The Blyth Power Ashes 2019

What The Ashes Did Next

Hello Everyone.

We are very happy to announce this year's Ashes will be happening on the weekend of 23rd - 26th August, again at The Hunters Inn, Longdon, near Tewkesbury. Well, now we have showers we may never move :)

Bands will appear here as they are comfirmed so do keep an eye out, but I think by now we know what to expect...

Morris Dancing and the Ashes Dog Show will all be back, together, we're sure, with a whole host of other ever more unlikely occurrences.

There will be again be all kinds of events planned for the younger brethren among you, with Silver Fox and Bemps continuing to make Storytime an event if they remember and stay sober enough.

Tally Ho! will once more be keeping the less noticing among you abreast of daily happenings thanks to the tireless efforts of our journomonkeys in the back of the van.

Monday will see the return of the Blyth Power Summer Fete, with the much enjoyed tug of war and hopefully ever more unlikely stalls. Expect three legged races, egg and spoon, sack races and the like once again.

This year Ashes Monday will feature Pont Au-Dessus de la Brue plus assorted B sides that didn't make it onto an album. Snappy, eh?

As last year the pub will be open for food over the course of the weekend, and snacks will once again be available outside the marquee, together with real ales and ciders. The pub will be open Thursday evening as well and there is a growing band of early birds so do feel free to turn up then and join us.

Entertainment will again run through from Friday evening, throughout Saturday, Sunday and on into Monday. Do camp over until Tuesday. It will be bloody marvellous. As always bring as much firewood as possible for after hours singalongs please.

Anyone willing or eager to help out with door duties, sound duties, or crèche duties do please get in touch.

Ticket cost is £30 all inclusive for the weekend. Which we still happen to think is a pretty good deal for three and a half nights and days of camping and entertainment. As always the event is free for under 18s.

Details of the venue can be found HERE and you can buy tickets through the Shop page.
