Wallingford Blues and Beer Festival is a charity music and beer festival run by local volunteers. Originally started circa 1990 it became an independent festival in 2000 and has since raised over £40,000. All funds have gone towards promoting live music in Wallingford and helping youth development projects in the town and surrounding areas.
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 with its excellent sound quality and unique combination of inside and outside areas. All of which is no doubt helped by regular capacity crowds.
All bookings are filled for 2013.
Please revisit this web site in October 2013 for 2014 bookings.
