Overground Underground Festival
The Overground Underground Festival (known affectionately as OGUG) was started in 2011 by a small group of volunteers passionate about the local landscape around Ingleborough. The Festival has grown organically with local communities and individuals working together to put on a diverse range of events.
What is the OGUG area?
For the first few years the Festival was focussed on Ingleton and its immediate area and it ran over a weekend in May. Since becoming part of Stories in Stone, the Festival now covers much of the scheme area and runs from May to September. This has enabled it to extend the range and number of events and increase participation.
What’s all the excitement about?
OGUG provides annual programmes of events and activities delivered by a range of providers to enable people to discover the natural and cultural heritage of the Ingleborough Dales area, as well as its recreational opportunities. This includes walks, talks, exhibitions, films, sporting tasters, exercise activities, arts workshops, demonstrations, competitions, and more. The Festival is aimed at residents and visitors of all ages and abilities.
The project has been developed in consultation with event providers, volunteers, participants, supporters, visitors, local businesses, Craven District Council, Ingleton Parish Council, and the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust.
