    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!

    Skimmity Hitchers Xmas Party


    Baggator/The Pickle Factory, 13, All Hallows Road, Bristol BS50HH

    Tickets £15 advance from the Fuelled By Cider Shoppe

    After the sell-out success of last year's alternative office party we have decided to get stuck in again for 2017. It's at the same venue, Baggator Pickle-Factory in Easton, but with a whole lot of new twists and treats.

    This year's theme is 'Hawaiian Beach Party' and prizes will be awarded to the best dressed hula girls and boys. You'll be able to visit Santa in his sandy grotto, throw stuff at Donald Trump and also enjoy the delights of Elvis the Karaoke Gorilla (he's not from Hawaii, we just couldn't say no!).

    Live music will be provided by The Skimmity Hitchers and their luvverly Scrumpy & Western cousin Corky.

    Throw in some DJ action, prize raffle and a fully stocked bar and we think you'll agree it'll trample on any other pre-Xmas night out that you might have planned.

    Larger groups of colleagues, friends, etc are warmly welcomed as well as individual party-goers.

    Tickets available from http://fuelledby.bigcartel.com/product/skimmity-hitchers-christmas-party-15th-december . Please message us if you wish to ask questions or discuss particular requirements.

    This party is brought to you in conjunction with Fuelled By Cider and will be raising money for Feeding Dreams Cambodia.

    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...

    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

    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!

    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!
