Hope & Glory in Liverpool

16th March 2017

James will be playing the first ever Hope & Glory festival in Liverpool this summer, headlining the Saturday night on 5th August.

According to the organisers, “the festival is set behind St. George’s Hall, in St John’s Gardens and William Brown Street where 12,500 fans can enjoy the festival while indulging in the stunning Victorian backdrop of the World Museum and City Library in a specially created arena – all within a few hundred yards walk of the main Lime Street train station.”

Weekend tickets are on sale now priced at £89 for adults. There are discounted tickets for Under-16s (£59) and Under-10s (£49); and children under five years of age may attend free of charge, but note you do need to book a ticket for them. We do not have any official inside info on potential availability of Day Tickets, but at time of writing, the event website states in the ticketing FAQs: “there will be a very limited number of day tickets available on sale much closer to the festival dates”.

Last of the summer festivals is here—and a rare bargain for families

14th September 2016

OnRoundhay in Leeds’ Roundhay Park this weekend marks the last festival of the season, and it’s a great one to bring the kids along to. Tickets for under-12s are FREE, and if you’ve older children check out the family tickets priced at £100 for two adults + two 13-16 year olds. (Adult tickets are £45 each, so effectively only a fiver each for the two teens!). It’s also meant to be a very family friendly event.

Also please note we’re sorry to announce that Adrian won’t be able to join us for this show, as his talents are committed elsewhere for the night. But not to worry—standing in for him on lead guitar we’ll have band buddy and very competent Stuart Cartwright (formerly of Scottish indie band Unkle Bob), and Stuart’s been beavering away preparing for the occasion. Please give him a warm welcome!

Update: We now have confirmed stage times for this event, James close the show on the Main Stage, and are due on from 9-10:30pm. You can find times for the other artists appearing throughout the day including Primal Scream and Wolf Alice on the OnRoundhay website.
