Throughout the weekend Allington’s playing field fundraisers will be running a mini beer festival from a barn in the courtyard area at the rear of the Welby Arms. The courtyard, which will have a marquee cover, will also host the live music.
Access to this area will be by ticket/wristband on Friday and Saturday (from 3.30pm). At other times it will be free.

Selected sounds from our resident DJ throughout the evening between the live sessions.
A great start to the live music with a solo set from the amazing Ant Macandrew. He never disappoints.
The Most Ugly Child
Live music from The Most Ugly Child. One of the hottest bands in Nottingham and now getting nationwide attention. Americana and Country at its best. They are a 6-piece country powerhouse, with rabble rousing fiddle breaks and pedal steel swells to make you weep. They can have you dancing on the tables or break your heart with their poignant lyrics.
The Most Ugly Child
Live music – the second session from The Most Ugly Child
We are charging to see the live music from 6pm on Friday and 3.30pm on Saturday. The beer festival will be accessible free of charge on Saturday lunchtime and all day Sunday (if there is any left). All other activities on Sunday are also free of charge.
The majority of proceeds from this event will go to support Allington Playing Field. We are also hoping to be able to make a donation to a local charity.
You cannot bring your own drinks to any activities that are taking place at The Welby Arms, namely the live music on Friday and Saturday and the beer festival throughout the weekend.
The live music will be taking place in a confined space and it is likely to be standing room only. Consequently we can’t allow chairs to the Friday and Saturday events. You can certainly use them on Sunday – if you can find a space.
Plenty of car parking space will be available at the Playing Field which will be signed. It is a 5 minute walk to the event. Please do not park on the verges.
Yes. Over the weekend the Welby Arms will be providing a bbq within the event itself. You will also be able to order festival food from the pub bar.
The bbq menu will consist of a range of burgers including lamb and mint and pork and apple. There will also be Lincolnshire hot dogs. The range of festival food will include fish and chips, pies, chicken curry, chilli and a vegetarian option.
On Sunday the W.I will be serving bacon butties and cream teas. We also understand that the shop will be selling ice creams.
