Headlining Saturday night – Sneaky Finch!
On Saturday night we are thrilled to welcome back Sneaky Finch – Cumbria’s premier party-rock band! The Carlisle-based pop, punk & rock trio have been playing together since their late teens and have performed to audience members in their thousands, in a musical career spanning across three decades. Sneaky Finch have earned their word-of-mouth reputation as one of the most reliable acts to entice revellers onto the dancefloor, performing at countless weddings, parties, festivals, charity events and pubs. Jamie, Steve and Ash first performed for us at Greystoke Beer Festival 2013 and they are as excited as we are to make their return. Expect plenty of singalongs that span the decades teamed with a lively performance not to be missed.
Providing the food option for Saturday is the Angel Lane Chippie with the menu here: https://www.thechippievan.co.uk/menu
