Craftwork VI. 
Friday 30th JUNE - Saturday 1st JULY
Child/Dog Friendly

It’s back for its fifth instalment. Live Music, Food, DJs, Art and Exclusive New Beers!


Friday night we're kicking things off with Live Music from from one of Glasgow's finest bands Pronto Mama with support in the form of local newcomers Penguin!

Pronto Mama are a past post-modern bug-eyed beatnik group from Glasgow who are just as confused as anyone else. They are soulful. They believe irreverent wordplay, clean musicianship and a dirty dedication to song-writing is how you do it. Following the release of their anticipated debut album "Any Joy" this is not to be missed.

DJ sets on Saturday night come from Frankie (Frankie & the heart strings) taking you throught to the early hours!


THREE new beers will be avaible over the weekend! One of which is our June special and returning favourite - Strawberrys & Cream! A luxurious 4.1% pale ale with heaps of fresh strawberries and lactose. Keeping with the fruity theme we'll also be brewing a couple of juicy IPA's with flavours of Blood Orange & Passionfruit!


Friday from 4pm we're joined by The Pie Shop! They'll be dishing up an excellent range of local pies with all works - mash, peas and gravy!

Check them out here -

On Saturday from 2pm we'll be joined by the Artisan Baking Community. They'll be setting up shop and selling a fantastic array of locally produced breads and savoury snacks. Full loaves will be available to purchase as well as snack size foods for those eating in!

The Artisan Baking Community is a volunteer led operation that works across communities trying to encourage and include the lesser advantaged in our society.

WE'RE super excited to announce that The Lake Poets will be performing a FREE gig on Saturday 24th of JUNE with talented supports in the form of Jake Houlsby and John Newell Brown!

The Lake Poets is Martin Longstaff, a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter from Sunderland.

Inspired by artists such as Elvis Perkins, Carole King, Villagers, Feist, Van Morrison, Fionn Regan, John Martyn, Wilco, Damien Rice, Bright Eyes, and Neil Young, Martin’s output as The Lake Poets is as haunting as it is beautiful.

Described as ‘Quietly Devastating’, ‘Accomplished and Intelligent and 'Spellbinding and Heart-breaking, Martin’s music regularly silences audiences and turns heads. Lead single 'Your Face’ has received over 4 million Spotify plays as well steady daytime airplay on BBC Radio 2, Radio X, and BBC 6 Music.

The Lake Poets’ self-titled debut album was recorded at Blackbird Studio, Nashville and is out now on CD, as well as special edition double gatefold 12" vinyl including a bonus Live recording of the album recorded over two sold out launch nights in Martin’s hometown medieval Minster and mixed at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studio.

“Somewhere between Bright Eyes and John Martyn. Something Special” - Mojo ****

“Stunning Debut from Sunderland Troubadour. Quietly Brilliant” - Uncut 8/10

“For decades the sound of the acoustic guitar has pulled at the heartstrings of so many. Now Longstaff is carrying on that tradition with his beautiful, thought provoking, honest acoustic music. When I first heard The Lake Poets I was blown away” - The Guardian

“Beautiful songs, an act to watch” - BBC Radio 1

“Beautiful and quietly devastating - Stunningly heart-breaking music” - BBC 6 Music
