After a successful first outing this September, the Cottingham Folk Festival returns in summer 2016. Taking place across the August Bank Holiday Weekend in the picturesque East Yorkshire village of Cottingham near Hull, this three-day extravaganza will see an incredible line-up of artists descend on what is thought to be the largest village in the UK.

Opening up the weekend, we are very pleased to announce Chas & Dave as our first headliner. They’re heading to The Civic Hall for a good old fashioned knees up on Friday August 26th.

The duo began writing and performing songs together in 1972, having been friends since the early sixties. They reached the top twenty in 1979 with “GERTCHA” , which became a nationwide catchphrase. This was followed by “THE SIDEBOARD SONG” (GOT MY BEER IN THE SIDEBOARD HERE). In 1980 they hit the charts with “RABBIT”, which reached No. 8 in the charts and a No. 2 record in 1982 “AIN’T NO PLEASING YOU”. This was followed by further hits “MARGATE”, & “LONDON GIRLS” In 1986 they had a top six record with “SNOOKER LOOPY”

They have also written title songs for TV shows ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ and ‘Only Fools & Horses’

Tickets for the Chas & Dave concert go on sale this Friday, priced at £32.50. Weekend tickets are available now.
