Willaspoons in Thorne will be hosting its annual ‘Willafest’ pub festival at the weekend.
The ‘pub fest’ will be celebrating its sixth birthday, and it’s expected to be ‘one hell of a party’!
They have acquired acts from all across Yorkshire and it is set to be their biggest music line up to date. Live acts for the event will include performances from The Clog Iron Brothers, indie tribute band Re:play – playing sounds from greats such as Kings of Leon and Oasis – and pop rock bands Wrooted and Black Bear Bones. Acoustic performers One for The Road and Steph Baker will also be showing off their vocal skills.
On the day there will be a special outside bar and the music will start from 2:00pm, continuing till late for your all day entertainment. Hot and cold food will also be served. Face painting by Glitter Rockz will be held in the courtyard.
This year’s chosen charity in which the proceeds of a raffle will go to is Trust 22; a cause dedicated to helping local families and the community.
Tickets for the event are £3 – which includes a free first drink – and can be purchased from Willaspoons on Silver Street. The festival takes place on Saturday 2 June.
