Free on Sunday

If you fancy some live music to end the weekend here are some ideas for who to see …

If you love blues, country or r&b (the proper stuff, not the modern dance nonsense) you should get to some of these gigs.

On Saturday 11th November local legends and the rockingest r’n’b band on earth, King Pleasure & the Biscuit Boys are performing at the Hideaway, Wishaw, Sutton Coldfield
