On Saturday 19 May, the Tandem team also welcomed live band Little Victories, finishing the week of celebrations with live entertainment on Sunday 20 May.

The bar area has also been enhanced with the addition of contemporary tiling and an improved drinks range, with additional cask ales now available as well as great existing drink offers such as two bottles for £5 and selected drinks for as little as £2.49 every day. Guests can also enjoy their drinks in the extended beer garden which features additional seating and new outdoor lighting.
