Beer, bangers and jazz at farm birthday bash

BUTCHERS think they have found the perfect recipe for a great day out: Bangers, beer and jazz.

Staff at Uncle Henry’s farm shop in Grayingham are firing up their barbecue and preparing for a day of laid back New Orleans tunes from local jazz quartet Deep South to mark their fifth birthday.

This year promises to top all previous beer and jazz festivals hosted by the farm shop, especially as it will feature the debut of a special fifth Birthday Banger.

As well as having the opportunity to enjoy new sausages created by the award winning team, including the gold winning Lincolnshire Sausage, one lucky festival goer will have the chance to make their very own batch.

Louise Jarvis, butchery manager, said: “Uncle Henry’s sausage recipe competition will challenge the more creative visitors to create their own idea of a perfect sausage recipe.”

For those who are more interested in consuming than making sausages there will be an opportunity to test their consumption capacity with a timed sausage eating competition.

The farm shop will be joined by breweries from across the county who will be showcasing their ales including Grafters from Willingham by Stow and Poachers Brewery from Hykeham.

Steve Wards, owner of Uncle Henry’s, said he was looking forwards to marking their special day.

“What more could you ask for form a Saturday in September than to be sitting sampling beer and listening to great music,” he said.

“We look forwards to welcoming back all our regular customers as well as plenty of new faces for what will be the best beer and jazz festival we have done.”

The festival runs from 11:30am to 4:30pm on Saturday September 10. Entry is free.
