Here is the PRESS RELEASE from our Mates at Blues and Beer - A Wallingford Bastion cruelly cut down in it’s prime last year - Frankly we are delighted to give these fellas a platform and hope to see them restored to their pomp in years to come . They bring with them some simply amazing bands who fit the mould of our rocking Friday night perfectly - Welcome back !

Press Release follows:

Just when we thought we’d lost our mojo it’s been handed it back to us by Rugfest. Our “brothers with the strange shaped balls” are handing-off to us this amazing opportunity to relaunch a one night only Wallingford Blues & Beer Festival on Friday 21 June 2019. This is going to be an awesome partnership.

The Line Out:

Climax Blues Band - charting in the 60’s & 70’s this blues rock seven piece has many of its founding members.

Papa George Band - blues journeyman on both sides of the Atlantic and a fantastic support to The Blockheads for us back in 2014

HipRoute - blues with a groove, from Wiltshire. These dudes should have played in 2017 & it’s great they’ll make our comeback memorable.

Vincent White Band - local boys with cracking slide guitar blues.

The Pitch - a much improved offering:

unlimited tickets (not restricted to 500 as before) & children now admitted

concessions under 16 & over 65 years

Only £15 for four bands & music afterwards

extended opening from 18:00 to 01:00 hours

on site camping & more food choices/ more space/ more fun….

Our last six nights were a sell out and we’re keen to build on that success. If we do then we could be a stand alone festival again in 2020 - what a vision that would be.., and you could be part of it.
