playing live at
Canal Beer Festival
The Waterfront Bar, Pewsey Wharf
Sunday 19th July 2009

The Mangledwurzels played on the second day of the two-day Waterfront Bar Beer Festival at Pewsey Wharf on the rain-swept banks of the Kennet & Avon Canal. The previous night had been packed, with Bedwyn Busker and Humdinger providing the entertainment - and indifferent weather with occassional downpours didn't stop a decent crowd gathering for The Mangledwurzels' show on the Sunday afternoon.

The Box Steam Brewery bar had a big range of their real ales (all nice stuff!) and a few real ciders from Broadoak Cider. In addition there was a rather splendid barbecue, which the band enjoyed! 'Shag' the landlord also had arranged for volunteers from the Help For Heroes charity to come along for a little fundraising. Their raffle raised £250 for the charity on the day.

Negotiations are already underway for a return to the venue in November for their Bah Humbug! anti-Christmas party - and with any luck we'll be back at next year's beer festival too!
