Sausage Tosser 2017

Saturday 3 June
The Countryman Inn, Chipping, Near Buntingford SG9 0PG

The Hertfordshire Sausage Sizzle

Local sausages cooked over a wood barbeque by the Rustic Roaster filling the air with the smell of tasty country fare. Real Ale and a large beer garden. All cooked sausage sales and the cost of entry to the Great British Sausage Tosser will go to the charity.

The Great British Sausage Tosser

It’s a game of skill and cunning. Get a sausage in the throne without skidding and continue until you miss. You only pay for your misses – all direct hits are free. The winner has had the longest runs without a miss and can claim the title of ‘Sausage Tosser of 2017’ and receives the coveted award.

Free admission

All profits to charity for kids with special needs.
A unique and typically British event in a lovely pub garden.

Schedule for the day


12.00 Rustic Sizzle

As the sausages get fired up for the afternoon, come get your position (bring your folding chair, festival style). A selection of rustic summer barbecue songs will ring out.

13.00 – 14.00 DJ Wheelie Bag

Our resident compere and games creator will play tunes from his converted wheelie bin vinyl record player. That’s right – old 7 inch records collected from across the world including ska, hillbilly, rock and roll and country.

14.00 – 15.00 Beans and Biscuits

Local Hertfordshire Hillbilly band will play their fiddle, banjo, geetars and sing a lot about getting drunk. Terrific eclectic sound of the country BBQ

15.00 – 16.00 DJ Wheelie Bag

Picks up the party atmosphere with some great tunes and is joined by a short set from the XXX Yukele band. More frolics with DJ Wheelie Bags home made games. Audience participation is necessary.

Rev it up a little with their superb set of familiar songs which rarely get covered. A very popular band with rock-chick Becky belting out the numbers.

Presents the Great Herts Sausage Jocky Race. Bringing out the kid in us, the now famous balloon race, accompanied by an Austrialian didgeridoo.

19.00 – 20.00 Jackie Lynton Band

Brings humour and pedigree to the stage. Jackie has played and recorded with artists like the Late Rick Parfitt, Richie Blackmore, Savoy Brown and Ian Anderson. From his early success with his 1960s ‘Teddy Bears Picnic’ through the ‘Hedgehog Song’ (which brought the house down at Reading festival in the 80s), and a beautiful rendition of ‘let It Rock’, JBL has something for everyone. Not to be missed.

20.00 – 21.00 Party music

As the sun goes down.

21.00 -22.00 Nashville Teens

Original singer brings the 60s hit band to Buntingford for the first time. Their set includes their own hit Tobacco Road as well as many familiar numbers old and new.

Nothing formal here, but expect the unexpected.
