Rubella Ballet

Hagar the Womb
Hagar the Womb are a feisty frequently chaotic female-fronted punk band who formed in 1981 at London's infamous Wapping Autonomy Centre. They spent several years playing in the UK's Anarcho-Punk scene and released 2 vinyl eps and a John Peel session while they were at it. They split in the late 80s and reformed again with the original line up in 2012. Since then, they have released a vinyl retrospective on Mississippi Records and two vinyl singles on All the Madmen And Grow Your Own labels, as well as their first ever own label offering, the 25 track retrospective cd 'Hagiography' on One Bright Spark Records. They continue to grow old disgracefully and embarrass their children.

Offer an authentic street level experience of Joy Division back in the day with urgency and energy; small halls, clubs and pubs, the spirit of late 70's punk gigs... the kind of show that Joy Division spent much of their short but dynamic existence playing. Come along and decide for yourself!
Gail will be joining in on keyboards!

The Punk Rock Karaoke Band
Your chance to sing some punk rock classics with a kick-ass live band. Forming for a friend’s party a few years ago, this London based band have been kept busy since bringing DIY punk spirit and well known punk tunes to life, with audience members as the lead singer. You will be given a lyric sheet and be well supported by your band mates. Whether you want to be Iggy or Siouxsie, this is your moment to sing along from the stage or audience.

Sarah Pink's Gravediggers
Gail will be joining Sarah as backing vocalist
