Last Train Home Festival

A new multi-venue music & comedy festival is coming to Darlington

In celebration of Darlington's rich railway heritage, as well as the burgeoning musical culture of the area, we've put together a whole day of delights, taking place in spaces surrounding Banktop train station, which will showcase a plethora of touring, regional and local talent, wrapping up just in time to catch the Last Train Home.

With support from Arts Council England & Creative Darlington, as well as partnership with NARC. Magazine & Hilarity Bites, we've assembled 47 artists spanning 6 stages, all accessible with a single wristband so you can wander at will, enjoy some great acts you know, and discover some you don't.
