It’s a Dodgy gig in village

The beautiful village of Ribchester has a rich musical heritage and has welcomed fine musicians of many styles to its festival which has just celebrated 23 successful years.

Now the village hall will welcome arguably its biggest ever band. Dodgy, who have headlined Glastonbury and had numerous top 40 hits take to the stage on Friday August 7.

It’s quite a coup for the village to be chosen for the band’s “warm up gig” for their festival appearances and major UK tour.

Carl Barrow, from the organisers, Hollow Horse Events, explained that Dodgy contacted him in the hope that a suitable intimate venue was available in the area. After just organising the Kyla Brox / Fiona Boyes sold out concert at the same venue, the choice was an easy one to make. Dodgy played in the area a couple of years ago and told Carl they would love to return. As well as songs such as Good Enough and Staying out for the summer, the band will also be playing material from their soon to be released new album. A perfect opportunity to hear the new music before other fans, as this is their only North West appearance for the summer.

Tickets are now on sale via ticketweb at only £10 each. For further information contact Carl on 07824488410.
