And the bands play on at the Brewery
Following on from the success of the first season of St Austell Brewery music sessions, six new events have been added to the line-up to bring exciting live and local music to the town running all the way through to Christmas 2017.

The new line-up features a mixture of first timers to the Brewery’s Visitor Centre venue, alongside favourites who have already graced the stage and packed the hall to the rafters and all except one for the same fabulous price of £5 for each event.

Kicking off on July 7th, the Brewery will celebrate the turning of the seasons with a special free Hog and Ale summer party, featuring chilled sessions from local artists Kezia, Samuel Howard and Laura Philpott. With the roast available from 7pm onwards, everyone is welcome to help bring in the summer in style at Cornwall’s newest and fastest growing live music venues.

September 8th sees the Brewery playing host to heavy metal masters Godstone, who wowed the audience when the recently formed quintet play support to King Creature earlier in the year. This time coming back in their own right, Godstone will bring their own support for what promises to be a riotous night out.

Echo Town, consisting of free-spirited brothers Ric and Rob Brown, came to Cornwall in 2015 and never looked back, finding a warm Cornish welcome as they brought their vibrant and energetic performances of contemporary freedom songs to the local music scene. Originally heavy rock based, the duo make use of multi instruments such as lap-slide guitar, djembe, didgeridoo and harmonica to create a totally original sound which is well worth catching up with on October 27th.

In November, the perennially popular Company B will storm the stage once again, bringing their own inimitable style and swing beats to the Brewery on the 10th, while a special extra gig has been added to the calendar on November 17th to present the adrenaline-fueled, infectious rock'n'roll blend of Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons. Ably supported by The Eyelids, this looks set to be a truly memorable night for just a fistful of cash.

Rounding off 2017 on December 15th, Cornwall’s own smoking funk, pop and rock quartet, the Olives, along with legendary sound engineer sandy Foord, will bring the season to an end in full and fitting party -style.

Tickets for each of the events, apart from the free Summer Party, are £5 and available in advance from the St Austell Brewery Visitor Centre on For more information about any of the events or to check ticket availability, call 01726 66022.
