Saturday 13 February - Norwich Arts Centre
Sunday 14 February - Gloucester Guildhall

Thursday 18 February - York The Crescent
Friday 19 February - Derby The Venue
Saturday 20 February - Shrewsbury or Folkestone or day off?

Waiting to hear from Folkestone, Norwich, Edinburgh and Shrewsbury. Handy that there are 4 dates free...

Not sure if this is a glitch on their website, but it currently shows two dates in Leicester, Tue 16th Feb and Wed 17th Feb

With Derby now on 19th Feb too, East Mids in for a right treat!

Ah yeah, the venue sent out an email earlier this week saying the new date was 16 February, then almost immediately corrected it to 17 February. D'oh!

Just Folkestone and Shrewsbury to go. We may be paused while Dave the Manager recovers from breaking his leg. If you're reading this, get well soon.

Having checked the Theatre Severn website, BSP are still down for 31 October, but the two February dates are free. Which is handy.

Hmmm...York and Derby back to back.

Could have done with Derby then York, but you can't have everything.

And still sadly, further postponement can't be ruled out.

It appears that the venue in Folkestone is also 'free' for both the open dates.

Cheers for the additional research. I guess it's feasible they might have a gig on Sunday 21 February, so we shouldn't rule that out either.

As mentioned elsewhere, Folkestone is now July 2021, the night before the Godney Gathering festival slot. It's a bit too soon to set up a festivals 2021 thread, considering the 2020 edition went down the pan.

In other good news, photos have been circulating on social media of the group doing backing vocals and laying down drum tracks. The new LP can only be months from completion :)

In not so good news, I see that The Venue in Derby didn't get any of the bail out money for grassroots arts venues, so its future is in doubt. I fear that may be the case for a lot of smaller places.

Looks like February is shot to shit now folks. Time for a new April 2021 tour thread....and let's face it, there's a good chance that'll shift too. Fuck my luck, fuck your luck, fuck everyone's luck. Anyway, for what it's worth, new thread here
