Home Service in Concert

Friday 28th September. 8pm

The Maltings, Bridge Square, Farnham. GU9 7SZ

Briefly during the 1980s the finest rock?n'folk ensemble in the known universe were the mighty Home Service. All those who attended their performances fondly remember the power and the glory of this majestic band in full flight. The release of an old live recording in 2011 inspired the band to reform - to enormous critical acclaim and the 2012 BBC Radio 2 "Live Band" award. They have lost none of their power not their majesty.

The Big Green Cardigan  
7th-9th September.
Cripps Corner, East Sussex

The 2nd Big Green Cardigan festival kicks off this Friday - and if you are looking to chill out and while away the end of summer days and evenings, this is just the place. The Big Green Cardigan policy and philosophy is intimate, chilled, relaxed and not big and brash, with the full festival experience just down the road. From early morning yoga to an all-night caf? and a wine bar, supplied by Sedlescombe Vineyard

There will be lots of music, no distinctive style, the theme is 'there is no theme' on our 2 stages which includes blues to Americana to jazz. So what?s on? Roachford whose top 10 hits include ?Cuddly Toy? and ?Family man? and this year has gigs across Europe and has visited the Isle of Wight Festival.  Achanak, the pioneers of new wave bhangra. They have played all the major festivals worldwide including Glastonbury, Womad and not least, 5 times at our own Black Horse Festival. If you've seen them before you know what's coming, if you haven't don?t miss it! There is a touch of medieval rock with Circulus, the uncategoriseable Randolph Matthews and a bit of late night Jazz. Throw in a plethora of local acts including 'Expandis', Roger Hubbard, Otti, Anita Jardine, Sam Calver and Zoe Konez to name but a few.
Full line-up and times available at

Whether it is your end of festival season festival or you have never been to a festival, The Big Green Cardigan is a perfect way to conclude your summer diary before the winter sets in. Be brave and experience talented artists playing original music.
