NovemberFest kicks off with a fun evening from local band Barleycorn Hop who specialise in skiffle music from the Lonnie Donegan era, mixed with Irish and popular folk song songs . Comprise of 2 couples ...Richie and Margaret Millington together with Tony and Gill Kensall will have you foot tapping the night away and perhaps joining in on the odd number whilst you enjoy their accordion, guitar, banjo, mandolin and of course ....washboard!

The Tegeingl Band... are a bunch of musicians playing whistle, accordion, guitar, mandolin, banjo and cahon (bum drum) and responsible for the Tegeingl festival held in Mold every 2 years.

Saturday 24th November; Sixties spectacular; 18:00 - 22:00

Backbeat are a duo going back for many years covering songs of the 60s from Buddy Holly to the Beatles with quite a few Rolling Stones , Kinks and other popular 60's tracks for good measure . Dai Nicolas plays all the fancy stuff on his Telecaster / Stratocaster (depends on which he fancies for the night) and even throws in the odd Shadows hit now and again . Tony Kensall plays the rhythm and both like to use lots of harmony to make them sound like a big band !!!  

NovemberFest is also pleased to welcome the award winning performer Steve Tempo back to Mold following his successful appearance at the town's Diamond Jubilee celebrations. He is performing prior to his main event at the Ruthin Castle pub in New Street.

Sunday 25th November; Easy listening with The Trotters; 12 noon - 15:00
