Fine beers and a blend of rock styles at brewery’s festival
Local legends Psycho Babble are headlining a live music and beer festival this month.
The Live @ The Brewery and Autumn Beer Festival takes place from 6.30pm at Weltons Brewery, Foundry Lane, Horsham, on Saturday, September 20.
Psycho Babble are a five-piece band who have toured with artists including The Bluetones, Soundtrack of Our Lives, The Rifles, Stiff Little Fingers, Shed Seven and The Undertones to name but a few.
The band’s eclectic range of material draws from the ’60s, punk and indie influences.
It aims to be thought provoking music for the listener that switches between blistering all-out numbers and soulful heartfelt tunes.
Support is provided by the almost equally legendary Blue Stragglers.
With the rhythm section of Andy Head and Ali Waite behind the sublime guitar and vocals of Lee “The Cardinal” Martin, Blue Stragglers offer a jam heavy alternative rock.
Opening the evening will be Mike & The Criminals. Audiences can expect a few cheeky covers and plenty of original material from Mike Whiteley and his gang.
Fine local beers will be offered at reasonable prices and there will be a visit from a Warnham fish ’n’ chip van during the evening.
People can also come down to Weltons Brewery in the afternoon from 1pm (starts at 2pm) for a tutored beer tasting with Ray Welton. Taste the beers under his guidance and hear where the flavours and ingredients come from. People can learn about all the dramas attached to running a small brewery and have the process of brewing explained in plain English.
Doors open at 6.30pm with live music starting at 7.30pm.
Tickets in advance cost £4 from The Beer Essentials, East Street, Horsham. All ages welcome.
