We’re thrilled to welcome revered Sheffield songwriter and guitarist Richard Hawley to The Met for these very special intimate acoustic gigs presented as part of Independent Venue Week 2018.

A guitarist’s guitarist who has played with the likes of Pulp, Longpigs and Robbie Williams, Richard Hawley has released eight acclaimed solo albums and twice been nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music award.

Richard’s gravelly voice and lush, sweeping music performed to just 400 people in the beautiful space of The Met will make for an extraordinary experience.

Support comes from Manchester singer-songwriter Liam Frost. Liam will be playing tracks from his new album, due out this spring.
