MUSIC IS THE SOUL OF VDUB AT THE PUB

 

We will have 20 live bands and a hand picked team of DJ's entertaining you across three venues during the weekend.

The Main Stage

(Friday, Saturday, Sunday)

This is the 'Pub' our festival is named after, built by hand each year and for 2019 it we have upgraded this venue so it is now inside a beautiful Big Top.

The Vintage Stage

(Saturday)

This is our second stage and home to another mini pub, it is the key venue for all things vintage on Saturday - the vintage cycle ride, vintage bands, cream tea, barn dance ...

The Riverbank Acoustic Stage

(Saturday, Sunday)

The secret stage, on the bank of the River Stour, a free form jam of bands to sit on straw bales and enjoy. The home of Dave Manning and venue for our Saturday night film.

for emerging talent to get in front of an audience but we try and bring something

new, something familiar and occasionally something unexpected to the event for you to enjoy. If you know a great band that you think might suit the event please feel free to email us info@vdubatthepub.com
