Upton upon Severn,
Two main stages, an acoustic stage and ten pub venues creating over 130 free performances in three days!
The idea for the first Upton Blues Festival was formed on the balcony of Ye Older Anchor Inn by the then landlord Stewart McEwan and one of the festival founders Richard (Dick) Tippen, whilst watching the annual Upton Jazz Festival parade pass by. They commented on the average age of the people in the jazz parade and both said we need to start a festival that appeals to a younger audience. Why not start a Blues Festival in Upton they both said? And that ladies & gentlemen is how it all began.
