Oakstock - Mosborough's favourite free music festival


Recommended Posts

From Hip-Hop to Folk, and everything in between, there is literally an offering for all tastes this Summer at OakStock at The British Oak in Mosborough. Bring friends and family on July 4th for free from lunchtime and enjoy children's entertainment, Ten hours of live music, a Hog Roast, BBQ and Stone-baked Pizzas.


Serving award winning pies, an extensive range of craft beers from across the globe, guest ales on tap and sourcing as much of its produce locally as possible, it should come as no surprise that The British Oak selected ten local bands to play at Oakstock. Performing on an outdoor stage this years Oakstock hopes to play host to thousands, with a line-up including Ginger Tom, Sam Scherdel, Jack's Rake, Soapstone Dragon, Mat Wale and Friends, The Lost art, Spit and Strings, The Beat Bandit, The Velcro Teddy Bears and with Headline band Big Shambles (featuring Nick Banks from Pulp)


“We all know someone locally who has been affected by cancer” said General Manager Hannah Beddow. “We always love to show off our beautiful venue, especially for a great cause. We are so excited to be doing our part and to showcase our brilliant local talent”.


Previous events have raised £1000 for Macmillan Cancer Support and organisers Forum Café Bars hope the community of Mosborough will be able to achieve this figure for Oakstock.

I've always read your band to be Jakes Rake!


It's a funny old thing - some literacy related psychology going on there ... almost like people subconsciously want it to be Jake because it rhymes with rake.


I have a theory that it's a similar thing to the mental process that makes a lot of schoolkids, when presented with, for instance 5 ÷ 10 answer 2. The mind seems to want to easy it up, as it were.


But enough of that - where's the music?
