Blues in a Bandstand

Day 9 – Sunday 21st July – Chuckery Festival 2013

July 18, 2013

Another gig at the Bandstand? As if last weekend wasn’t good enough, there’s more.

It’s great to see the Chuckery Festival using this venue in Walsall Arboretum. It’s been getting a lot of use since the refurbishment, and what’s particularly special about this event is you can catch the Grey Goose Blues Band and Walsall Jazz Orchestra on the same bill, closing with Fat Lip and plenty of other musical gems to keep you entertained all afternoon.

I can’t recommend this line up enough, and according to the Met Office there might actually be a bit of Sun in our Sunday.
