Third annual Heddon Valley Beer & Music Festival returns this weekend

 

I’m struggling to think of a better way to spend your weekend breaks UK than at a Beer & Music Festival on the doorstep of Exmoor and our North Devon holiday parks?

This weekend, The Hunters Inn plays host to its self-proclaimed “Exmoor’s Friendliest Festival, when the Heddon Valley Beer & Music Festival returns for a third successive year.

From Friday, September 12 to Sunday, September 14, the Inn’s garden is transformed into an exciting mix of beer, food and live music.

Brother Jack, Falling Apart and The Raggamuffins kick off festivities on Friday, with headliners The Roughnecks playing a catalogue of classic rock and funk covers from 10.30pm.

The bar opens from 12pm on Saturday, with live music throughout the afternoon from Dogleg, Boomer and Honk and The Joydanaires. A funky hip-hop set from The Breaks Collective will warm the evening audience up before headliners The Scaramanga Six blast out some rock!

On Sunday, Douglas E Powell, The Flamin’ Ratrods and Head Over Feet take to the stage before Basil’s Blues Band bring the festival to a close with their signature old school blues sound.

For those on their family weekend breaks, bouncy castles will do a job of keeping the entertained while your sit back and enjoy the hog roast and live music with a pint in hand.

It takes a special tipple for me to stray from my beloved Peroni, but there are more than 40 fantastico tipples on offer from local breweries including Barum Ales of Barnstaple, Forge of Hartland and Jolly Boat of Bideford, as well as traders from further afield.

Admission to the festival is £5 and includes a commemorative glass. For more information visit the event’s Facebook page here www.facebook.com/HeddonValleyBeerFestival.
