Sunday Hut make their debut at the Noels Arms on Friday. The band said: “Come on down for some good times, great music and feel good vibes all round!” Why Sunday Hut? It’s the place where the lads used to meet, jam, laugh and form the band.

Atomic Pig headline at the Genny B on Saturday. Atomic Pig are a four-piece covers band with two lead guitarists.

The Original Members gig at the Noels Arms on Sunday. A three-piece rock and pop band, something a bit different for a Sunday, but something brilliant to end an incredible month of firsts.
