Big plans for the Hole in the Wall


First of all, thanks to the many of our regular ‘Hole in the Waller’s’ who have given us support for this event. Without you it wouldn’t happen!

The good news is that although the HIW will not take place in 2015 we will be back in 2016.

In order to guarantee the future of this event at Hopton Court, I have now found a partner, with huge experience in the world of show business, and event management.

We will be working together to keep this event going.  There are big plans for the HIW and it is not going to be possible to get it up and running for 2015.  It is ambitious and because of the amount of work that has to be done we will have to skip a year and we will be back big time in 2016.

As and when plans evolve we will be contacting you so please keep an eye on this website and our emails. If you are not on our data base and want to be, email info@holeinthewallfestival.co.uk and put ‘add me’ in the subject line.

Don’t forget,

Keep on rocking, and roll on 2016!

Hole in the Wall Music Festival 2014

Tucked away in the South Shropshire countryside, on the Shropshire Worcestershire border, with easy access from the West Midlands, the Hole in the Wall is a truly unique music festival held in the stunning grounds of Hopton Court. Top quality bands are welcomed each year to perform and the line-up is always ‘quality’.

Imagine yourself in a 19th-century walled garden. You are sitting in fantastic surroundings having a picnic, either your own or with the amazing food and drink on offer on site. You may have just come for the day or you may take another glass of wine or real ale because you are camping only a stone’s throw away in the next field.

The sun is setting and perhaps to complete the magic some good music would be just the thing to take you into the evening. You are most definitely in the right place!

This has been the long-term dream of owner Chris Woodward and fifteen years ago he turned this dream into a reality. It has grown from showcasing local talent to 60’s icons and top ‘Tribute’ bands.

This is a very very special event. People come, bring a picnic, set up camp, revel and relax and then go again - that’s it. The atmosphere is vibrant but not manic. This is the philosophy of Hole in the Wall. Love life, love music and whether it’s for the whole weekend or just an evening, you can leave your stress behind at the gate and enjoy the sheer magic in the Hole in the Wall garden.

Consider this a personal invitation.
