The Return of Hedge

This Saturday 15th January Manchester’s Hedge night returns for a very special one-off happening at The Band on The Wall.

If you don’t know much about Hedge, it was a monthly event held in The Carlton Club in Whalley Range and ran for about 4 years. You got to see a real eclectic mix of artist, whilst enjoying cheap Polish beers and a chance to pick up some homemade CDR’s on the way out. All this took place in the faded grandeur of a Victorian cotton merchants villa.

Hedge also ran ‘Hedgefest’ a mini festival crossed with a village fete at St Margaret's Church during the summer. James Yorkston, Soy un Caballo, Rue Royal, James Blackshaw, Nancy Elizabath, David A Jaycock, Denis Jones, Liz Green , Pete Greenwood, Starless and Bible Black, The Owl Service, Travelling Band, Emma Tricca, Hannah Peel and Colorama have all played.

This Saturday’s return concert takes place at the newly refurbish Band on the Wall in the Manchester's Norther Quarter. The show features a Manchester headline show for Sam Carter, plus guest performances from Liam Bailey, Nancy Elizabeth, Aidan Smith along with Jo and her husband (who started off Hedge) as Cortina Deluxx.

In keeping with the original Carlton club vibe this will be a seated event with tables table cloths flowers and sweets on your table. Music starting at 7pm although the venue's Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open from 5.30pm for food and drinks.

As a special offer if you book your meal in advance you get a free 'lucky dip' tickets for a future concert. Fingers crossed we'll win one for the Fence collective night with King Creosote on February 25th.
