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.

Update: April 2022

  • Face masks: In the Main Hall, on the ground floor, these are recommended at all times, but are optional. Anyone who sits upstairs in the balcony MUST wear a face mask – with NO exceptions (not even those who are exempt). This is to allow people who are clinically vulnerable to have a place to sit where seats are naturally separated, so: (a) to provide a place for people who want to be as distanced as possible from others, and with anyone nearby wearing a mask; (b) as virus particles when airborne are generally heavier than air, this helps to mitigate the risk of transmission from people sitting in the balcony to audience members below.
  • The windows and doors of the venue will be open, allowing fresh air to be constantly moving through. Although we have heating, this might mean that the ambient temperature is a little cooler than some might like, and audience members should dress accordingly.
  • Please, if you can, take a Lateral Flow test before coming to the Arts Centre, and if this is positive, don’t come. These tests aim to pick up anyone who is infectious at the moment of testing, so please take the test as late as possible on the same day before coming to the Arts Centre. If you test positive, a refund or transfer of your ticket to another event can be arranged, if you let us know before the start of the event, by emailing
