Hundreds of people are set to descend on Haverhill at the weekend for the town’s popular beer and music festival.
The event, which is now in its fourth year, will take place on Saturday, July 7, and Sunday, July 8, with street entertainment, live music and a range of craft beers to sample.
Saturday will see an impressive line-up of professional performers share Market Square with regular market traders, while Sunday sees an afternoon set of easy-listening covers from Joe and Shell.
Alaric Pugh, St Edmundsbury cabinet member for planning and growth, said: “The council has made the health of our high streets a priority and I believe Haverhill, with its lovely quality of there always being time for a word with neighbours, shop keepers, market traders and all, has something special.
“It offers all the shops, services and amenities you’d expect of Suffolk’s fourth largest town, but feels more like a friendly village.
“Our aim in supporting events like this festival is to encourage surrounding villages to have another look at Haverhill, discover how things have changed by enjoying some time here and use it as their high street too.”
The programme for the event is as follows:
Noon - Daisy Hill: A young singer/songwriter from Cambridgeshire performing heartfelt songs for piano, guitar and voice.
1pm - Caitlyn Proctor: A talented young singer performing a wide range of acoustic favourites
2pm - Nikki Cook: Performing lively modern cover tracks
3pm - Serena Grant: A professional singer who has performed all around the country singing upbeat modern favourites
5pm - The Bonfire Band: A lively selection of folk/blues and country hits
6pm - Fiona Harber: Award winning singer performing funk and soul to rock and pop classics
7.30pm - Soul Solution: Back for his third year, Ian Saunders performs some of the best soul classics around
12.15pm-3.30pm: Joe and Shell perform a blend of easy listening cover songs, which are perfect for a Sunday afternoon
