PRESS RELEASE EMBARGOED UNTIL 4TH FEB 12 NOON
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.
