Big Boy Bloater 'rounds off' Saturday night with the amazing Larry Miller Band and Ian Parker – all blues masters.
The Regal will Rock in 2014 for sure Oi Oi! Tickets are already available on-line so book early to avoid disappointment (as they say).
Having gained a reputation as one of the best Blues festivals in the UK this town centre venue (in a former cinema) creates a unique atmosphere. The combination of an excellent sound quality with inside and outside areas no doubt attracts the regular capacity crowds.
Starting around 1990 this charity event has raised over £40,000 for youth based music programmes and youth development in the local area. The Afternoon Session offers a great opportunity for under 18's (free with accompanying adults) to listen to live music… and sometimes even perform.
- Great live music
- Great Blues
- Great beer, cider, wines & soft drinks
- Great BBQ
- Free parking
