Crowds enjoy sun-drenched music at Swatty Fest

This past Sunday, The Miners Arms in Swarthmoor hosted Swatty Fest for a day of sun-drenched music.

Some of the area’s top performers dazzled crowds in the beer garden to the benefit of Ulverston Mind. 

The party began with an outside BBQ, burgers galore and even a lager raffle. There were birthdays celebrated and music appreciated. Owners of the pub, Lynne and Stuart Ward have held the festival for the last few years, having raised £1402 in 2015 alone. Stuart described the event as ‘the best Swatty Fest Ever’ posting pictures of the huge crowds.

Classic Rock Trio Big Trouble wowed guests and the Furness blues, rock covers band the Flying Cascara Brothers delighted patrons with hits from The Beatles, The Kinks, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones and The Clash – plus many more.

There was a magician and a reggae artist, which meant fun for the whole family.

Local Vocalist Abbie Clarke, who is a vocal tutor at the South Lakes Rock School, posted her thoughts on Facebook after her performance. "Brilliant set at swattyfest! Thank you to everyone who came along and danced along! Brilliant weekend full of gigging dancing and memories Hope to see you all soon."

If you missed out on the great day, Abbie Clarke is performing at the Miner’s Arms again this Sunday at 6:30pm.

I don’t know about you, but I’m already excited for next year.
