Date published: 13 May 2019

Premier charity fundraisers Saddleworth Round Table are hoping for a record turn out for this Saturday’s (18th May) Band in a Barn, in the idyllic setting at Doctor House Farm, Doctor Lane, Scouthead. 

29-year old John Arthurs of Uppermill, this year’s event lead says, "We’re so excited to be holding another Band in Barn and this year is shaping up to be the biggest one to date. 

Our team has curated a fantastic array of local bands and musicians, including a headline act from Professor Fonque and the All-stars plus DJ sets from local touring act, The Howling Rhythm.”

The barn also accommodates a well-stocked chilled bar with prosecco, beer and ales from Donkeystone Brewery, Alex of Saddleworth Distillery will be on hand to serve saddleworth s finest Gin & Tonics. 

Street food is also available including a wood fired Pizza oven serving delicious pizzas.

35-year old Andrew Rothwell, this year’s Saddleworth Round Table chairman, said, “Anyone who has attended this event in previous years will tell you this is a fantastic and quirky event with the rustic ideal of listening to amazing live music in a busy barn, potentially dancing next to a herd of cows!

Last year’s event raised more than £4,500 for local worthy causes including Oldham Foodbank, RSPCA, Saddleworth Youth rangers and the Saddleworth Olympics.

Please show your support by coming along on Saturday” he added.
