Home Service was the greatest British folk rock band of the eighties. Formed out of the ashes of The Albion Band, for a few short years they burned bright, singing passionate political songs that exposed the rotten heart of Thatcher’s Britain. They recorded three great albums, still beloved by fans, climaxing with the iconic Happy Jack. And then they stopped.

Now, three decades later, Home Service are back. Surviving members John Tams, Graeme Taylor, Steve King, Jon Davie, Michael Gregory, Paul Archibald, Roger Williams and Andy Findon have reunited to promote Live 1986, a new album of previously unheard live recordings. Just as powerful and committed as ever, Home Service are back in business.

Please note this event has been re-scheduled from Saturday 5 May with original tickets still valid; original ticket holders wanting refunds can claim up until Sunday 1 July
