Join us for a big bank holiday party in the Blue Piano garden!

Rhino & The Ranters are infamous for their high octane live sets and have been exciting audiences across the UK since they were formed by Ryan Webb in London in 2009. Their raucous delivery and on-stage charisma have won them a loyal army of fans. Their music has been described as cow-punk, gospel blues, a mixture of roots, rock n’ roll and bluegrass. Difficult to pigeonhole, their sound is simply described as ranter music!
