Bella’s 30 date birthday bash calls into The Stables

Bella Hardy: Birthday tour

Another suitably packed few days of musical produce at The Stables bursts open this evening with acclaimed folk singer Bella Hardy on the stage.

The prolific artist celebrates her 30th birthday in 2014, and has decided to mark the milestone by hitting the road and heading out on a 30-date UK tour.

It’s not the only cause for celebration either – Radio 2 have named her as their Folk Singer of the Year.

Nice work, Miss Hardy.

She will be joined by her band The Midnight Watch for tonight’s show, and with six albums to pick from, including last year’s release Battleplan, a folk-fuelled passionate performance of plenty is assured.

Bella will get brilliant on Stage 2 from 8.45pm.

In the Jim Marshall auditorium Quebec’s Le Vent du Nord will mix fiddle, guitar, accordion and hurdy-gurdy with energetic, dynamic flair.

Or how about classical-crossover ‘man band’ Tenors Unlimited and their ‘Show the Suits Who’s Boss’, tomorrow evening.

Join Scott, Paul and Jem as they perform hits from the world of opera, musical theatre and pop – together with some self-penned material from their forthcoming album.

Alternatively, skip across to

Stage 2 and enjoy the ‘introspective lyricism and inventive open tunings’ of Edinburgh-born Fraser Anderson.

There are two choices s on Saturday evening too – although tickets to see The Searchers are scant.

The pop pickers with record sales in excess of 50 million (Sweets for my Sweet, Needles and Pins and When You Walk in the Room were huge tracks) are close to selling-out, so be quick or hold your moaning.

Less Than Human will perform on Stage 2. 

In 2013 they bagged the crowd vote and the judges nod at the MMG Beds, Herts and Bucks Battle of the Bands.

Ticket-holders should expect ‘catchy vocal hooks mixed with more complex musicality set against a varied musical landscape.’

Some of you will remember the cult ITV 80s game show Knightmare. Well, it’s back...and it’s live.

On Sunday evening the show visits Wavendon, with teams of comedians guiding an audience member Dungeoneer through Lord Fear’s epic realm.

Apparently, the show will ‘recapture the essence of everyone’s favourite pre-CGI helmet based role-playing children’s television show.’

Even if GO! can’t recall it...

The venue is taking a few days off from Monday to catch its breath and compose itself...well, this gigging stuff is hard work, you know.
