    Southampton Engine Rooms, West Quay Road Industrial Estate, Southampton, SO15 1GZ

    Tickets £15.40 advance from The Engine Rooms box office

    We had a whale of a time last year at the Engine rooms, so we're more excited than a badger with a bag of worms to be asked back to support the legendary Wurzels. This year we're also joined by the amazing Gary Millard

    Last year, the crowd drank the place dry of cider before we even finished our set so let's hope they's got a few extra cans in this time.

    Islington Assembly Hall (Wurzels Support)


    Islington Assembly Hall, Upper Street, Islington, London.

    Tickets £15 advance from here.

    One of the gurt things about being part of the Wurzels party train is that they takes you to far-off, fancy-sounding places like Islington. We never bin there before but it's a safe bet that apple trees and barns are going to be a bit thin on the ground.  Still, never mind eh?  It's Christmas!! so grab yer dancin' wellies, put on yer cleanest flat cap and yer best 'Zummerzet' accent and party on down with the West Country Crew!

    Doors open at 7, we'll be on about 7:45 before the Wurzels unleash their gurt whopping marrows at 9. Churrz!

    Who says we can't organise a piss-up in a Brewery? Well, thanks to those magnificent bastards at The Brew Shack brewery in Wimborne, I reckon we'll soon find out... It's their second birthday and it's almost Christmas, so the obvious thing to do is thcrow a massive all-dayer with a shed-load of top-notch beer and some quality entertainment.

    We'll be there, obviously, plus support (TBC), plus stand-up comedy in association with Carl's Comedy club, all washed down with 30 beers and ciders and food provided by Flaming Peaches

    Now that sounds like a piss-up in a brewery...
