Extra Cheltenham date added to Bill’s Qualmpeddler tour

Posted by Bombyx Mori on March 14th, 2013

Bill has added a new date to meet the demands of the people of Cheltenham; he will be playing the Wychwood Festival on Sunday 2 June and we are very pleased to offer discounted tickets to you for a limited time only – save 25% if you book on or before 15th March.  Just visit and enter ‘BB’ when asked, ‘Do you have a promotion or discount code?’.  We can’t guarantee that this offer will be extended, so beware The Ides of March.

If you’re attending for the whole weekend, you can expect to be entertained by more than 100 acts across indie, world and folk genres, and across 4 stages at Cheltenham Racecourse – early confirmations include The Human League, The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, Kate Nash, Caravan Palace, The Beat, John Otway, Craig Charles Funk and Soul DJ set, Sam Lee, Moulettes, Eddie & The Hotrods, Public Service Broadcasting and Mr Bloom. Add to that comedy, over 100 workshops for all ages, The Headphone Disco until the early hours, a Children’s Literature Festival, great food and Wychwood Ales, Healing Gardens, Artists and Sculpturers’ Quarter plus idyllic camping beneath the Prestbury Hills, and you have your perfect summer-opening festival.

Day and Weekend Tickets are now available (with or without camping) to the festival nominated Best Family Festival in the UK Festival Awards 8 years running – and under 10s are free (I feel for you, ten year olds).

2012 Australia and New Zealand Dates On Sale Now!

Posted by Luke on June 5th, 2012

Hello people of Australia and New Zealand.

I am delighted to announce that I’ll be re-visiting your shores this year, and really chuffed about the new show and about the new poster, which is a pastiche of a Mao era Chinese propaganda campaign. I spent a month in China earlier this year, which was a extraordinary experience and has been quite an inspiration for themes in this tour, Qualmpeddler.

Hope to see you there.
