Another First Class collection of artists will be pulling into the platform on Saturday 7th September 

Darlington music collective Tracks have donned their conductor’s hats once again to put together Last Train Home Music & Comedy Festival, which this year will feature 7 stages, and see over 50 artists fill venues surrounding the train station with amazing talent. The Forum is excited to be one of the festival venues for this year’s Last Train Home Festival.

The idea for the festival sprang from the oft-quipped remark that people always miss headliners at local festivals, or don’t go at all, down to the fact they have to catch an early train back. So why not create a festival which not only celebrates the rich railway heritage of Darlington and the quality of its transport links, but has the event finish early enough that everyone can enjoy the full day and catch, you guessed it…. The Last Train Home.

This will be the second year for the festival, with last year’s bringing artists from all over the UK to Darlington, some from as far afield as Glasgow & Southampton, and plenty closer to home.
It created a real melting pot of emerging and established talent, and offering a broad range of live music and comedy which festival-goers welcomed with smiling faces and open arms.

The festival comes to you with kind support from Arts Council England & Creative Darlington, and is curated in partnership with NARC. MagazineLegitimate Anarchy Records & Hilarity Bites Comedy Club
