A SOMERSET festival has announced an early-bird ticket release ahead of the 2020 event.

Farmfest is set to take place at Gilcombe Farm, Bruton, across the weekend of July 24 and 25.

And a limited number of early-bird tickets, priced at £70 per adult for the weekend, go on sale on January 31.

Now in its 14th year, organisers say the 5,000-capacity festival is 'one of the most unique and inclusive small-scale festivals in the UK'.

"With its pocket-sized footprint, you’re never too far from the action or from your tent," a spokesperson said.

"The festival’s capacity is consciously capped at 5000 to keep the atmosphere exciting yet intimate."

"Throughout the weekend you’ll find everything from comedy to early morning yoga and the famous Kids’ Kingdom, which is packed with creative activities and workshops all weekend, making it unmissable for families."
