Separately and together!

And on an outside stage for extra safety…

Two original punk legends team up for one of their first post lockdown gigs – perhaps the very first of all –  both desperate to get out gigging again and both with brand new releases on the go.

Performance poet and musician Attila has just had his life’s work,  ‘Heart On My Sleeve (Collected Works 1980-2020) published by Cherry Red Books. His best poems and song lyrics from 40 years, including a few written during lockdown, have been illustrated by Phill ‘Porky’ Jupitus, Womble, Dan Woods and Nick Staples and are available from all good bookstores.

This will be outside in a lovely field about 10mins walk from the Arts Centre. Ticket holders can arrive from 6pm if they’d like to bring a picnic. There’s more information below.

Venue information: to allow more people to see this performance, we’re planning to hold it in a really lovely outdoor space. Full details will be sent to ticket holders. There is very limited parking there, so please plan to walk from the centre of Ashburton – this is 10-15 minutes uphill.

For anyone with limited mobility who needs to come by car, please email to arrange access and parking if needed.

In the event that the event has to be cancelled or postponed because of very bad weather being forecast, ticket holders will be given the option of a refund or to keep the booking for the new date.

Pandemic policies. This information will be updated as things change.

Sat 15 May: From Step 3 of the UK government’s ‘roadmap’, which comes into force on Monday 17 May 2021, we are able to open to a public audience. For all events from 17 May, until further changes are announced:

  • The windows and doors of the venue will be open, allowing fresh air to be constantly moving through. This may mean that the ambient temperature is similar to outdoors, and audience members should dress accordingly.
  • All audiences will be seated in socially-distanced bubbles. Please stay seated as much as possible while inside the building.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available as well as soap and water in the toilets; please use these frequently.
  • Bar service at the Arts Centre is carried out by volunteers. If they are available at any event, they will take orders at your seat, and bring drinks to you.
  • All members of the audience must wear a facemask while indoors, except if medically exempt, or when eating or drinking. Our experience is that this is one of the things most important for making some (perhaps more vulnerable) members of the audience feel safe to attend concerts. Whatever your opinion of the efficacy of facemasks in preventing the spread of the virus, please help to reassure others, and showing that you’re thinking of them, by complying with this.
  • There are posters inside the building showing the QR code that’s connected to the NHS Track and Trace app – please use this. We will also keep a record of all ticket buyers for the required period, and pass this on to the NHS or Devon Public Health if requested.
