Post subject: Neville Staple / The Beat - St Georges day show Bedford Reply with quote

The Beat with very special guest Neville Staple headline a massive St Georges day in Bedford on Saturday 23rd April 2011.

The gig features a 4 band bill with The Ska Masters and New Groove Formation opening up proceedings, vinyl ska and reggae dj's in the main room and a 2nd soul room with motown and classic soul. The Beat and Neville will be playing full sets.

The venue is the Corn Exchange, a great venue in the heart of Bedford, there are plenty of hotels and B & B's in walking distance for those that want to make a weekend of it.

Bedford is well linked in the uk, 90mins from Birmingham, 60 mins London, 120 mins Nottingham, 45 mins Cambridge etc, there are good road links as we are smack bang between the M1 and A1 and also on the midland mainline train route, the venue is just ten minutes from the station.

For those who don't want to stagger far here is a link to a hotel you can actually see from the Venue from! www.parkinn.co.uk/hotel-bedford Rooms from £35 for a 3 star hotel, complete with a river view!

Unusually St Georges day falls on not only a Saturday but Easter saturday on the Bank Holiday weekend making this party one serious knees up.

Tickets are on sale priced £20 advance and are available from www.seetickets.com & www.bedfordcornexchange.co.uk and are already doing a swift trade.

Local scooter club The Pilgrims are planning a big inter county ride out on the Sunday so another reason to make a weekend of it.

Hope to see a few faces!

Yep, it is the same weekend as the Int Ska festival although not sure if we clash with the English beat on the same night. The Beat are headlining as they were confirmed first, Nev will be bringing his full band, both bands will be playing full sets. After the Beat have played there may also be some addtional live music in the 2nd room going through to the small hours (if the ska masters agree to a second set! Wink )

If the Beat are headlining and Nev's band are lower down it could be all over by the time Nev leaves the stage.

Cheers for that 3 Minute Hero... better than sex though... think you might be doing it wrong mate!!! Laughing

Really privileged to be supporting Mr Staple and The Beat... reckon so long as we can keep the rhythmn section sober we'll be up for second set for the die hards in the second room. The Corn Exchange is a top venue great acoustics in there.

Hopefully sorting out a pre-party to the event also in the afternoon at a pub close by, all day full English breakfast and some live music mid afternoon! Shocked
