The Big Wheel Blues Festival


The Big Wheel Blues Festival 2012


Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th May, 2012

The 2012 Big Wheel Blues Festival is over! It seems to have come and gone in a flash but the buzz that it has left behind, for those lucky enough to be present and also for the committee, will last a long time yet. Every year the blues festival manages to have a defining moment, a moment that makes you realise that this is a fabulous event, but this year there seem to have been so many moments over the course of the weekend that is is understandable that there is a wide swell of opinion that this years festival has been the best yet.

The committee would like to thank all of our generous sponsors - Peter Norris Music, PokerStars, Tyrer Webster Ltd, Quinn Legal, Bushy’s, The Isle of Man Arts Council and Manx Radio - along with all of the very generous supporters who give their time, effort and support freely. Without this support the Big Wheel Blues Festival would not be possible.

As always The Big Wheel Blues Festival was a fundraising event for local charities run entirely by volunteers. Money raised this year will be going to the Isle of Man Children’s Centre who were present at the festival and arranged a variety of family fun activities.

The committee will take a short time to carry out a debrief of 2012 before preparations start for the 2013 festival. After such a great festival this year and with the bar now set even higher. . . what will we do next year?!

We look forward to finding out. See you then.
