AN ALE & MEAD FUELLED MUSICAL MID–WINTER REVEL
THE CONWAY HALL, 25 RED LION SQUARE, LONDON WC1 4RL
SATURDAY 19 FEBRUARY 3:00-11:00pm
Famously cosy Clerkenwell pub venue The Betsey Trotwood once again branches out for its much-anticipated mid-winter away day! After a tremendous response to the inaugural Winterlude in 2009 (with a headline set from The Magic Numbers) The Trotwood events team have once again opted for Holborn’s beautiful wood panelled, 500-capacity Conway Hall as the venue for 2011. The one-day festival will feature 6 of The Betsey’s favourite acts, with an emphasis on Folk-rock and Americana. The wonderful country–soul–folk collective Danny and The Champions of The World head the bill, along with the recently reformed original UK country-rockers The Rockingbirds and legendary loopy performance artist John Otway, young Swedish troubadour Benjamin Folke Thomas, The Treetop Flyers and The Cedars.
The Betsey Trotwood will be putting in their own bar, including a selection of Kentish real ales, real cider and medieval mead. Pies, pasties and sausage sarnies are on the menu as well as a tea and cake stand where there'll be special guests performing accordion driven French chanson, ’40's female a capella and oboe-fronted hippy harmony music.
Tickets are £17.50 available at The Betsey Trotwood 56 Farringdon Rd, EC1R 3BL,
