Enjoy an evening out

Records from 1822 show that there were 17 taverns and coach inns in the local area, which was a good number for a population of just over 2,300 people. The volume of pubs and places to rest in Upton Upon Severn shows how busy and important a transport hub the area was in the 1800s. In the present day, there are less than 10 of these traditional venues left, but this is still more than enough to ensure the local population has a good level of choice to consider when looking to enjoy an evening out.

The area also hosts a number of major events over the course of the year and music lovers can appreciate a wide range of festivals and big shows. There is a jazz festival and a blues festival, both of these are held in the summer while in the spring, there is a folk festival. This provides a chance for local music lovers to enjoy new talent and established names on their own doorstep as opposed to having travel a considerable distance.

There is also a range of leisure cruises to enjoy on the River Severn so anyone looking to take life easy in the local area can do so.
