Pub revives mini music festival
Published at 09:05, Monday, 30 July 2012
AFTER an absence of a number of years, a traditional music event will return to Langley’s Cart’s Bog Inn.
Owners Stuart Davison and Jenny Porteous are reviving Bogstock Mini Festival, with local musical talent playing at the pub over two days.
The event, which will double up as a real ale festival offering customers 20 ales and ciders, will be held at the pub on Friday, August 3, and Saturday, August 4.
The opening evening will see acts The Proper Boys and The Promise entertain the crowds, with The Hairy Beavers and Three Til Midnight performing on the Saturday. The action gets under way at 6pm on both nights.
Miss Porteous said: “For us, it is quite a big thing to bring a local event back to the community, and it will make the pub more of a social place for local people to meet.”

The Miners' Hall at West Wylam was officially re-opened after undergoing extensive renovation.
Built as a cinema with a sloping floor 15 years previously, a ladies' cloakroom had been added and the floor levelled to turn it into a dance hall.
The work cost £500, half of which came from the Northumberland Miners' Association.
