“Be Right Back” Closing Weekend – Mr. Scruff, Agbeko, Mali Hayes & More


As you’ve probably heard, Band on the Wall is closing temporarily until September 2021. So join us for a socially distant closing weekender on 31 July – 1st August, featuring some of our favourites local artists and pals, headlined by Mr. Scruff! We’d love to throw a massive party, but it’s 2020..so this will be a chilled, laid-back affair. 

On the Friday, join us for an after-work live session on our outdoor stage from local jazz-soul vocalist Kike, followed resident DJ Jamie Groovement.

On Saturday we’ve got live sets from a rising star on the Manchester neo-soul jazz scene, Mali Hayes, plus a trio performance from our favourite local Afrobeat-inspired jazz group Agbeko. Expect some new sounds and re-arrangements.

Headlining our Saturday session is Manchester club legend Mr. Scruff. His Keep it Unreal residency has been at Band on the Wall for over ten years, so who better to bring down the curtain until we see you all again next year!

On top of all this we’ve got DJs Jim Bane (Eastern Bloc) and Andrea Trout getting the beats going from midday, so get down early!

All this plus of course more of our famous small batch gins as well as beers, wines and soft drinks, freshly made pizza and our outdoor terrace.

The Details…

As with previous weekenders, due to the need for social distancing and to keep everyone safe, we’re limiting the number of people and 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.

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. You can of course just turn up on the door too, but with limited capacity we can’t guarantee entry.

In line with latest government advice, we will have socially distanced bar service for our outdoor space, and table service available indoors. 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.
