One of Sheffield’s biggest open air concerts has teamed up with Bradfield Brewery to offer four day summer spectacular which will bring together, beers, bands and much more!
Taking place between 29 June – 2 July, Music in the Gardens is organised by the Rotary Clubs of South Yorkshire and will feature a diverse entertainment line-up including headliners The Zombies, famous for hits such as “She’s Not There” and “Tell Her No” (Thursday 29 June); the best known Beatles tribute band in the business The Bootleg Beatles (Friday 30 June) and Classic 70s Rock outfit 10cc (Saturday 1 July). The event will culminate on Sunday 2 July when Sheffield Philharmonic Orchestra and Unite the Union band come together to perform a “Night at the Movies” as well as brass band favourites, proms and fireworks spectacular.
To celebrate the twelfth anniversary of Music in the Gardens, organisers have teamed up with Bradfield Brewery, who also celebrate their twelfth anniversary in 2017, to host a mini beer festival during the event.
Set to feature a variety of Bradfield Brewery’s popular farmers ales range, a special MitG Blonde will also be available exclusively during the event. For non-ale lovers, a range of wines, spirits, Pimms and soft drinks can also be purchased at the Bradfield Brewery bar, as well as a selection of hot drinks available from Café Carte. To soak up the abundance of alcohol on offer, food stalls including Spoilt For Choice Catering, Rotherham Hog Roast Company, Whirlow Hall Farm Trust and Our Cow Molly, will also take up residence at the four day festival.
Music in the Gardens organiser Phil Sherriff said: “We first started working with Bradfield Brewery five years ago and the beer and since then, the food and drink offering for Music in the Gardens has really grown. I think when most people think of visiting a music festival, they automatically assume that it is going to mean paying exorbitant prices for a pint of flat lager and a cold hot dog. Instead we have teamed up with some great local food and drink producers which will all be available at sensible prices.”
Josie Gill, Director of Bradfield Brewery said: “2005 saw Bradfield Brewery open its doors for the first time, and coincidentally it was also the same year that Music in the Gardens was first held. To mark this year’s anniversary we will be selling MitG Blonde, a beer available exclusively during the festival. We were thrilled to support Music in the Gardens once again this year, the music line-up is always fantastic and there’s always a really pleasant and friendly crowd, resulting in a true party atmosphere. and we are delighted to be a part of this wonderful event once again.”
