    Chaplin's Cellar Bar, Bournemouth


    Chaplin's Cellar Bar, 529 Christchurch Road, Boscombe, Bournemouth, HAMPSHIRE. BH1 4AG

    Free entry before 10pm, £3 after.

    We just can't stay away from this place....Even though it's in Bournemouth (which is in HAMPSHIRE!!), for some reason it's like an oasis which attracts only non-tossers. It helps that the bar looks like a 1920's Absinthe den and it serves a decent range of local ales and ciders and has the best beer garden on the country (and possibly the northern hemisphere).

    Either way, every night is party night in the Cellar Bar so get down there early and get yer freak on.

    Event/bar details be here.

    Tickets £14 advance, £16 on the door. Tickets available from the Electric Palace

    It's always a pleasure to support the Wurzels as they stagger across the west country - but tonight, they're on our patch... maybe we'll sneak Lambo into their dressing room and let him loose on their rider, or maybe we'll convince them that Guyer is mayor of Bridport and that the last day of March is Bridport's official 'ladies day'...

    Or maybe we'll just sing a load of songs about cider, sheep and farming equipment.... Either way, it's be fun and we'll all get smashed - see you down the front!

    It's a tough job to match the line-up of previous years but we think we've done the business once again with the amazing talents of festival folk-rockers Imprints and Dorset's accordion-punk whippersnappers Sinful Maggie.

    Lovely venue, big stage, live music, lots of cider and the best crowd in the South West... put the date in your diary!

    Is there anything more West Country than a Wurzels gig on Weston Pier with a ton of cider on the bar?

    No, we can't think of anything either....

    So, here it is - the single most west country thing you can do this year, unless you're actually shacked up with Sedge Moore from the Wurzels. Get yer tickets before 1st January 2018 and score the early bird bargain price of £10 per ticket for a standard or £20 for a VIP version.  We're not really sure what you get for your VIP ticket, but we suspect it may involve Sedge Moore and  6 pints of Devon clotted cream.  Lucky you!
