“Raucous and eclectic, sheer merriment in a gorgeous set of ideas and influences, guaranteed to leave you smiling from ear to ear.” – **** SONGLINES

“One of the most exciting and eclectic musical groups I have heard for a very long time.” – ROCK SOCIETY

The Bonfire Radicals blend gorgeous medieval and Celtic folk, dynamic eastern European jazz-swing and punchy world-beats into a unique sonic identity that truly beguiles.

Armed with emotive vocals, melodic classical recorders and woodwind, electrifying fiddle, and a tight rocking rhythm section, theirs is a boldly original and highly-spirited, at times gloriously chaotic, live stage show.

Check them out at or on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

A comic investigation into an 80s childhood haunting where nothing is quite what it seems.

“It’s 1986. I am eight years old.

Prince Andrew and Fergie get married in the summer. Dirty Den serves Angie divorce papers on Christmas Day. And I’m sharing my bedroom with a KitKat-pinching ghost.”

Inspired by his favourite film, little Gareth became a self-appointed Ghostbuster, launching an investigation into a playful poltergeist. Now, three decades later, with the help of home videos, retro toys and interviews with his nearest and dearest, grown-up Gareth is determined to uncover what was really going on inside his very own haunted house.

Join us for a nostalgic trip back to the 80s and a comic exploration of a childhood haunting where nothing is quite what it seems — all wrapped up in some formidable fashions, stuffed with sweet treats and set to a cheese-tastic chart-topping soundtrack.
