Hatfield festival to offer folk and football by the oak?

A Hatfield music festival is promising to add Harry Kane and his pals to the lineup if England get through to the final.
The organisers of Folk by the Oak festival at Hatfield House tweeted today (July 11): “IF England make the final, we’ll provide an area/screen for our ticket holders to enjoy the game, in walking distance of the festival arena but carefully situated to not affect the music and atmosphere for the rest of our audience.”
The festival takes place on Sunday, July 15, the same day as the World Cup final.
A statement on the website added that the small site and “sublime” musical lineup for the festival this weekend means they won’t be showing the match in the festival arena itself, but in a separate area.
They noted that if England lose against Croatia this evening (impossible, surely), there won’t be a football screening of the final on Sunday - but fans will have the perfect way to forget their woes in the capable hands of artists including Billy Bragg and Amy Macdonald.
Diehard football fans who have gone to watch the final elsewhere will be welcomed back at the festival afterwards.
