PROMOTER GRAHAM Graham Deykin is launching the Frome Rhythm & Blues Festival in March at the 850 capacity Cheese & Grain in the Somerset town.

The Pretty Things and Dr Feelgood headline the two-day event, with tickets at £35.

“We are aiming it at music fans aged from 30 to 60 and hoping it will become an annual festival,” says Deykin. “This could be the last chance to see some acts from the 1960s.”

He says Emily Eavis of Glastonbury Festival volunteers at the venue and it’s believed The Foo Fighters played there as an early warm-up to their 2017 festival performance, after having pull to out in 2015.
