We just wanted to update you on our Christmas concert this year. We were planning to welcome Belshazzar's Feast on Friday 16 December, but due to the very sad and untimely death of Paul Sartin last month, we clearly had to think again. Obviously our thoughts are with Paul's family and friends, and bandmate Paul Hutchinson, at this inexpressibly sad time.

But we're pleased to announce that JACKIE OATES & JOHN SPIERS have agreed to step into the breach and perform for us, bringing a selection of festive songs and tunes. This feels like the most appropriate booking possible; Jackie was a great friend of Paul's, and John was, of course, a Bellowhead band-mate. COOPER & TOLLER will still get the evening underway with a short set before Jackie and John take to the stage.

All tickets for Belshazzar's Feast remain valid for this concert, including season tickets. Refunds are available by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

Anyone holding a Belshazzar's Feast ticket can apply for a refund of the difference, claim credit at our bar, or they may like to leave the difference as an extra "tip" for Jackie and John.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Huge thanks to Jackie and John for stepping in, and to Claire Patterson at GOOD HONEST MUSIC for helping us arrange this replacement at a difficult time.
