THE budget for all aspects of this year’s Victorious Festival have ‘doubled’ and extra efforts are being specifically put into revamping entertainment for children.
Shows geared towards youngsters will take place all day over the Saturday and Sunday as opposed to sporadically before.
The overall quality of the children’s acts is also being improved.
The bandstand area will this time round be transformed into an ‘acoustic village’ showcasing some of the UK’s brightest up and coming talent.
The real ale and cider tent will also make a return.
