Special thanks to Jacqui Woolward RIP, for providing the family entertainment for the High Street

Elaine LaRoche RIP xx

Phil Hall RIP xx

…and anyone else I’ve missed out, the biggest of Love

G says – “Support your local music scene, support your venues and support those that struggle to support themselves” xx


The Balstock committee would also like to extend an extra massive show of gratitude to all the musicians and performers who applied and gave their time completely for free, in the name of charity and good vibes. Without you guys we’d have 12 empty stages and empty buckets!
I’d also like to apologize to those that applied who I couldn’t find spaces for. It’s heartbreaking turning acts down who are eager to play.
Please let us know below who you really enjoyed seeing perform, and if you discovered any new favorite local bands, go give their FB page a like and comment below. SUPPORT LOCAL LIVE MUSIC – get down Club 85 and the various music pubs and keep this scene thriving. We really are spoilt for talent in this area.
