Hey! Manchester’s 15th birthday

It certainly doesn’t feel like five years since we celebrated our 10th birthday – but the calendar doesn’t lie! On 15 February 2006 we excitedly welcomed Jens Lekman, Bill Wells and Vinny Peculiar to The Kings Arms for our first ever show. It sold out, everyone had a great night and we never looked back.

We’re celebrating this milestone today by giving away a pair of tickets to each of our 36 upcoming shows listed above (as and when they do finally happen). So to be in with a chance of seeing Andy Shauf, Erland Cooper, Joan Shelley, The Lovely Eggs, BC Camplight, Brendan Benson, Penguin Cafe, The Handsome Family, The Beths, Smoke Fairies and more¬†for free, simply fill in the form below and then keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for the results – we’ll be announcing six winners each day, starting on Thursday 18 February. Good luck!

PLEASE NOTE: This competition has now ended and the winners are being notified via email.
