BAAM is a not-for-profit organisation, run by volunteers, dedicated to promoting and creating arts and music events in the Bude area, Cornwall. Our main annual event since 2014 is a summer festival.  Our festival in June last year was a fantastic success. Over 2000 people visited the site over the weekend, and enjoyed the arts, music, performance and craft market.

This year we are preparing to do it all again over the weekend of 1st – 3rd July in the grounds of Bude Castle. This time we are determined to make the festival even bigger, better and more successful. We are busy planning a line up of entertainment throughout the weekend full of amazing performers, incredible musicians, engaging entertainers and a fantastic food area.
