Introducing a brand new festival for 2018… Neighbourhood Weekender, taking place at Victoria Park Warrington on 26th & 27th May. #NBHDWKND18

SJM Concerts, which is run by former Woolston High student Simon Moran, will be hosting the event ‘featuring some of the biggest bands and hottest new artists’ on three stages on the bank holiday weekend of May 26 and 27.
