A disco featuring music from the 60s will give the musicians a break from 5.15pm before Oil Slick Fire (6pm - 7pm) and the Duckworths (8pm - 10pm) continue the live music.

The music will conclude with a 70s themed disco from 10pm.

To add a touch of authenticity the pub, voted Banbury Guardian’s Pub of the Year 2016, will be serving food and cocktails from the era.

The event is free of charge with ample parking and all donations will go to the Katharine House Hospice.
