Some exciting news....

Friday 25th May -
Home Service will play a rare and what will be a one-off show at the Hailsham Pavilion....

Led by John Tams (he (of amongst many things) of War Horse fame) this is a reunion of the classic band
of the mid-1980's that has come about after the recent discovery of some previously unheard live recordings
mainly observing the unfairness of Thatcherite Britain and its social inequalities.

The crushing irony is that they sound as potent now as they did then.......

There was just a handful of festival performances last year but the band made such an impact that they have been
Nominated for Best Group and Best Live Act.... at the 2012 BBC Folk Awards (Wednesday 8th February)

It is an eight piece band so sorry seats are £22.50 -
Booking opens next Tuesday 31st January
01323 841414 or on-line at
