    Komedia, Bath (Wurzels Support)

    7:30pm

    Komedia, 22-23 Westgate Street, Bath, BA1 1EP

    Tickets: £16:50 from Eventbrite

    We know, we know.... it's way too early to be talking about where you're gonna go for the office Christmas party. But you know how it'll go - you'll just keep on putting it off until suddenly it's December 1st and you can't even get a table near the bogs in the local Wetherspoons.  Look, do yourself a favour, plan ahead and get a bunch of tickets for us and the Wurzies at Komedia in Bath. It's  a great little venue and cos you're in Bath, it'll be like a proper fancy night out where you won't have to step over the daytime drinkers, smoking on the steps outside 'Spoons.

    The Boldre Club

    9pm

    The Boldre Club, Pilley St, Lymington SO41 5QP

    Free entry

    It were a year ago, almost to the day that we pulled up at the Boldre Club..... It was our first time at this notorious working men's club hidden in a mysterious corner of the New Forest and we still had the ominous warnings of other bands who had played there ringing in our ears.

    'It's mental there' they said, 'Even you lot can't take on the Boldre Club' they said, 'Stick to the road lads, don't go on the moor' they said.

    We went in anyway.... and it was all these things and more!  T'were truly a king of cider swilling, barefoot stomping, cousin-touching nights.  They've asked us back again this year and even offered to put us up for the night in The Wicker Man, which is probably the local gastropub, innum.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    Free entry before 10pm, £3 after

    We're very pleased to be heading back to the south coast to play one of the best small venues in the business - Chaplins & The Cellar Bar in Boscombe. Imagine a 19th century Parisian gentleman's club, frequented by the characters from Mos Eisley Cantina, and you're on the right track...

    This gig is brought to you once again courtesy of our kind sponsors Dorset Sunshine Cider. Last year we broke the bar's record for cider sales in one night, and we are aiming to smash that again tonight!

    Every gig we have played here has been an absolute cracker with a mad-for-it crowd and lashings of booze, so if that sounds like your kind of thing then come and join the craziness...

    Tickets: Various prices, see the Cursus Cider and Music Festival website for details

    It's back! It's year 5 and it's even better than last year, which was pretty bloody amazing, so there's really no excuse for not buying a ticket, right now, for the best kick-off to the festival season that you're ever likely to meet.

    Look at that line up! Look at it!!  The Eskies! Ferocious Dog! The bloody Dreadnoughts!! And to even get to any of those three you'll have to work your way though a whole day of the best bands that those lovely people at Fueled By Cider can drag, kicking and screaming, to a field in Dorset.  Chuck in a bar full of top notch local ciders, food fresh from the farm and the company of the nicest cider-heads on earth and you know you're in for the weekend of your life

    Favourite's Field Frolics

    Favourite's Field Frolics, Buckland St Mary, Somerset

    Tickets: Various prices from favouritesfieldfrolics.co.uk

    What could be more west country bumpkin than a three day music festival in a village hall in Somerset? OK, OK, causing a three mile tailback with your tractor and muckspreader while touching up your sister-cousin who's holding a pig is actually about as west country bumpkin as you can get, but Favourite's Field Frolics in Buckland St Mary village hall is pretty close.

    For not very much money you get 2 days of music, food booze and camping, all safe in the knowledge that is can piss it down as much as it likes and you still watch a band and stay dry. Bloody Marvelous.

    We'll be getting stuck in on the Friday night, so go look at the festy website for full details of ticket prices and music line up.

    Weston Grand Pier (Wurzels Support)

    8pm

    The Grand Pier, Marine Parade, Weston-super-Mare. BS23 1AL

    Tickets: From £10 (early bird) from The Grand Pier.

    The Wurzels? Weston Pier? CIDER??? If that isn't a bleddy gurt lush west country hat-trick, we don't what is! This was a full-on, massive gig last year so this year, let's see if we can't get even more people into the pier ballroom, 40 feet above the world-famous Weston-super-Mare mud!

    Ticket prices start at a very reasonable £10 early bird standard ticket, which gets you an hour each of Skimmity action and Wurzel madness. There's also a well-stocked cider bar and a hot food stand to help you fend off the effects of that last pint of Cheddar Valley.

    Full details from The Grand Pier website.
