Far away/so close – the joy of intimate gigs

Bik and I popped up to Brighton this past Sunday for a wonderful night, affectionately ‘Pynnstock’ – an evening of Nick Pynn’s music, with lots of great performers on stage with him.

It was great, and we had seats quite near the front in the very large audience at the Brighton Dome.

Whilst big gigs are fab, we did notice the contrast between our intimate, close-up-and-personal gig with Nick and Kate Daisy Grant last year.

Even with our good seats, Nick looked like this on stage:

It made us really appreciate our small gigs, and be so grateful that world-class artists like Nick, Kate, Boothby Graffoe and so many others like to play here for a fee which means we can charge about the same as you’d pay to be miles away!

Take a look at our what’s on, dear reader, so that you don’t miss some of the world’s finest, up close and personal and available for a chat afterwards.

See you soon!
