Yes indeed you lucky ducks!! Another spellbinding night, to be held at

Plus a lucky dip of birthday surprises!!

All this under the roof of one magnificent Victorian listed building!!


Darren Hayman and Fancy Chance – ‘Our delectable host and hostess for the evening!’

The Wave Pictures – ‘Combine the song-writing genius of Jonathan Richman, the lo-fi humility of Herman Dune and a few guitar moments that Springsteen himself would be proud of, and you get close to the underexposed marvels on display here.’

The Crisps
