On 6th September 2014, The Square and Compass held the first ever Ale House Rocks Festival – 14 bands over 12 hours. It was a great success and the atmosphere in the marquee by the end of the night was tremendous.

The 2015 edition was bigger and better! Saturday 5th September saw the second Ale House Rocks Festival take place, headlined by Mercury Prize Winner Ben Ottewell (of Gomez), as well as featuring other great acts such as Matt Woosey, Patawawa, Havana Saints, The King Bains and many more. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and night!

In 2016 we’ve put on shows under the banner of ‘The Ale House Rocks Festival Presents…’ and we’re now gearing up for the 3rd edition of the main Festival, which takes place on Saturday 3rd September with local nu-disco upstarts Patawawa as our headliner.
