A joyous celebration of Cajun, Creole and Louisiana roots music, dance and culture set in the heart of the beautiful North Shropshire Lakelands!
13th - 15th August 2021
We are proud to present a rich variety of music, dancing and cuisine at this year’s Big Weekend festival. Featuring the very best of our own homegrown UK Cajun & Zydeco bands– a truly hot and spicy Gumbo of dancing delight!
We are very confident that the new proposed date for the lifting of Covid restrictions on the 19th July still gives us plenty of time to safely go ahead with the Big Weekend in August.
We will of course follow whatever new government guidelines emerge on the 19th, but in addition we will be implementing our own festival advice and guidelines to keep our festival goers safe and reassured throughout the weekend.
And if that’s not enough, we can also offer you:
- Cajun & Zydeco dance workshops
- Festival campsite and late-night camp fire area including the festival tent which will be hosting jam sessions, workshops and informal gatherings.
- Jam sessions in the bar area lead by prominent UK Cajun & Zydeco musicians to keep the party rolling
We look forward to welcoming you to the hottest weekend of Louisiana roots music, dance and cuisine on the UK Summer calendar!
