Line Up

Blackwood Productions is proud to unveil the Black Tor Gathering!

For those of you who have attended either of the Blackwood Gathering events, you'll know that we like to stage our events at unique and atmospheric places.

In stark contrast to the verdant beauty of the Cumbrian woods at Fell Foot, the Black Tor Gathering will take place at the infamous Tan Hill Inn, situated atop the Yorkshire Dales. The Tan Hill Inn is the highest pub in Britain, completely isolated yet with beautiful breath taking views from high up on the dales and down over North Yorkshire.

In Tan Hill Inn’s very own words:-

On a lonely hill high in the Yorkshire Dales, stands a unique and historic Inn dating back to the 17th century with its exposed beams, stone-flagged floor and welcoming fire. The World Famous Tan Hill Inn is Britain’s highest public house at 1,732 feet (528m) above sea level. Situated in Swaledale, just near Keld, the highest Inn in Great Britain is a warm meeting place known internationally, where walkers and cyclists brush shoulders with bohemian like-minded individuals. You’re likely to converse with people from the arts, music, film and theatre, and possibly a sprinkling of celebrity, as well as sports minded people who have made their way up to the “Top Pub”. All set against the back-drop of the most stunning scenery to be found in the UK. You’re all very welcome at The World Famous Tan Hill Inn.In this ideal setting for a unique and atmospheric event we will bring to you some of Britain’s finest talent from the vast pool of established and growing artists within the underground black metal and dark music scenes.Wild moorland camping is available via Tan Hill when you book your tickets along with drinks and food offers.

Confirmed bands so far:

Hailing from Darlington in the north east, these weary travellers will bring their fiery brand of black metal fused with dark folk delivering tales from Britain’s deepest darkest folklore and legends.

Ritualistic black metal art from Cumbria and no stranger to our events. This is a great opportunity to see a rare and atmospheric performance from these Barrow boys.

Epic and raw heathen black metal from Yorkshire with members from White Medal and Sump, this Legion Blotan related band will perform their live debut, and what better a place than in the white rose county.

More bands to be confirmed soon!

There will be a selection of merchandise stalls including the mighty Mercian Storm and Legion Blotan along with our very own Blackwood Productions stall.


Quality food and beer will be on sale throughout the event. The Tan Hill Inn is a licensed premises and it is important to note that whilst your own alcohol may be consumed at your campsite, it MUST NOT be brought into the venue grounds.The Tan Hill Inn is situated in the North Yorkshire Dales National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty and I’m sure we don’t need to remind everyone to respect the land and the property. It is also worth noting that open fires are also forbidden.Tickets will be on sale soon direct from Tan Hill at the bargain price of £15 with camping available separately. We will update the event as and when we receive confirmation.
