First visit to Edinburgh Fringe Festival for Batala
On Saturday 11th August we made our first appearance at the world’s biggest festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
A core of 16 Lancaster players alongside members of sister bands from Mersey, Bermo, Bangor, London, Bristol, Barcelona, Austria, and Portsmouth played at the city’s Mound Circle.
This highly sought after gig follows a summer including gigs ranging from local events such as Halton Millfest and Lancaster St George’s Day Parade, to huge events such as Manchester Day Parade and Kendal Calling festival.
Batala Lancaster gigs coordinator John Hammill, who made the booking, said: “this is one of the biggest gigs that we have landed to date and everyone is really excited to be playing at this amazing event.”
