Hi Everybody

Two months collide this month, very much in the manner of somebody looking at their phone without looking where they're going.

And it's (sort of) with that spirit in mind we tell you about all that's happening at the Rising Sun this weekend

This time around, we're pleased as punch to be part of INDEPENDENT VENUE WEEK!

Independent Venue Week is a 7-day celebration of small music venues around the UK and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out. It’s supported using public funding by Arts Council England, bringing together great venues across the land along with breaking and established artists, promoters, labels, media, bloggers and tastemakers to create a nationwide series of gigs at the end of January.

We're proud to be laying host all weekend. It's the fifth successive year that Club Velocity and the Rising Sun have been involved, and you can find out more at https://www.independentvenueweek.com
