This year we have introduced - Live on the Green  - the exciting extension to the Country Fair…

Focusing on local talent the organisers have announced that Brindley-Hunt, the popular and talented acoustic rock/pop duo will be playing. Bryan Brindley and Barry Hunt have recently released a CD of their own music featuring 12 original songs, all written, performed, arranged and mixed by Bryan and Barry. They will be will be playing some of their own finely crafted songs along with great versions of classic songs

Good acoustic modern music played live by local musicians is the order of the night.   The organisers are therefore also pleased to confirm that local singer song writer Kirsty Clarke will also be performing with her band the Heartbeats.

Clifton’s very own Ian Peters with his band the Reprobates - many will have heard them play in other local venues - will be providing songs by The Beatles, Oasis, The Eagles, Van Morrison, The Faces, Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton, the Who.
