Bootleg Social in Blackpool is celebrating its 5th birthday with music from Strange Bones on Saturday. Support TBC.
Music at the Signature Brew Taproom on Tuesday from Human Pet, Famous and Haze.
It’s always good to spread some joy, particularly at this time of year, so the Festive Fundraiser at the Fulford Arms in York on Friday is well worth a look. Includes music from Snakerattlers, Percy and more, with proceeds going to the charity Kitchen for Everyone.
There’s more Christmas-themed fun at Retro in Manchester on Saturday, bringing together Chupa Cabra, Springfield Elementary, Swine and more.
