Paul Foot
Hovercraft Symphony in Gammon # Major

Tuesday 14 Oct, 8.00pm
Heralded by critics, Paul’s previous tours have been showered with five-star reviews and nominations, credited as ‘masterful’ and ‘ingenious’. His subversive, insightful absurdity constantly challenges and delights his faithful connoisseurs, and gathers new fans. His most recent TV credits include Would I Lie To You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and 8 Out Of 10 Cats. Don’t miss your chance to see what the Daily Express called ‘a cult classic, a relic from the past, a rare exotic bird’.

"it's baffling to me that Paul is not a household name in this country" Noel Fielding



  Andy Fairweather Low & The Low Riders
Zone-O-Tone Tour

Wednesday 15 Oct, 7.30pm
Andy’s pedigree is the stuff of rock dreams. As lead singer in 60's pop heart throbs Amen Corner, he clocked-up hit after pop hit (Bend Me Shape Me, If Paradise is Half As Nice); a successful solo career followed, including the hit Wide Eyed & Legless. Since then, as a top-drawer session player he has worked with Eric Clapton (for 20 years), George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Elton John, The Who... and hundreds more household names. Now following a solo path, together with a top-notch band, his show is a riot of blues, country, surf, gospel, his own solo material and a bunch of the old hits.
