your own meal over an open fire is more your thing, then you'll be pleased to hear that fire pits are allowed, or can be hired. The site only asks that all firewood is purchased from the farm.

Unique to the AT E@SE festival, the Taphouse is also where the live stage will host a range of amazing UK bands on Saturday night, all from armed forces backgrounds. So feel AT E@SE, eat great pizza, sample the local brews and dance the night away in support of our chosen charity, Scotty's Little Soldiers! 

UPDATE! We are pleased to announce that there will be additional live bands from military backgrounds performing for you on the first night of the festival, Friday 30th August. Find more details below...

Armed Forces T-Shirt Day and the AT E@SE festival are raising money through your event tickets, t-shirt sales and kind donations in support of Scotty's Little Soldiers this year. Every AT E@SE ticket sold donates the profits to their amazing charity and helps them to ensure the very best bereavement support remains available.

AT E@SE is a family-friendly festival and children and well-behaved dogs are welcome. We have a range of extra activities on site to keep everyone entertained and the children busy, and we're also offering pitches for some military themed stalls to offer you their wares. 

Because this is a small family festival, tickets will be limited, so order yours from the link at the bottom of this page as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!

All of the  groups performing live at the AT E@SE music festival include band members from an armed forces background, making us the only UK music festival to offer this!

The five Saturday bands in order of appearance through the day and into the evening are...

A fabulous folksy duo who play wicked soulful country and rock covers and some of their own songs too. From Johnny Cash to Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young to Cat Stevens, their range is fantastic and you'll find it next to impossible to stop your toes tapping their way onto the dance floor as they get the festival on its feet!

Laurel Canyon, two of whom are veterans, cover the grooviness of the 60s with four-part harmonies of Laurel Canyon classics from The Mamas and Papas, The Beach Boys, The Byrds, The Monkees and more, plus covers of bands influenced by the Canyon sound such as Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, The Small Faces and The Hollies. More than a groovy foursome, Laurel Canyon bring the full power of flower - parading 60s fashions and regaling Canyon stories.

This talented acoustic duo from Plymouth play old school mod and 90s Britpop classics with no backing tracks and sound all the better for it! Mods Unplugged seamlessly blends the nostalgia of mod classics with the brilliance of Britpop, creating a sonic tapestry that transcends generations, paying homage to the greats while infusing their own unique style.

Upbeat duo Make Mine a Double perform an eclectic mix of covers from the sixties right up to modern chart toppers - The Beatles to Green Day, Jon Denver to Bon Jovi! Their cheerful, sunny delivery and stunning complimentary vocal styles are a perfect match for the AT E@SE festival vibe and their energetic buzz is guaranteed to get you up on your feet! Check out their fantastic video medley and we're sure you'll agree!

Don't worry, we haven't forgotten our rock fans - SIlverback bring the noise with high energy, upbeat rock covers of your favourite tracks from the nineties and naughties. From Foo Fighters to Oasis, Greenday to The Arctic Monkeys, The Darkness and Blur, these guys are hard-rocking crowd pleasers from start to finish!

If you're here for the full weekend, then don't worry, you won't have to wait for Saturday night to get the party started! We've added two more awesome bands from military backgrounds to our weekend lineup and these will kick things off on Friday night with a rousing round of classic covers from The Follicles followed by This or a Harley.

Describing themselves as a guitar, percussion & magical vocal acoustic duo that play great tunes old and present, The Follicles will open Friday night by belting out some classics!

This lively cover band features AFTD Founder and AT E@SE festival organiser Rob Greaves as one of the lead singers and will follow The Follicles on Friday night!

To keep your family entertained during the festival we are offering a wide range of activities around the main musical events - fascinating talks by veteran guest speakers, learning outdoor skills, camo face painting and kit trials, a bounce on our castle, canoeing and paddleboarding (own equipment required), military stalls to browse, country walks and brewery visits. There's even a duck race on Sunday morning if you're up! We want you to have a relaxing time while AT E@SE, but there's also plenty on offer for you and the kids.

If you don't want to cook at your tent, or over a firepit, we have you covered, with Spilsbury & Jones providing gourmet wood-fired pizzas and their own craft lagers and beers on site!

The camping area is spread over a cider orchard, damson orchard, river meadow and a sheltered grass field overlooking the Teme valley and the hop yard. There is a toilet and shower block as well as additional flushing toilets at the riverground, plus a couple of washing stations within easy walk of the pitches, all with fresh running water. 

The site believes in the ethos of wild camping and doesn't have set pitches, enabling guests to chose where they want to camp - whether it be by the river, a stone's throw from the bar, or near to the fishing lake. 

The site has two carp pools and river fishing, which is free of charge to guests. The campsite is dog-friendly with plenty of walks nearby. A fabulous farm shop, cafe, garden centre and rural retail village ‘The Mill Farm’ are within a mile walk. The River Teme is an ideal spot for paddleboarding, kayaking, canoeing, wild swimming, or for having a simple paddle to cool down.

There are designated firepit areas and firepits can be hired if you don’t own one. The site just ask that you buy their firewood. Set communal areas provide an ideal space to sit round a campfire enjoying the sunset or stargazing. 

Camping at Orleton Court Farm can be booked from the tickets section at the bottom of this page.
