Ben Pryor and The Lucky Dogs

Combining elements from the 50’s and 60’s that made all the records we love so great, but giving them a modern polish to create a perfect balance of vintage and modern.

Performing hits from legends like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and Buddy Holly, There is no other band that can channel the electrifying energy from the legends themselves. Even though they are young, They have already headlined a stage at Victorious Festival, Became the recommended artist at Southdowns Manor, Played with over 100 shows in 2017 and are swiftly becoming the UK’s next sensation!

Knockhundred Shuttles Morris Dancers

Many people associate Morris Dancing with the hanky waving and stick clashing dances which come from in and around the Cotswolds, but lots of areas of England had their own, very different versions. Knockhundred Shuttles perform dances which owe their origins to the industrial northwest of England.

Some of the dances we perform are traditional and may have been used by the mill workers in carnival processions or even in competitions between local sides. In Knockhundred we’re lucky to have people with the skills needed to write new dances and some dances written in last 10 years or so have become firm favourites with dancers and audiences alike.

Saturday, from 8pm
