Portland Ballroom

It's gonna be cool...

Chill out with a beverage of arctic proportions from the Portland Arms Bar, and gyrate to sixteen of probably the ‘Coolest’ Bands and Singer-Songwriters on the planet at the glacial Portland Polar Ballroom.

The Acoustic Marquee has been a major part of Strawberry Fair for many years. It is the largest indoor area onsite, where you can not only listen to great music, but also enjoy fine drinks from the excellent bar.

This is the third year the Marquee has been called the Portland Ballroom, due to the great community support provided by the Portland Arms who will again provide the bar in the marquee. 

The Portland Ballroom stage will again be presented by ‘Rhythm at the River’ who have been providing excellent acoustic events in Cambridgeshire for several years.

This year’s line up will, as always, feature an eclectic line-up of up and coming artists, the cream of local artists and maybe a surprise or two (there have been one or two well-known names in the line-up over the years!). It will feature ten hours of acoustic performances from some of the best local singer/songwriters and bands (stripped down) in the area.

Big thanks again this year to Blueshed Studios who will be providing superb Sound and Lighting management for the stage, and to Barton Studios for again supplying the drum kit :)

We will be decorating the marquee in line with the Fair's overall theme 'Wildlife' and everyone is encouraged to come along dressed up for the 'Portland Polar Ballroom's' Polar habitat!
