Shaun Ellson – Bar Manager

Shaun joined the industry 7 years ago as a bar back as a part time job and like so many others caught the hospitality bug and never looked back.  He’s passionate about big flavours, sexy garnishes and can always be found cracking a joke. He particularly enjoys the story telling aspects of the liquor world and loves hearing the origin stories of drinks and where they came from. Shaun’s reputation precedes him in Chester as an innovator and larger than life character who is always ready to deliver delicious drinks and make everyone’s experiences the best they can be.


The team from NorthLight are proud to be opening the festival on Saturday 30th March at 11am!
