What The Ashes Did Next
We are delighted to confirm that The Blyth Power Ashes 2015 will take place on 28th - 31st August, and promises to be the most fabulous ever. We have a shiny new venue, namely The Hunters Inn in Longdon, near Tewkesbury. The usual galaxy of stars, cricket action, and quaint pastoral pursuits will be supplemented this year by all manner of subversive activities, including another attempt by The Dear Leader to teach young people to play music, something that is frowned upon in a day and age in which art is something that was done by sacred cows thirty years ago, and has been replaced in the Nation’s hearts by a culture of ‘heritage’
Monday sees the return of the great Blyth Power fete, so anyone wanting to do their own stall please please do!
We're awaiting final comfirmation on a couple of acts, but performers on the bill so far include: Blyth Power, Anal Beard, Pog, The Lovely Brothers, Boy in the Cupboard, James Bar Bowen, Lying Scotsman, Doctor Bongo, Cracktown, Black Kes, Curly, Fellow Travellers, Teq, The Anitpoet, Fishwife's Broadside, Refuse/All, Shanarchy, Jerry Hellfire, Mike Parker, Verbal Warning, Paul Warning, Matt Stephens, Jammy Sammy, Project Adorno, Johnny Campbell, Gob Dylan, Rachel Pantechnicon, Monkish and Wob.
We have had a fantastic time staging the Ashes at The Plough these last four years, but due to uncertainty over the venue’s future we have had to move for 2015. Thanks to Colin and all the staff there. By all accounts they plan still to be open next year, but we have to book ahead and really had no option but to get plans in place for the event.
