NEXT UP...
Tenth Anniversary party
Sunday 29th April 2018
BLUES CARAVAN
Doors 7.45pm | Show 8.15pm (approx)

No support
This show will be a must-see event, throwing together three stellar artists on one bill – then letting the chemistry do the rest.
Hi everyone,
Important Notice

We are not being melodramatic but this may be the last two shows after ten years unless you can help us out. We are urgently asking for your help in making sure these final gigs are a success.

We have been going now for ten years in May. In our opinion we have put on some truly memorable shows showcasing talent from across the UK, Europe and The USA. We have been a platform for many new artists like King King who were unknown when we first put them on and now they sell out 2,000 capacity venues. Joanne Shaw-Taylor is another case in point.
 
All we require is some working capital at the end of each season in order to carry over and kick start the next season.
 
This has worked up to this year but this season it  has been a real roller coaster ranging from sell out to events where we have lost money. At present we are running at a loss and ticket sales for our last two gigs, especially the last one, are disappointing. 
 
If we lose money on these last two gigs unfortunately it will be goodbye from us which we are trying our best to avoid.
 
So all we ask is you support these gigs and try and bring a friend along and help in spreading this message around.
 
Our final two gigs are absolute gems... Please support them - this will give us the confidence to carry on.

Sunday 29th April Tenth Anniversary party
Blues Caravan Tour 2018
with Bernard Allison, Mike Zito and Vanja Sky

No support doors 7.45pm show starts approx 8.15pm 

This is a special gig to celebrate our tenth anniversary and quite simply we have brought over the cream of American Blues.
 
Bernard Allison is the son of the late great Luther Allison and has a worldwide reputation for his stunning live shows. We welcome back from Texas Mike Zito who blew everyone away when he last visited the club just over two years ago. They are joined by new girl on the block from Croatia Vanya Sky.
 
Each will perform they then all get back together for one crazy Blues jam.
 
There is no better way to celebrate our tenth anniversary.

Tickets are £16.00 in advance or £18 on the doorTickets available online from here.


Friday 11th May
from Nashville... 
Woody Pines Band

Doors 7.45pm 

Tickets are £15.00 in advance or £17 on the door. Tickets available here.

Woody Pines  brings music from the streets of America and its rich musical tapestry and heritage. He is rightly regarded as one the most upcoming young roots musicians around and now embarking on his ninth UK tour.
 
He is simply the real deal and a great end to our season.
  
This is serious roots music that’s as much a way of life as an aesthetic choice. 
Buy Tickets for All Gigs
It would be quite ironic if we reached our tenth year milestone only to have to shutdown.
 
We are not the only live music venue under threat but with your help we hope to continue. We are not giving up that readily. We have a full music programme up to December 2018 waiting in the wings and most of those have never been to the club before including touring US acts.  
 
Please support these last two shows especially Woody Pines and hopefully we can continue for a great deal longer.
 
Like you, we are  first and foremost music fans, but if these two gigs are not well supported we will have to be realistic. 
 
As we always bang on about, the simple message is keep music live and support your local music scene!

JUST KEEP MUSIC LIVE!

Warmest regards
Ian Hopkins
