Evening Concert

Hosted by The Cheese and Grain, our evening concert can also include street food, but this must be booked in advance. It was amazing last year and included vegetarian and vegan options.

After the Battle of the Bands Final, Bath based supergroup The Mother Pluckers will take to the stage, followed by our surprise guests – Feral Beryl (ooops – there’s the surprise gone!) The Mighty Frukes close proceedings with lots of new songs (well, new to them.)
