Merry Hell's annual jamboree 'Merry Helloween' held at their spiritual home of The Citadel in St Helens is close to selling out (as it has done for the past few years). However, if any of you lovely Folking contributors would like to attend (no review required - though enjoyment is encouraged) then please let me know. The seating area upstairs is already sold out (though I may be able to work a little magic) but otherwise I can offer standing tickets (otherwise known as dancing tickets) plus the chance to retreat somewhere quiet and seated - though you may have to share with musicians!
If this isn't your area but you think you might like a similar option, then have a look at the list of all the MH gigs up to the C word time of year and let me know - I might struggle for Skeggy but the rest should be OK.
Thanks to all at Folking - it's been another good year so far!
