Was Ist Das? woodland party

If you haven’t had a look at our events page very often and didn’t listen to Podcast#6 then you not only stink but also may not be aware of the forthcoming marvel of our free Samhain celebration, deep in the woods of Hebden at the historic Blue Pig.

So, it’s Saturday 23rd October at Midgehole Working Mens Club also known as the Blue Pig, near Hardcastle Craggs in Hebden Bridge. Ian Hinton-Smith is headlining and Johnny Powell is supporting. Expect the Was Ist Das? Soundsystem in full effect.
