If you’ve not come across it before, The Ferry Tavern is a lovely little pub sandwiched between the banks of the Mersey and the Sankey Canal, half way between Widnes and Warrington, and a mere lump of coal’s throw from Fiddler’s Ferry.
Known for its summer Glastonferry Festival, The Ferry Tavern is adding an extra date to the diary in the form of an all day Acoustic Music Festival this coming Saturday 27th April 2013. And they’ve got a cracking line-up in store.
The event starts at 1pm, and the music runs from 2pm to 11pm, featuring:-
This all takes place in a huge marquee, with outside seating if the weather is nice. There’s a full bar in the marquee serving real ale and cider, plus a traditional hog roast. And don’t forget the Tavern’s whiskey collection. Taking this into account, it’s not surprising that it’s an 18 years and over event.
Entry is by wristband available from the bar for £15, or from ticketline. But you’d better be quick, because as of today (Monday 22nd April) there were only 30 tickets left!
