Breadstock 2022! ☀️

we’re absolutely STOKED to be able to announce this one at the end of the month. ❤️ on the Friday 27th and Saturday 28th of May, we’ll be over at our favourite place the Grafton Arms for our 2022 edition of our mini-festival “Breadstock”! 🤘

we have a HUGE lineup sorted for this, with over 20 acts performing for us – including headline slots from Harrison Rimmer Tommy Cei The Distance The Colliers Scatterchild Tragicomics and plenty plenty more! ☀️

for this, we’ll be raising money for Manchester foodbanks in association with Joseph Holt – charities that are providing fantastic work for those most in need. you can find out more about it all on their website at – it’s free entry, but we have a suggested donation of £3 to help out these charities doing essential work for their communities. 😊

we’ll announce a full lineup very soon, it’s super exciting and we’ve got some of our favourite local acts performing for us – going to be absolutely fantastic. 👊 find out more at our Facebook event Breadstock 2022! 🍞

Open mics at The Grafton & The Lass have been unreal lately! ☀️

we’re on at the Grafton every Tuesday, and the Lass every Wednesday – and from the 8th of May, we’re at Foundry Project Manchester fortnightly Sundays! get in touch with our michael webster for a slot 🍞
