For Your Musical Delight…

19:30 – 23:00
Just £10 per person.

Victor and the Bully

Join Victor and the Bully for a different type of sound with only a Ukulele, Guitar and a whole lot of thunder behind them.

Using violins, trumpets, pianos, accordions and anything they can get our greasy hands on, this pair are an oncoming storm you won’t want to stop.


Mr. B

Round off your evening with the chap hop grandmeister himself, Mr. B.

From deepest darkest Surrey, and with a decade of gentlemanly catterwalling under his belt, Mr. B brings you Chap-Hop, re-acquainting Hip-Hop with the Queen’s English from whence it came. His legendary live recitals have earned him plaudits, largely from top shelf gentlemen’s quarterlies.
