The Congakeyz will kick off the Christmas season in the Brewery Tap bar at the Hogs Back Brewery in Tongham.

They will play a festive unplugged set covering rock, soul, pop and funk hits today (Thursday).

On Saturday, The Juggernaut of Rock will headline a great night of live rock music in aid of the YoungMinds charity before jetting off to star at top apres-ski parties.

Sunday features Christmas carols with the Friary Brass Band, including singalong carols and other traditional Christmas tunes. Song sheets will be provided.

Tap favourites The TR5’s return on December 10 with a rock ’n’ roll Christmas swing. And on December 18, brilliant party band Don’t Look Now will play music ranging from rock ’n’ roll to Britpop of the 1990s and 2000s.

With the big day looming, December 23 will see the Tap welcome families for a Christmas charity quiz testing their knowledge of festive trivia.

The Tap has been refurbished with a focus on comfort, adding cosy corners, soft seating and a heated outdoor marquee. The new bar offers a wide selection of Hogs Back draught beers fresh from the cellar, including returning Christmas favourite Advent Ale, locally distilled gins and a new wine list.

Hogs Back Brewery managing director Rupert Thompson said: “Building the Brewery Tap has been a huge project for us and it’s rewarding to see it now complete in time for Christmas. We’re very proud of all we have to offer over the festive season – wonderful fresh beers, delicious local food and an amazing range of entertainment. We’re looking forward to welcoming guests between now and Christmas.”
