    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?

    Chaplins Cellar Bar, Bournemouth

    9pm

    Chaplins & The Cellar Bar, 529 Christchurch Road, Bournemouth. BH1 4AG

    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...
