Easter in the Vines goes virtual!

Riversands Easter in the Vines 2020 has been reinvented- as a virtual event! Instead of throwing up the white flag after the events forced cancellation through China flu, Riversand’s owner Alison Blacket suggested turning Easter in the vines into an on-line wine, food and music experience live into your living rooms.

The Riversands family and staff along with Patsy Toop and David Baird from "The Long & Short of It."

As a result we have organised seven bands most of whom have previously featured at Easter in the Vines to donate their time to each perform a half hour of Easter favourites and songs nominated by you. This will be live-streamed on our Riversands Facebook page, 3 pm-6.30 pm on both Easter Saturday 11th& Sunday 12thApril 2020.

Artists include Adam Kilpatrick, Cathy Drummond, Billy Bridge & Rebecca Lee Nye, Peter “Smokie” Dawson, Patsy and Dave from “The Long & Short of It,” The Missing Link band & Peta Cherae. Please nominate a song in Facebook comments that you would like them to perform. The first nominee of chosen songs will receive a complimentary bottle of Riversands Wine!
