On Friday, the venue near Butley will be hosting a double-header gig featuring award winning artists Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar and Cambridge folk supergroup The Willows.

Alongside the music, the Froize’s usual food offering will be on hand.

Event co-organiser Lucy Sampson said: “Wantisden Valley has everything you could possibly need to enjoy a truly memorable, magical show. A great stage for the artists, a big dance floor for the energetic, plenty of seating, a well stocked bar, lots of car parking and of course, some of The Froize’s rather wonderful food.”

Tickets are £18.50 online here or by calling 01394 450282, with the doors opening at 7pm.
