A Gig For Wee Ones, With Double Bass Dan

A Gig For Wee Ones, With Double Bass Dan

We’re very excited to welcome Double Bass Dan for a relaxed afternoon of live music for kids and their grown ups. .

For those who’ve not yet witnessed the legendary Double Bass Dan - he’s pretty big round these parts. He performs acoustic music sessions ranging from sit down sets with newborns to high energy gigs for all ages with plenty of interaction, audience participation, singing, dancing and jumping around. Sets feature a mix of his own (very brilliant) original material, nursery classics and tried & tested gems from around the world.

We thought we'd host this in the afternoon so that parents can stick around for a nice drink and a catch up, rather than having to shoot off for naps and feeds.

Live Music will be in 2 sets from 3pm-4.30pm, but feel free to come down any time from 2pm for a drink and to bag a good spot. You’re welcome to stick around after the music too. The kitchen will open at 4.30pm so you can even grab an early dinner for you and the babas.

Tickets available now on the link. £6 per child with one parent, £2 for additional adults and siblings.

Doors Open : 2pm
Live Music: 3pm-4.30pm (2 x sets)
Kitchen Opens: 4.30pm
