Worrall Festival & Gala returns on 30th June – 1st July with an impressive line-up featuring some of Sheffield’s best up and coming bands, alongside well-known local favourites.
Headlining the Friday night concert (tickets required, see below) is energetic folk band, Isembard’s Wheel, who describe themselves as “a Sheffield-based band of wayfarers and rabble-rousers… Rowdy, bohemian and always inventive.”
Saturday’s activities begin at 1pm with a Gala – featuring children’s activities, stalls, craft activities, music workshops, Our Cow Molly ice cream and much more.
The evening festival follows on at 4pm with performances from Cocklebread (a volunteer collective of musicians), Humble Williams and the ever entertaining indie/hip-hop 4 piece – Spit n Strings. The recently relaunched Treebeard will be bringing their eclectic mix of acoustic instruments and ‘Celtic folk-rock’ songs to the stage followed by Saturday’s headline act, The 20ft Squid Blues Band, whose blues rhythms will no doubt will bring the festival dancing to a close!
Budding musicians also have the opportunity to showcase their talent during the open-mic session which starts from 6pm. All abilities welcome.
