After an extensive search to find the perfect Morrissey, the band played their first gig to an audience of avid Smiths fans. The response was spectacular and the band now plays at venues and festivals all over the UK.
Highlights include playing in front of a 2500 capacity crowd at The Manchester Academy, and to over 4000 on the main stage at Bestival and Camp Bestival.
If you never saw The Smiths then this is your chance to experience the thrill of those great songs played live. If you were lucky enough to see them first time around then prepare to relive that excitement again. Committed to getting the same energy that Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce had onstage together, the band are also obsessed about getting that live sound just right.
With an authenticity and provenance that’s hard to beat The Smiths Ltd are the ultimate tribute.
The Smiths meant everything to a generation… To us they still do.
Tickets: £12 and are available from OFS, The Old Town Hall and Online.

Hyde Park Brass Band - POSTPONED - NEW DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY
Hyde Park Brass was born in 2015 as the product of a one-off performance at the University of Leeds. The boys immediately decided there was more to the band than just one gig, and that’s where the journey began. Building their name around their home city of Leeds, Hyde Park Brass began to curate and develop a rep combining a range of varied musical inspirations. This culminated in the production of their eponymous debut album in 2018, and since then the boys have expanded nationwide, bringing their unmistakeable party style to audiences across the UK and beyond.
Tickets are £8 and are available online, The Old Town hall and OFS direct.
