Fans of fun fancy dress might be interested to hear that tickets have now gone on sale for the Nozstock Festival 2011.

Now in its 13th year, the event will be held at Rowden Paddocks in Bromyard, Herefordshire on July 29th and 30th.

Farmer and organiser Pete Noz said there is always something to suit everyone at the festival, with those who don't like to rough it catered for by boutique camping in bell tents, as well as proper showers.

He explained that the theme for this year's costumes should be 'Twisted Carnival' , meaning everyone in attendance should look really bright and lively.

"Nozstock is well-known for its unique atmosphere and handmade vibe; that won't change but there's more colour, more to do and more walkabout performance," Pete added.

Last year's line-up included The Blockheads with Phill Jupitus and The King Blues, so it may be well worth going along.

Why not wear a twisted jester fancy dress outfit to evoke the weird carnival theme?
