BUT IS IT COUNTRY?

The Festival has a theme “Serious About Having A Good Time” and “But Is It Country?” takes it to another level. 2 teams of conservative, eccentric and obsessive personalities compete to be Country Music Gurus. Hosted by the Festival Director, the show is a mix of multiple choice, name that tune, true and false and guesstimates - so this is a live panel show not to be missed. And with audience participation at times encouraged you can be sure to have fun and many laughs! More details ....

TEAMS CHALLENGE
