Joining our resident DJ Max Galactic on the decks will be rising star and BBC Introducing regular Honey B McKenna and the phenomenal DJ Emma: she's been tearing up dancefloors across the country over the last couple of years. Emma absolutely smashed it at HowTheLightGetsIn for us back in May and spends most weekends DJing alongside Craig Charles or at tip-top festivals like WeOutHere, Camp Bestival and Creamfields, as well as hosting her own BBC radio show. Boom!
On top of all that, we'll have the delightful BooLaCroux hosting affairs, welcoming you at the door and generally presiding over the madness!
We'll be warming things up with a pre-party at The Three Tuns with a live set from DJ Danny Graham and more cocktails and pizzas than you can shake a large glow stick at.
Our last two parties sold out well in advance, so grab your tickets ASAP. Once they're gone, they are gone!
1pm- 2:45pm Free Entry, Donations Encouraged
“His relaxed vocals and songwriting are as warm and open as his tunings” 8/10 Uncut Magazine.
“What Parker does so effectively is to blend ancient with early-70’s and modern styles” Mojo ★★★★
“Focussing on the seasons is an eternal feature of English folk music and the tradition is well tended here.” Shindig! ★★★★
“Channelling the ghosts of Jansch and Renbourn through his fingertips, the fluid playing and emotive singing of Yorkshire-born Henry Parker evokes the spirit of the early-60s folk revival as if it were yesterday.” RnR Magazine ★★★★★
With his eco-conscious debut album ‘Silent Spring’ (2019), Henry Parker laid down a new sound for modern folk music, drawing deep from the well of the sixties and seventies revival. His style is a clear joining of the past and the present, a unique voice in the folk world that echoes with sounds of the tradition whilst venturing beyond into the realms of folk-rock and psych.

"really excellent … he takes very real things, normal things that happen in life, and he writes about them in a way that makes you think afresh about them" - Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2
There is no one in music quite like Mark Harrison. He is widely considered one of the most original and interesting artists currently operating in the UK. His highly individual, all-original music goes down very well with audiences of all kinds, and it has taken him and his band (consisting of some of the UK’s top roots musicians) to some of the top venues and festivals in the UK, attracting acclaim wherever he goes. Recent appearances on BBC Radio 2, as guest on Cerys Matthews’s show and on Anneka Rice’s Pick Of The Week show, have further added to his growing reputation.
Described at BBC Radio 2 as ‘quirky’ and an artist who ‘makes you think afresh’, and by one eminent reviewer as ‘approaching national treasure status’, Mark is a totally original songwriter, a stunning guitarist, and a master storyteller. Mark’s live shows are well-known not only for the music but also for his introductions and explanations of the songs, and audiences frequently comment on how big a part these play in their enjoyment of the shows. Delivered in a manner often described as ‘wry’ and ‘dry’, these mark him out even more as a unique artist.
"fresh as morning sunshine and as sharp as a well-honed razor'" - Folkwords
Mark is a songster, and his songs cover all manner of non-standard subjects. With catchy tunes, lyrics than intrigue and engage, and striking rhythms, they make you smile, think and move. He takes elements of roots music, including folk, blues and gospel, to create something new that is very much his own genre. Each song is a snapshot of life or has a story to tell, like a 3-minute film or novel.
A thrilling, rhythmic, finger-picker and slide player, with a very distinctive style. Mark tours extensively. He has appeared at top festivals such as Celtic Connections, Bearded Theory, The Great British Folk Festival, Lakefest and Jazz FM Love Supreme and at prestigious venues all over the UK. He has released six albums which have been unanimously acclaimed across a wide range of areas of the music world, receiving a very great deal of airplay and highly enthusiastic reviews in the UK, Europe and the US.
"Mark Harrison keeps getting better" - Classic Rock Magazine
After four years the Globe welcomes back Junior Bill for what we are sure will be another memorable evening of music and dancing. Honed in their local youth club, Junior Bill's streetwise sound brings together the disparate influences of frontman and songwriter Rob Nichols ,from Lee Scratch Perry to Caetano Veloso. The set is peppered with catchy, astute and socially aware pop songs that nod to the likes of Elvis Costello, Pete Doherty and Jamie T. Their upcoming album, Youth Club! is a nostalgic paean to the places where the band spent their teens and were given the space to develop as musicians. Its blend of hi life, calypso, latin, reggae and soul forms a colourful backdrop to Rob's social commentary. As a live band, however, they become a blood and guts four piece, spitting witticisms into the mics with soulful joy and intensity.
Danny Goffey (Supergrass) - "One of my favourite bands is Junior Bill, who touch on a sound that is not heard any more"
Tom Robinson (6 Music) - "Everybody's talking about Junior Bill. A real grass-roots sound, instantly"
