Brewing up a musical feast
On September 8th 1935, Frank Sinatra made his radio debut as part of the Hoboken Four. On the same day in 1972, Mott the Hoople released the iconic “All the Young Dudes” while September 8th 1998 marked the beginning of ‘Garth Brooks Week’ in Philadelphia.
In 2018, in similar epoch-making fashion, St Austell Brewery hosts the very first Brewstock festival on Saturday September 8th, kicking off at 12 midday boasting 10 live acts as well as great beer and a BBQ to whet the appetite of ardent music lovers.
With local heroes like Godstone, Moriaty and O’deus featuring on the main stage and Ben Thorpe, Samuel Howard and Rue on the Small Batch Stage, there’s musical variety to suit all tastes, while over 25 St Austell Brewery, Bath Ales and small batch brews will cater for the most eclectic of ale palates.
The brainchild of Brewery Visitor Centre Manager Will Nash, Brewstock is set to become an annual event, helping to raise money for the Brewery’s Charitable Trust, which has raised over three quarters of a million pounds for local charities, individuals and organisations in need since its inception in 2003.
As Will commented, “The idea of Brewstock is to showcase the wealth of local musical talent that we are lucky to have. Our monthly music nights are a part of that and thee Brewery is such a great venue for live music that it made sense to expand on those single music nights, create something really special and raise money for charity at the same time.”
Tickets for the all-day event are just £10 and are available on a first come, first served basis at the Brewery Visitor Centre, online at firstname.lastname@example.org and can be booked on 01726 66022, where more information about the live music acts and the event itself can be obtained.
