The 2013 Gloucester Rhythm & Blues Festival at Café Rene

Monday 29th July to Sunday 4th August 2013

Café René in the heart of Gloucester will again be flying the R&B flag for the 2013 Gloucester Rhythm & Blues Festival. 

Situated within Greyfriars, Café René is the perfect place for this prestigious summer event in Gloucester, with not only a fabulous indoor venue but with an outdoor stage in a natural amphitheatre, perfect for performances. 

Now in its eleventh year at Café René, the Gloucester Rhythm & Blues Festival starts its exciting week of musical fulfilment on Monday 29th July with top toe-tapping musicians and bands throughout the week for seven days of great Rhythm and Blues music. 

We are proud to announce our weekend line up so far and Saturday 3rd August kicks off with DAMON T, FUNKE AND THE TWO TONE BABY, GOTCHA, LAND OF GIANTS, THE INFINITE COLLECTIVE and the mighty JOHN FAIRHURST to headline this fantastic Saturday feast of music.

Sunday 4th August will be opened by JAKE WATSON followed by THE LAWRENCE JONES BAND, THE WORRIED MEN, INNES SIBUN, AYNSLEY LISTER and widely recognised as one of the finest Blues singers CONNIE LUSH.

The grand weekend finale not only has superb musical content but more entertainment throughout Saturday and Sunday can be enjoyed with face painting for the children whilst ‘grown ups’ only can experience the Café René ‘Real Ale & Cider Festival’. Supplement your hunger with a pig roast or the famous ‘René BBQ’.

Each year the festival is FREE for all to enjoy. Throughout the week Café René help raise money through various fundraising activities for a well deserving cause to be announced, last year the sum raised was £2310.15 for Macmillan Cancer Support and we are always keen to better our fundraising efforts year on year so please do bring some sheckles for the charity buckets and help us support our chosen charity.
