Stonehenge Free Festival 1985

Stop the festival...whatever it takes!


Musical real life political drama


The Stonehenge Free Festival,

held at and around the summer solstice had grown into one of the biggest music festivals in Britain from it's beginnings in 1974. It became a celebration of music and various alternative cultures.

But 1985 was to be different...

Follow, 'the Peace Convoy', a group of new age travellers and musicians, the advanced party, tasked with setting up the festival site.  

This hard-hitting musical drama incorporates 'lost' ITN news footage of the real life events as they unfolded.

Prepare to be shocked by this retelling of a little-known historical event.



Suitable for Secondary/High School, Tertiary and Community groups

This is a great catalyst for discussions about politics and law.
