Asteroid Deluxe

Fantastic Planet

Asteroid Deluxe are making a name for themselves playing warped-out music to soundtrack warped-out movies. Their recent rendition of 'The Holy Mountain' in Bristol sold out in a flash. Their psych/prog is reassuringly epic and dazzlingly played. Fantastic Planet is a sci-fi animation from 1973 with surreal and mesmerising psychedelic imagery.

Frank Williams - More Tea Vicar?

Dad's Army Vicar Frank Williams invites you to join him for a hilarious afternoon/evening of TV nostalgia. David Croft and Jimmy Perry chose Frank to create the role of the wonderfully eccentric vicar who was always slightly tetchy as he tried to come to terms with the elderly platoon's invasion of his beloved church hall. Join Frank as he celebrates a lifetime on Stage, TV, Film and the legendary BBCTV series. More info and booking...
