Music and ale festival in April

Real Ale Festival flyerA Real Ale Festival with plenty of live bands comes to Walthamstow on Friday 8 April. The festival is an all-day affair with the bands in the evening.

The festival is at the Waltham Forest Sports & Social Club, which is in the Town Hall complex on Forest Road. It’s a nice little pub and I think it’s great that they’re hosting an event such as this. The ale part of the festival features ales and cider from the south coast of the UK.

There is an impressive music line-up, with six bands booked to play. Eastroad, Corporal Machine & The Bombers, Steve White & The Protest Family, Tom Lynch & Andy Green, Sarcastic Fringehead and some regulars from Walthamstow Folk are all set to appear. More details about the bands are on the Facebook event page here.

Festivities kick off at noon, with the music starting at 8pm. Entry is £1 before 8pm, £2 after, with free entry for Club members and CAMRA members. More details can be found here.

Here’s a clip of the headliners Eastroad performing their track ‘Shy’. I think the slightly lo-fi visuals make it look quite an arty video!
