Wipers warms up with bands

The 'Wipers' or Ypres Castle Inn tucked down behind the castle hosts many bands

As the dark nights set in and Rye’s low lit streets become enchanted and somewhat ghostly, the sound of music can still be heard coming from behind the castle, at the Wipers, or, officially, the Ypres Castle Inn.

The garden stage has gone with summer and the musicians have retreated inside to the warmth of a blazing fire with a full schedule planned for Christmas.

This Sunday, December 3, features the Jake Hertz duo at 4pm followed by Open Mike night next Tuesday December 5 from 8:30pm with MT Vessels on Friday December 8 from 9:30pm.

Christmas In Rye’s Toyland festival next Saturday December 9 features the Carry On Boys from 7pm with Spoilage on Friday 15 at 9:30pm and Crackdown the following Friday 22 at 9:30pm.

Christmas Eve Sunday has the Rockitmen with a Christmas party from 3:30pm and On The Level star in a New Year’s Eve party from 8pm.
