Jeremy Hardy
- Sold out

Picture House, New Road, Hebden Bridge

8.00pm (to 10.00pm approx)

£14 (£12)

Jeremy is perhaps best remembered as a much younger man, but there is nothing he can do about that now. Still alive and able to speak unaided for lengthy periods, this show will be not so much a one-man show as an under-staffed cavalcade.

'One of the sharpest comedians on the circuit'
(The Guardian)

'Hilarious, detailed, gently self-depreciating act from a stand-up comic in complete control'
(The Independent)

'One minute lewd, the next blimpish, the next acerbic, he is always one step wide of insult and one ahead of expectation'
(The Financial Times).

Bleeding Hearts

Trades Club, Holme Street, Hebden Bridge

9.00pm (to 12 midnight approx)

£8 (£6)

'Dance to it, listen to it, can't ignore it!' A traditional guitar band with a bucketful of anger, emotion, great big tunes and a lot to say. They combine big guitars with strong vocals, plus melodic and uplifting energetic fiddle playing. Great fun! Over the past two years Bleeding Hearts have wowed Glastonbury, toured Europe and North America and supported acts such as The Darkness, The Damned, The Levellers and The Oysterband. 'Punk energised power pop with superb melodies' (Rock'n'Reel). 'Songs from an alternative fiddle-punky village where the sun always shines' (Brum Beat).
