Following on from their smash-hit one-day music festival at The Foxlowe Arts Centre in May, Leek's own not-for-profit music promoters The Situation are back with their Big Summer Barbecue, a half-day celebration of local music, plus barbecue and beer-festival.

The Situation's Simon Edwards said: "We were absolutely blown away by the success of our Big May Birthday, and wanted to do it all again, as soon as possible, albeit on a slightly smaller scale."

Taking place at The Foxlowe Arts Centre, which is situated at the top of Leek's Market Place, on Saturday (August 2), the event will run from 4pm through to midnight.

This event promises to be a lovely summer evening of fantastic music, food and beer, featuring a celebration of song-craft from the Midlands and North West, with a broad range of talent.

The music starts on the patio area, with acoustic sets from Frank Macowski, Dom Morgan, Matt Henshaw and Ghost Trains.

Get your dinner at the barbecue and wash it down with a selection of guest ales. The music will then head indoors for five sets of musical excellence featuring The Junipers, The Rivertairs, Electroshock Therapy and Blossoms.

Headlining the event are Leek's own rising indie giants Delamere. Steve Hammersley, The Situation's Band Booker, said: "It's not going to be 'mad' or 'mental' or 'banging'. No, it's just going to be super-chilled, super-cool and uber-excellent."

The Situation's Andy Norton added: "You really should get your tickets in advance, if possible, as this is going to be a very popular event.

An advance ticket costs £5 via the online link – http://www.wegottickets.com/event/280511, or people can pay £6 on the door.

Under 18s go free as usual and families are most welcome.
