This show was moved from Zebedee’s Yard to the Bonus Arena.
– Frank Turner
– Skinny Lister
– PET NEEDS
“Former singer for hardcore outfit Million Dead turned folk troubadour, Frank Turner has seen his fame flourish through, essentially, the old fashioned route – hard work, continuous gigging and word of mouth. His singer-songwriter solo career steadily grew from cult status to an arena filler, eventually playing London’s O2 and Wembley Stadium.
It has been an eventful decade for the troubadour from Winchester who now resides in Holloway, North London. Turner released his debut album, Sleep is For The Week, in 2007 and has been on a stunning upward curve ever since. He is now one of the countrys most cherished songwriters, a man who plays the biggest venues in the land and whose records reach the higher echelons of the charts but who has never lost sight of his original MO: write, record, tour, repeat.”
Frank Turner fans, hardcore fans and general music lovers will love this event packed full of alt music and it’s set to be an amazing night, grab a ticket here!

4. The Bluetones
1st September 2021 (starts at 7:30pm)
“Mark Morriss and the boys continue to go from strength to strength more than twenty years on. They appeared just as the Britpop boom was waning – which helped in getting their debut album ‘Expecting To Fly’ to the top slot in the UK charts. Musically, they endorse a tight but lithe sound, with a nod towards psychedelia, that falls somewhere between The Stone Roses, classic pop and a little touch of Oasis swagger.”
Brit-pop fans will be excited to know The Bluetones are performing their debut album “Expecting to Fly” at the 25th anniversary event at Social on Humber Street.
