“Andy’s music will allow our customers to sit back and unwind while they enjoy good food and drink.

“We will have pop-up wine stalls hosted by our local suppliers with dozens of different wines to try from around the world. There will also be the chance to chat to the experts while enjoying the festival atmosphere.

“Our gin shack will be open offering a refreshing variety of classic and innovative gin mixes with garnishes and we will have a cocktail bar on-site too, plus all of our main bars will also be open.

“Food will also be available on the day including pizzas, oysters and big pan paellas.”

The pub’s all-weather garden, complete with tepee with central fire pit, will be the backdrop for the event and the pub’s Venga Bus will be running free of charge to and from its sister restaurant Venga on the High Street in Portishead and, also, to and from Clevedon.
