“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.

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.

Chairman’s Review of the year
When I took over from Mike Bunn in May last year it was with a little trepidation. He had successfully run the team for several years albeit with one little break. That trepidation soon disappeared because I quickly realised that it is the team not the Chairman that actually makes things happen.
Our meetings are fast paced and lively, suggestions flow from all quarters and decisions are taken on a democratic basis after everybody has had their say. Not all agree to everything but everybody works hard to make any decision taken, a reality. Everybody on the team has a role to play and they play it wonderfully well.
The amount and breadth of the events that we put on is truly remarkable.
Saturday 7 July 2018 from 5 pm to 10 pm
