Busking Fundraiser with Beer Tasting too!

On Saturday 26th August, from 12 noon until 4pm, The Witham Arts Centre in Barnard Castle are holding a Beer and Busk afternoon to celebrate live acoustic music and local ale.  A fundraisier for The Witham, local musicians are performing in the Café Bar to raise money to support the venue as a whole.

This is one of many initiatives The Witham are holding help raise much-needed funds for the arts centre, a place devoted to offering everyone access to the arts. As a venue with a love of folk and roots music, and with previous success of community music busking events, Beer and Busk afternoon offers an excellent chance to sit back and enjoy live music with the added attaction of ale sampling!

With musicians to include local youth folk ensemble, Cream Tees, much-loved open mic specialist Malcolm Elsbury and authentic trad-folk trio, Over the Yardam, visitors to the café can enjoy the acoustic music throughout the afternoon.

Supporting the event is Danny McColl, owner and brewer at Teesdale based, McColl’s Brewery. Danny will be bringing along a range of beers for sampling and tasting. The brewery is Upper Teesdales first brewery in a generation and produces quality beer with 100% British ingredients with a view to producing experimental, seasonal and alternative beers in the fuutre. Passionate about sharing techniques and product information, customers will most definiely appreciate hearing from Danny about the magic behind his products on the day.

 

The Witham’s usual beer selection from Wylam Brewery and Allendale Brewery, plus tasty homemade fare in the café will be the icing on the cake for a perfect afternoon of local music making. Visitors can also take part in a raffle where prizes include the chance to win a package of quality beers thanks to McColl's Brewery, as well as tickets for folk gigs Lady Maisery and Blazin’ Fiddles in the autumn.
