Buzz Fest, now in its fourth year, takes place 9-10 August and is free to attend. There’ll be two stages with local bands and artists performing both inside and out. Since it’s summer, they’re giving the event a Hawaiian slant, so seek out the tiki bar and kick back with a cocktail, or sample the ciders at their mini cider festival.
The pub will also be putting on a hog roast and barbecue. Saturday night acts include The Jackson Creek Band, Nik Lowe, Honeywitch, Angel Underground, The Hot Lights and lots more. On Sunday, catch James White, Quiet Choir, Jessica Grace and other acoustic acts, plus Best Intentions, This is Eight and Eskimos.
Says landlady Jo Tomkins: “It’s a great platform for bands and artists to perform to people who wouldn’t normally hear their music. Our garden is transformed with an outside bar, live acoustic stage and kids area. It’s a great opportunity to bring together the local community.”
