Still time to save on tickets!

Hi all, so that you don't miss out on the option of making a £10 saving on your weekend tickets we urge you to get them booked in now as the price goes up from the 1st May.
Not yet bought your tickets, order them today!

Enjoy a weekend away from the General Election!

As we hurtle toward another round of election fever we know that you will want to get some time away from it all. What better way than to come to an election free event.
We want to provide you with a calm, fun and worry free event that will lift your heart and soothe your brow all at the same time.
We can't promise that some of our artists won't talk about politics but we will do what we can to create that little oasis of calm before it all kicks off!


What to do with the Studio Hall?
Since it's been made smaller by the multi-use facilities it's not been the same as our old Concert venue.
So let's give this idea a go!
Each day the venue will be the centre for the Folk Orchestra workshops until 11.30am. From 12.30 the room will be transformed into a speakeasy, café style room with small tables & chairs, your own bar called "Chips Bar", sumptuous decoration and lighting and a range of different things happening in a continuous mode right through till 5.30pm.
At 9pm the room will then become a relaxing easy style concert with just a couple of acts through till around 11pm.
There will be opportunities to sing, play and perform in the continuous events and we hope that it will become one of your favourite venues again.

A new venue.

We have been talking with the new Café/Bistro in town, Grounded, and they are keen to have artists play in their venue. So we have negotiated a small amount of support from them in return for some of our artists to play. They are providing the space and the audience and we will put a few acts in to make it all go wonderfully. Their food is really good and the coffee and drinks are pretty OK too.
Please do drop in and say hello to the team that will be running the venue and give them your support.
