    The Old Ship, Dorchester

    7:30

    The Old Ship, 16 West High Street, Dorchester.

    Tickets: £10 from Fuelled By Cider

    Now this is a blast from the past!  The last time we played at the Old Ship it was New year's Eve 2012, there was a barrel of Cheddar Valley on the stage and the rest is all a bit hazy and vomit stained....

    And now here we are - It's 2019 and the Ship is unfurling its sails and relaunching itself with a top-notch programme of live music events. Needless to say we're dead chuffed to be asked along for the voyage.
    Special guest support act confirmed as West Country hip-hop / reggae/ primate rock dudes Monkey Bizzle!

    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.

    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.
