we are proud to announce that we will be joined on Saturday November 17th by the amazing Tom Adams with support from Alexander Carson (singer/songwriter Wooden Arms). 

The concert is in a Baptist Chapel so unfortunately there no alcohol is allowed in the venue, but we take a 30 min interval and have a cafe and there’s a pub next door if you want to pop out and back again.    
 
Originally from Cambridge, Tom is now based in Berlin and his location and love of travel have shaped his songwriting. The concert is part of Tom’s national and European tour to launch his new album ‘Yes, sleep well death’
