Comedy night + food @ The Laverton
Sep 27 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

Another amazing night of comedy and a super supper to go with it!  It has been so successful for the past two years that we decided we would do it all over again.

Incredibly funny comics, courtesy of the Submarine Comedy Club from Frome will make the evening go with a bang.

Featuring David Arnold as the evening’s MC, who will be trying to keep everything under control, we are delighted that Steve James will be headlining for our show.

Steve, who describes himself at Britain’s only deaf comedian, has been performing for the past eleven years to huge laughter around the country and abroad. A hilarious, hard-of-hearing, heavenly host”  Time Out Comic’s Choice and Warm, funny, frank and thought-provoking”  The Scotsman

Also bringing their own brand of comedy to the evening will be:

This is a hilarious, high-energy, three man physical comedy so come along for a wild ride with fishing, hunting, whisky, shortbread, rhythm, folk songs and the spirit of Scotland. The boys do the Highlands incredibly and hilariously proud, making sure that the audience enjoy their trip.

Old Westbury in pictures @ The Hollies Inn
Sep 30 @ 11:00 am – Oct 6 @ 10:00 pm

If you are interested in “Then & Now“, perhaps you should wander by the Hollies Inn during the Festival fortnight.

In association with the Westbury Heritage Society, The Hollies Inn will be showing pictures of Westbury and surroundings on plasma screens during normal opening hours.

There are lots of street scenes, industrial heritage, people and places all going back to early 20th century and some beyond that. Fascinating!

Rock @ The Hollies @ The Hollies Inn
Oct 4 @ 9:00 pm – 11:00 pm

It wouldn’t be Westbury Festival if you didn’t get the opportunity to rock it at the Hollies!

Introducing ‘Open Road’ a 5 piece covers band from Somerset who play a variety of music with something for everyone – powerful pop plus rootsy rock from the sixties to the noughties.

The set lists include a range of artists from Justin Hayward, Neil Young, T-Rex, Bryan Adams to Radiohead, Pulp, Dandy Warhols and Feeder.

They appeal to a wide range of ages and differing music tastes and really know how to get the room bouncing.
