2020 has been a massive challenge for us all, but in line with new government guidelines, we’re super excited to let you know that Band on the Wall is slowly getting back to business.
Following on from our first Socially Distant Weekender on 4th & 5th July we’re re-opening our doors again for more of our famous small batch gins as well as beers, wines and soft drinks, and of course our freshly made pizza. The outdoor terrace remains, taking over the space to the side of the venue, and a host of our favourite local DJs and friends providing chilled background tunes.
On Saturday we’re joined by Soul Central DJs and DJ Kevin Swindells, and on Sunday we welcome DJs Pablo Blanquito and La Presidenta. Expect a selection of jazz, funk, soul and deep cuts from around the world at a low volume – no dancefloor bangers just yet, but we can still be low-key vibey.
And yes, we’re well aware of the famous Manchester summer weather. We’ll have awnings and rain covers available just in case.
Due to the need for social distancing and to keep everyone safe, we are having to limit the number of people in the space, so we’re running a ‘beer festival’ format, with timed sessions and tickets booked in advance. This enables us to clear the space at regular intervals for multiple deep cleans throughout the day, manage crowds and collect names and contact information to help with the government’s track and trace advice.
Tickets are £10 per person per session – but this includes two drinks tokens! PLUS on Sunday we’re going to be extra family friendly, so for the first two sessions kids can come for free.
We know that some of you will want to stay for more than one session though, so you can either purchase for multiple sessions in advance, or ‘top up’ on the day, subject to capacity.
In line with latest government advice, we will have socially distanced bar service for our outdoor space, and table service indoors.
We can’t wait to welcome you all back!
*All groups must follow the latest government rules on social distancing and mixing of household members.
Please note that Band on the Wall is currently operating a cashless policy. We accept all major cards as well as mobile payments. Unfortunately we do not accept American Express.
