A busy summer at the Howard Arms

There’s lots going on over the next weeks, so to ensure you don’t miss anything vital, here are some dates for your diary:

Sunday 28th July:

The Wedding Crashers will be performing from 7pm – 9pm. They’re a fabulous piano/drums/vocals band with a wide repertoire, definitely something for everyone. One not to be missed – save the date!

Friday 16th August:

The wonderful Andrew James will be performing from 7-9pm on the eve of the big summer barbecue.

Saturday 17th August:

Howard Arms summer garden party with two bands, a hog roast, bouncy castle, ice cream van, and lots more. Proceedings kick off at 12.30 with the Tovey Brothers band, Doc Brown are performing from 6pm, and the barbecue starts at 6pm. Our June party was so well attended we’ve booked a bigger hog this time!

Monday 26th August:

Ilmington Show – always a highlight of the Ilmington calendar, this year will be no exception with a full afternoon of entertainment and displays of flowers, fruit and veg. Don’t leave your dogs at home, you can enter your woof into one or more of the many categories of the dog show. And when thirst or hunger gets the better of you, there’s an array of food and drink options including pig roast, barbecue, ice cream stall, tea, coffee, cake, and our very own Pimms and Aperol Spritz bar.


Once summer is over, we’ll be making sure there’s plenty to brighten up your autumn including beer and cheese tasting, game night, pie nights, and a rocking offer on our (whisper it) Christmas menu – keep an eye out for detailed information on all these events.

We look forward to seeing you soon
