After seven long months we’re opening the doors at Cheltenham Town Hall to Cheltenham Literature Festival
After seven long months we’re opening the doors at Cheltenham Town Hall today to welcome socially distanced, and reduced capacity, audiences to Cheltenham Literature Festival. It’s a very different year but it’s good to be back.
There’s free live entertainment at the Garden Bar marquee throughout the weekend starting tonight with Frankenstein’s Lobster who claim to be the only band to play rock ukulele and rock bass ukulele and to have the smallest drum kit on the circuit. The band will be serving up a set of rock covers from 6pm.
They’ll be followed tonight by two Literature Festival events, singer songwriter Lucy Bell at 7pm and poetry with Raise The Bar at 9pm. All events are free of charge but subject to covid19 capacity restrictions.
Tomorrow, Saturday 3 October, singer and guitarist Gareth Lemon will be bringing his acoustic covers to the Garden Bar at 5pm. Gareth’s portfolio covers all genres but he says he particularly enjoys playing ‘cheesy pop’ from the 80s, 90s and 00s. He’s followed by local poetry with Cheltenham Writes at 9pm.
