Beer Festival (aka Pie and Ale Festival) 2018 dates
All our friends and local beer lovers will be delighted to hear that there will be another Pie and Ale Festival in 2018. The dates will be
Friday 26, Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 January 2018.
The beer festival will run from Friday lunchtime until Sunday night and there will be live music on Saturday night and Sunday evening. We hope that you will want to come and chase away the post Christmas and New Year blues … by trying lots of lovely real ale and our famous homemade pies.
We’re hugely looking forward to two big nights of live music here at The Owls Nest. We’ve lined up two exciting acts which will blow your mind away!
Saturday 14th October : Totog – an evening of Rock, Pop, Funk and Motown
Have a watch of the video below to experience the great range of music that Totog play.
Saturday 28th October : Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls – Throwing old time, alt country and punk into a backwoods still to make musical moonshine.
We are delighted that The Old Dry Skulls will be making a welcome return to The Owls Nest with their unique genre-bending music. This is absolutely not one to be missed – it will be a Hallowe’en party like no other!
Check out their latest video!
These music nights will undoubtedly be hugely popular – we strongly urge you to book a table in advance! Contact us to book.
Thursday 6th July : Acoustic Irish folk session, from 8.00pm. Our regular Irish night which is justifiably popular with our regulars.
Saturday 15th July : Freeborn Brothers, from 9.00pm. Billed as ‘gypsy, hobo, trash grass’ from Poland – what’s not to like?
‘We wanna bring you chaos! We wanna give you fun! We wanna take you for a trip to our world where gypsy heart meets american folk, where melodies and energy means more then anything else before! the FREEBORN BROTHERS are here to give you relief in hard times, to put smile on your face and sweat a lot! YO!’
Wed 26th July : Stan’s Blues Jam. From 8.30pm. Some fantastic local talent jamming the blues!
Sat 29th July : Moonshine Wagon, from 9.00pm. Another international band coming to Parley – to play ‘bluegrass acoustic punk’. More madness at the Owls Nest!
In May the Bourne River Morris Men visited the Owls Nest and performed in the car park on a lovely evening in May.
Formed in 1967, the Bourne River Morris Men are members of the Morris Ring. They perform dances mainly from the Cotswold area. They take their colours and the fishes symbol from the Bournemouth coat of arms.
The Owls Nest also welcomes the Mummers over the Christmas period.
