After the event some of the men will make their way to Ogmore Vale Bar & Restaurant for some more musical fun for all patrons to join in with.

Also, if you pick up a festival flyer from any of the shops in the Ogmore Valley and take it along to this particular curry house on Sunday the 3rd of September you will get 10% off your meal!
