The #KeepCadstockAlive Benefit Gig at Barry Island Sports and Social Club on February 1st is completely sold out!
Thank you so much to our cracking Barry community for so strongly supporting the Fundraiser.
Please now make sure that you have your ticket with you next Saturday for a night out with the bestest Barry bands.
There are no spare tickets anywhere, no more will be released, and there is absolutely no chance of paying on the door.
We all know that the Cadstock weekender, which took place on August 17th and 18th last year, is one of the focal points of our Barry calendar.
And support for the Benefit Gig has shown again once again shown that our community events are the absolute backbone of our town.
There will also be stints from Him and Me, Falling From Grace, and Ben Nicolas. Bro Radio will host the Auction and Raffle, with Nathan Spackman as compere DJ.
Scott Walter, owner of SW Flooring, has donated the auction, and some raffle prizes – including signed boxing gloves from Barry’s Selby Brothers. The trusty Dean Snooks will be on hand to cover security.
Mack Events, who run Barry’s Summer Tribute Band Weekender, have donated a GlastonBarry Juniors Family Pass for free entry to the event at Romilly Park on Friday July 24th 2020.
If you fancy a pre-Gig pint, Butterfly Collector owner Gareth Slattery is selling special Cadstock Cask Ale – a delicious a grapefruit infused potion that sees 10p from every pint go to the Keep Cadstock Alive Campaign.
The February Fundraiser is in support of Cadstock, the best free outdoor music festival in Barry, that really needs our community to keep it alive.
The weekender, which took which will take place on July 18th and 19th this year, has the absolute ethos of being free, family-friendly, and, for everyone.
Thanks to all who have made our inclusive Cadstock the soaring success it is – this Gig is going to be a Goodie too.
