Rhythm & Brews: Great Music . . . Great Beer

3 months ago By James Wheeler

The inaugural Rhythm & Beers Festival begins this Thursday at the club and runs until Sunday.

Rhythm and Brews, created by the Blues Bar Tring and Tring Cricket Club, sponsored by The Akeman and supported by Tring Brewery, combines top class rhythm and blues musical acts with 12 of the finest cask ales, for a great summer night out at Tring Park Cricket Club.

The cost of a day music ticket in advance is £10 while on the day it will cost £12.

Get tickets for all these great bands right here.

The festival begins on Thursday with the bars opening at 4pm. Our opening act Storm Warning take the stage at 8.30pm so there is plenty of time to get down and enjoy a selection of the 12 different beers on offer before settling down for some great live music. We will also have our full bar menu available to help soak up any beer filled stomachs.

The bar once again opens at 4pm and the live music again begins at 8.30pm with Three Bar Fire taking to the stage. There will also be junior cricket practise being held on Friday evening which means our usual BBQ will also be able to fill up any hungry tummies.

Our Saturday line-up is outstanding. The bar opens at Midday giving the happy punters more time to taste many if not all of our 12 different beers on offer.

Our Second Team are at home on the main ground against Kew while the Fourth Team take on Hayes on the back pitch. If that's not enough for you we will also be showing the Royal Wedding, Rugby Premiership Semi-Finals and the 2018 FA Cup Final on the big screen.

The at 8.30pm, a Blues Bar favourite the John Verity Band take the stage to round off an action packed Saturday. Once again our full bar menu will be available all day.

Finally on Sunday the Bar will once again be open at Midday with the fantastic Sweetcornbread closing the festival at 3.30pm.
