Maytime Party Weekender

Maytime Party Weekender

Tonight’s the night! We are turning the ripe old age of six, and to celebrate we are having our biggest party yet. Starting at 7 pm this evening we have three days of special events, live music and, of course, gin! We’ve even invested in a la-dee-da marquee in case the never-ending summer fails us and it rains, so there are no excuses for not making it down.

But just what have we got planned? Well, here’s our itinerary for the entire weekend:



Join us from 7 pm this evening, to see the bloke who sells us all our cool beer, and a few others play some tiny guitars. This is a rather convoluted way of saying that we have the Ukeholics performing check them out on Facebook here.

In the garden, we’re going to be cooking up a storm on a very special bbq in addition to our usual menu accompanied by our outside bar serving an implausible number of types of gin. Plus it will be the first day of our real cider and real ale festival.


Then, tomorrow we are going all out, with live music tasting from 12:30 pm. We’re going to be hosting a boules tournament for those who like their parties to feature a competitive edge. For the little ones (and silly adults) we have a face painting stall, and for the pooches, we’re going to be hosting another pop-up dog photography studio, so there truly is something for everyone.

Schedule for live music:
12:30-14:00 – Adam Isaac
14:30-16:00 – Vince Freeman
16:30-18:30 – David Julien


Then, on Sunday we’ll be taking things down a notch. Alongside our traditional, delicious, Sunday roasts we will be serving up a side of jazz, lounge and blues music in the garden to help you chill and prepare for the week ahead.

Schedule for live music:
12:30-13:15 – Steve Williams
13:00-14:30 – Patsy Gamble Trio
15:00-15:45 – Steve Williams
16:15-17:30 – Steve Williams
