The Golden Lion in Newcastle Under Lyme is making its first appearance in the town’s annual Jazz festival on the 27th - 30th May, a special bank holiday treat.

Saunter your way over to the High Street pub to indulge in the heavenly harmonies and traditional cask ales! The Golden Lion has christened their involvement in the festival this year with two spectacular bands set to soothe your soul and get your toes tapping, alongside other musical entertainment.

The weekend warms up with the chance for locals to sound out vocal chords on the Friday karaoke 3pm-11pm. The first band ‘The Blues Co’ play their modern rock and blues set on Saturday at 2pm followed by a Soul and Motown disco set to get your dancing shoes warmed up 7-11pm.

Jazz band ‘Bucket of Blues’ continues the bonanza on Sunday at 3pm, guaranteed to get you boogying, before polishing off the weekend with a terrific pub quiz from 6pm.

The Golden Lion will also be pouring ‘The Golden Age of Jazz,’ during the event, a specially brewed ale so named in a pre-event competition, to celebrate the pub’s involvement in the Festival. There are also drink specials from £1.99 promised too.

The spectacular new food menu is available to satisfy bellies until 7pm and what’s more puddings are two for one, just a heads up the chocolate cake is to die for! 

The Jazz festival itself has been an ongoing legendary event in Newcastle for 11 years, which involves 19 venues in the local area such as the Kiln and Yates, hosting jazz sets and bringing communities together to celebrate this genre of music.

General Manager Hannah Page said “For us, it means the world to be taking part in such a fantastic event. 
The Golden Lion has always been a place where locals come to unwind and enjoy themselves, and joining the festival means we can give something back to our loyal customers”.
