'Weird and wonderful' Live, Loud and Local Festival hits Chester on bank holiday weekend


David Triggs

A popular Chester venue hosts a celebration of 'weird and wonderful alternative talent' this bank holiday weekend.

Alexander's, in Rufus Court, is staging a Live, Loud and Local Festival on Sunday, May 28.

It follows from the success of their Not So Secret Garden Party in April, and will see more than 20 acts return to perform across three stages, from noon till midnight. 

The bill has been curated by the organisers behind Alexander’s Strange Geometry alt/psych/indie club nights, which take place on the fourth Thursday of every month. 

Indie-rock sensations Seegulls top the bill on the Strange Geometry stage. They will be preceded by the enigmatic art-pop of Liverpool’s COLOUR, the hip-hop/dream-pop crossover of multi-instrumentalist Ennio The Little Brother, and the unhinged post-punk of SPQR.

Later into the evening raucous punks Chupa Cabra will lock heads with the heady psychedelic rock of Wrexham’s The Revolutionary Spirit and Liverpool’s Ohmns. 

On the Flying Gramophone Folk & Acoustic stage, folk-rockers Nine Blind Ravens will join contemporary folk-trio The Trials Of Cato, Joel Anthony, acoustic duo Limerance and Mountainface. 

There will also be face painting from Glitterbugz Bodyart and a pop-up bar/BBQ serving Alexander's locally sourced burgers.

Wristbands are £5, under 12s get in free.
