EVENTS

2021 is long gone, but we're pleased to report that following our release from COVID rules in late June, we played 25+ gigs during the year and raised over £2500 for our chosen charity, St Michael's Hospice.  The photo shows us playing during their 'Hospice care week' event in October outside the Victoria Centre in Harrogate.

So now it's 2022 and we're already in April.  Winter is always a quiet time for us – but despite the weather we have been playing out of doors, specifically supporting the Little Bird Artisan Markets, held in the collonades in Valley Gardens, Harrogate.  We're signed up for all their monthly markets until August, playing at 1.00pm on the first Sunday of every month, so if you want to catch us in Harrogate, the dates are: 5th April; 1st May; 5th June; 3rd July and 7th August.

 

March was our first gig with them and I think they liked us – as the post on their Facebook page suggests!

Between now and July the diary is starting to fill up with a number of private parties and events – quite a few during the Jubilee weekend! In addition, our friends at St Michaels have asked us to support some of their collection events so we will be playing outside the Victoria Centre on the Piazza on Saturdays at 1.00pm on: 30th April; 28th May; 25th June; 16th July; 30th July; 20th August and  8th October.

This was us at the Victoria Centre last October.  Come along to join in the fun!

 

We're also appearing at the Harrogate Food Festival on the Stray in Harrogate on 26th June and at Ripley Castle on 3rd and 4th September.

Meanwhile we have a number of provisional bookings which we will post as soon as we have dates.

 

So long for now...
