April Sunday Session

21 April @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


It’s another Sunday Session filled with the usual magical Rockaway ingredients – open studios, a fantastic arts market of local artists, crafters and makers, smashing vegan roasts, and more live music.

For April, 5-piece Dr Splink will be playing their infectious original blend of ska, reggae, and funky punk. Favourably compared to The Blockheads, Madness, Dr Feelgood and The Stranglers, they’re one of the most fun festival bands around, with tracks that are ‘crafted, ingenious little melody bombs.’

The wonderful Sarah Lewis and Tracey Calvert from Normal Magic will be offering free mental health advice, alongside Dan, our friendly Rockaway social worker and bargee, who is offering free advice on how to access family support if you’re worried about the safety of someone you care about – all anonymous and off grid!

Our Sunday roasts for this Session are now available to book in advance from our Vegan Café page and include Seitan Steak in Beurre Blanc Sauce, Shepherd’s Pie, Wellington, Meatballs or Nut Roast.

This family-friendly event is free to attend, with a £5 fee for each vehicle if the Parking Field is operational. Keep an eye out for updates about parking nearer the time… Any donations you’re able to make in one of our donation buckets in the Rockaway yard – from spare change or a couple of quid to more – will help us continue providing live music at our Sunday Sessions, and is very much appreciated. Thank you.

For all the details, including how to book your Sunday roast in advance to help us avoid food waste, please visit Our Events page.
