Springstock is our one day outdoor festival of live music taking place in half an acre of our pub garden.
We have seven amazing bands of the highest quality to entertain you over 9 hours.
We're delighted to announce this year's superb line-up:
  • King Size Slim
  • Steve Morano
  • 3 Buck Shirt
  • Dr Bluegrass and the Illbilly 8
  • Northsyde
  • Corduroy
  • Coda
To read all about them, please download our PDF flyer here or go to our Springstock Facebook page.
All facilities at Springstock will be laid on outside in the garden so the pub itself will be closed.
There will therefore be no card payment facilities on the day. You will need to bring cash.

Tickets are on sale online from this page (see right hand column) for £25 plus a small booking fee or you can pop into the pub and purchase them direct without a booking fee.
Please note this is a ticket only event. All tickets must be purchased in advance and proof of booking shown on arrival - no tickets will be available on the day. Anyone arriving without evidence of pre-booked tickets will be refused entry. Tickets are non-refundable.
We will have at least 6 cask ales racked and chilled in the garden plus a range of real ciders, bottled beers, wine, soft drinks and water. Tea and coffee will also be available.
Hot food will be served between 2pm and 5pm and then, after an hour's changeover, more dishes for early evening served until Corduroy strikes up. We'll have choices of meat, gluten-free and vegan meals, of course.
All drinks and food will be served in eco-friendly, biodegradable containers.
We'll have our own Flowing Spring t-shirts and Springstock t-shirts available to buy plus other stalls selling groovy gear and merchandise.
Car parking will be limited. We encourage everyone to arrange other ways of getting here. Get a lift, a taxi, car-share, walk or come by bike!
We will have portaloos in the garden and there is also an outdoor accessible loo with hand washing facilities.
The live music strikes up at 2pm and the festival winds down around 11:30pm at the end of Coda's performance. We ask everyone to leave the premises promptly, quietly and safely.
Finally, don't forget to dress up hippy style to really get into the spirit of Springstock!
It's going to be fabulous!
