On Friday (after much anticipation we hope), you can collect your wristbands, indulge in some shameless strumming and sit back enjoy the open mike session hosted by Unplugthewood  (or even have a go yourself) during the evening. All at The Quay Arts Centre

Wristband exchange from 17.30

organised jamming from 18.30

open mike from 19.30


Saturday morning will see the first set of workshops,  the Fringe stage hosted by the one and only Professor Eek  and the opportunity for more strumming if your finger nails are still intact after Friday.

Saturday afternoon will see the start of the main stage events at Quay Arts which are as follows:

14.00 - Introduction from Martyn 'Eek' Cooper

14.05 - The Hedge Inspectors

Saturday night sees a venue change to The Wheatsheaf for a chance to let your hair down, loosen up your bones and 'dance the night away' with the amazing JC Grimshaw (and perhaps a few surprises). If you don't fancy strutting your stuff come along and watch, you'll be missing out if you don't.


Sunday morning has jamming and workshops and a short period of reflection for those that gave their lives during The Great War.

JC Grimshaw will be performing at the Bargemans Rest  at Sunday lunchtime.

Sunday afternoon at Riverside will be the grand jam-boree (raffle draw, mass jam and workshop performances.
