On a sunny day Bickerstock is an idyllic spot, but we can’t always rely on the sunshine so our large marquee is worth its weight in gold in case of inclement weather. It also provides good shade should we be lucky enough to need it!
The marquee houses ‘The Bar Stage’ at one end, as well as a bar, refreshments and tables and chairs. There is plenty of room for dancing come rain, hail or shine.
There will be 2 stages at Bickerstock, the main stage outside ‘The Garden Stage’, and a more intimate space for acoustic style music, ‘The Bar Stage’, in the main marquee. This allows us to offer a wide variety of all styles of music to suit all tastes throughout the weekend.
Bands, artists and musicians are local and all play for free, as all our proceeds go to charity. So go on, give them an extra cheer.
Licensed refreshments are available from the bar, from wines to locally brewed ales; there’s something to suit everyone’s tastes.
There is a superb range of food and nonalcoholic beverages to satisfy all tastes. Here’s what’s on offer and when so you can plan your munchies with your music!
The Trinity Tea Shop
Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, juices, lots of homemade cakes and other goodies are available from Gladys’s fabulous tea stand from 11am onwards. Come and put your feet up, have a natter and a cuppa, and be entertained by the bands. All proceeds from this stall go to Holy Trinity Church, Bickerstaffe.
The Barrow Nook Barbeque
The Barbecue is run by the Barrow Nook Community Bar-b-Crew, long standing Bickerstaffe residents who are masters of the hot coals.
