ELECTRIC GIG DATES - CORRECTION
My apologies - I got the date wrong for the upcoming Electric show as part of the Vintage TV Festival at Bognor Regis: Strawbs will be playing on Saturday 3 December, not Fri 2nd as previously advised.
If you watch Vintage TV - Freeview channel 82 on UK TV (I?m a recent convert and there?s some great stuff on the channel) - you?ll see adverts for this show, with a great Strawbs picture and mention of the Strawbs leading off. Other acts on the Prog Rock stage include Curved Air, The Zombies, John Lees? Barclay James Harvest, the Enid and Karnakata. On the main stage, Heaven 17, OMD, Holly Johnson, Go West and Marc Almond are featured.
See the Festival website for details and to buy tickets:
The other date is:
Thurs 1 Dec at Cheese & Grain, Frome, no further details yet on the C&G website - keep an eye on their tickets page:
