A showcase for two local bands The Ambersons and Joe Hatton providing a mixture of original material and covers.

The Ambersons are a six-piece band from Warrington that count the Beatles and Super Furry Animals among their influences. They were formed in 2007 by Andy Fairnington and songwriter Ben Ashton under the name the Magnificent Ambersons.

Four years later and the group has grown with Fairnington’s cousin and keyboard player Richard Dowling, brother and lead singer Steve Fairnington and drummer Rick McLoughlin joining the line-up.

Joe Hatton is a distinctive new alt-folk/indie artist from Warrington. Formed in October 2017, he and his 5-piece band have established a reputation and are beginning to gain a following throught the strength of their songwriting and the effectiveness of their live act.
