The Local Wine Company

This year Blackthorn Music Festival are teaming up with The Local Wine Company.

The Local Wine Company is owned and managed by Craig, Graham and John who

between them have over 60 years experience in the drinks trade. As well as

supplying a large number of bars, restaurants, delis, hotels and pubs across the

Northwest of England, they have more recently embarked upon creating a number

of uniquely styled pop up bars.


Featuring at Liverpool Food and Drink Festival, Liverpool Pride and the star-studded

Spooktacular Ball the themes have ranged from the scary to the quintessentially

British, with a 1940s style bar created in St Anns Square, Manchester for both the

Spring and Summer festival of Markets 2014


Their focus is always on quality and value for money as they work closely with

independent suppliers across the country to guarantee a top level of service and

consistency. Having built strong relationships with companies such as Rekorderlig

and Westons Cider for some of their draught products the bars that they run have

always proved to be a resounding success.

Most of the wine that they stock is shipped directly to them from across Europe and

they take pride in the fact that none of their wines are commercially available,

providing a real point of difference from other companies.

O Bar 2

“Having worked in restaurants and bars for over 10 years, one of my favourite parts

of this job is the pop up bars. We are able to really enjoy ourselves and embrace the

atmosphere of each individual event as we take a lot of care in the planning and set

up of the bars. We are really looking forward to hearing some of the best up and

coming acts at Blackthorn Music Festival this year!”
