This is the now annual evening when we let go of the ropes and hand them to the up and coming talent from Newcastle Uni. We'll give  more information about who will be performing soon but be prepared for lots of youthful enthusiasm and some breathtaking talent! 

Vin Garbutt
(2.12.17) Vin Garbutt

Vin had to cancel his last gig with us for pre-arranged surgery, but he's now fit and well again and in great form. He is quite simply the biggest draw on the British folk scene and a huge name around the world, too. The Teessider has his own brand of off-the-wall humour which he blends with some of the most heart-rending songs you'll ever hear. Come and see a master at work!
