Band on the Wall and Blackjack Brewery present an all-dayer of live music, independent street food and fine beers to bring this year’s Manchester Beer Week to a close!

Having toured with the likes of Status Quo, Big Country, and The Doors Alive, Good Foxy’s style is firmly rooted in the music created in the halcyon days of the 70’s; with a nod to Led Zeppelin, The Doors and Mountain, also more restrained acoustic artists like Nick Drake and Tim Buckley. Their sound is classic, but always original and eclectic.

Hailing from Lancaster, Molly Warburton started writing songs at the age of 17. Her debut LP and acclaimed single ‘Not Your Enemy’ drew inspiration from Fleetwood Mac, Simon and Garfunkel and KT Tunstall, with a contemporary twist compared to the likes of London Grammar and Hozier. Warburton’s music and live performances have delighted audiences all over the UK, Europe and the United States, with notable recent performances on the main stage at Kendal Calling festival, and Melkweg in Amsterdam.
