Whistlewood Common The Common Melbourne DE73 8DH
Now in its 6th Year the Whistlewood Music Festival grows in popularity year on year and has been established as the Glastonbury of the East Midlands, well Melbourne at least!
Local and not so local bands perform at their best, children are entertained as well with lots of activities and local food suppliers make sure everybody’s well fed and watered.
We are sorry. No dogs are allowed at the Festival unless they are assistance dogs.

Awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the Best Outdoor Experience category of the 2018 Leicestershire Tourism and Hospitality Awards, Heather Scarecrow Festival is definitely worth a visit. Bring the whole family, it won’t break the bank. In fact there is so much to see and do, it’s worth several visits. Throughout the village the gardens are dotted with scarecrows. Scores and Scores of them, some of celebs, some of them topical, many of them cheerfully daft, and all competing for the votes of the people who come for miles around to see them. Refreshments are on sale, or bring a picnic.
