We’re delighted to be welcoming Mr Ben & The Bens back to Manchester!

Join Mr Ben & The Bens as they embark on the their third headline UK tour around the release of the new album Who Knows Jenny Jones?

Born as a recording project in a barn in Northern Lancashire in 2012, Ben Hall recorded and self-released seven albums under the guise of a naively drawn character ‘Mr Ben’. After releasing a split EP on Bingo Records in 2017 the side project now turned live outfit with their first gig actually happening live on BBC 6 Music.

After releasing two more records with Bingo and numerous UK tours the four-piece are known for their captivating, costume clad, joyous, pop performances. Mr Ben & the Bens sound like they were baptised in water from the church of indie classics, the songs of the Lancaster Polymath echo Belle & Sebastian, Teleman, Gorkys Zygotic Mynci and a bit of Bill Ryder-Jones his genuinely great modern songwriting.

‘An intoxicating mix of perfectly fitting melodies and vocal strafes’ – Clash magazine

‘Shimmering with jangling optimism’ – Piccadilly Records

‘Perfect pop, record of the week’ – Marc Riley, BBC 6 Music
