We have a great line up of musical entertainment through the festival. Details of the artists may be found below. Please consider booking one or more of the entertainers if you are having an event, see the links to their websites and / or social media.

We try to have a selection of styles and types of entertainment. There should be something to suit most customers. Afternoons are quieter, than evenings, with more acoustic entertainment. There is, in addition to the main hall, a quiet lounge upstairs (lift available).

JakLash Cat

Performing: Saturday evening

JakLash Cat are a three piece Chester band, with a country rock influence, who write and perform their own songs. The line-up consists of Phil “Lash” Blundell on rhythm guitar and vocals, John “Jak” Evans on bass guitar and Steve “Cat” Pyne on lead guitar.

Having been drinking partners for many years, they decided to form a band a few years ago, partly inspired by a stranger who approached the three of them in a pub one night and  said “You guys have got to be in a band!” So, after many hours of practice and quite a bit of time busking, they’re now taking on more indoor gigs and will be completing their new album “Promises and Vows“, which should be released April 2019.  Also hear them here: Old Man to book them Email: @

Performing: Friday and Saturday evenings

Martin, Geoff and Brian, based in the Wirral and Chester areas, have been wowing audiences with their mix of acoustic, classic and modern covers for longer than they care to remember.  As major Beer Festival favourites, they have headlined at CAMRA and Charity events all over the North West including the Liverpool, Chester and North Wales Beer Festivals.

Their ecclectic mix of harmony and guitars together with the subtle dynamics of their songs has proven to be a winning formula for their audiences.  They tend to start with their soft acoustic based numbers, perhaps some Neil Young or Ryan Adams songs, often unaccompanied by drums or percussion, which gently lull you into a warm, secure and uplifting mood….
