Tom Robinson Up Close and Personal in Harlow

As long time fans of Tom as leader of the TRB, solo artist, campaigner and broadcaster, we are beyond excited to be bringing this show to Harlow!

Thursday 2nd November 2023 – Burnt Mill Snooker & Social Club, Harlow, Essex

Musician and broadcaster Tom Robinson presents an evening of songs and stories spanning five decades of adventures in the music industry.

Tom’s musical journey began in 1974 when his first band was discovered by Ray Davies, and included a BBC ban for being Glad To be Gay, rocking against racism alongside The Clash, headlining Glastonbury with Peter Gabriel, writing lyrics for Elton John, drug smuggling in East Germany, two nervous breakdowns and a period in tabloid hell after falling in love with a woman.

Having made his peace with the BBC, he’s presented programmes on all the corporation’s national radio networks, and his broadcasting work has won two Sony Radio Academy awards.

Expect intimate versions of classics such as War Baby, Glad To Be Gay and 2-4-6-8 Motorway alongside stories from behind the scenes and a sprinkling of fan favourites from his extensive back catalogue.


The Big Easter Weekend!

Black Wax have teamed up with Redchurch Brewery, John Mann and The Spirit of The Square to present a full long weekend of live entertainment.

Thursday 6th April
Comedy night with Clinton Baptiste, Louie Green and Aideen McQueen, hosted by John Mann.

We’re over the moon that paranormal sensation Clinton Baptiste will be taking us on a hilarious yet touching journey through his life, out the other side and beyond the Celestial Curtains.

Clinton Baptiste is the hapless clairvoyant, medium and psychic from Peter Kay’s smash hit Channel 4 TV show Phoenix Nights.

Clinton will give readings to the audience, offering advice from beyond the grave. He will predict your future, tell you about your past and all manner of spooky stuff an’ that.

“Hundreds of years ago when a man walked the planet he had no real means of communication. In time man developed phenomena which has never been fully understood by the psychic community. This phenomena is… Clinton Baptiste” – Peter Kay


Friday 7th April (Good Friday)
Live music with The Small Fakers (Small Faces tribute) and guests

Firm favourites with Harlow’s mod and 60s fans, the Small Fakers first played in Harlow at The Square in 2008, and have played in town at least once every year since, except 2022.

So we’re putting that right and bringing them to perform in the heart of the brewery for a very good Friday.


Saturday 8th April
Live music with Don’t Worry, The Bonnevilles + Fell and The Fallen

Local band Don’t Worry play their first full band hometown show since 2019. That last performance was part of The Square’s summer reunion event at Harlow Rugby club where they headlined the indoor stage. Having released their 2nd album Remorseless Swing in 2022, supported by a UK tour and airplay from Steve Lamacq on BBC 6music, we’re pleased to be hosting them back in Harlow.

They’ll be joined by Northern Irelands finest exports of garage punk blues – The Bonnevilles!

A last min opportunity to host them on their UK tour couldn’t be passed up so you’ve now got two headliners for the price of one!


All events take place at Redchurch Brewery 15-16 Mead Park Industrial Estate, Harlow, Essex CM20 2SE

The BellRays Rock Around The Hops!


Rock Around The Hops at Redchurch Brewery

California’s Punk Funk Rock and Rollers will be playing live in the heart of a working brewery on Thursday 3rd November and you need to be there.

 It’s all about emotion and energy, experience and raw talent, spirit and intellect. Exciting things happen when these things collide.

Bob Vennum and Lisa Kekaula made the BellRays happen in 1991 in East LA but they weren’t really thinking about any of this then. They wanted to play music and they wanted it to feel good. They wanted people to WANT to get up, to NEED to get up and check out what was going on. Form an opinion. React.

So they took everything they knew about; the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, the Who, the Ramones, Billie Holiday, Lou Rawls, Hank Williams, the DB’s, Jimmy Reed, Led Zeppelin, to name a very few and pressed it into service.

It was never about coming up with a ‘sound’, or fitting in with a scene. It was about the energy that made all that music so irresistible.

PRB and Black Wax present

The Len Price 3 back in Harlow

Black Wax favourites The Len Price 3 return to Harlow. The Medway trio tour in support of their brand new album Ip Dip Do and play Burnt Mill Snooker & Social Club on Friday 15th July.

Support on the night from The Vera’s making their Harlow debut – you’ll recognise them as The Small Fakers but playing their own material.


Introducing His Lordship!


His Lordship, the new project from guitarist James Walbourne (The Pretenders, The Pogues, The Rails) and Kristoffer Sonne (Chrissie Hynde, Willie Nelson) have announced their first UK tour, kicking off with their rescheduled, sold out show at The Lexington on 20th April and taking in 11 cities across the UK, including a Harlow show at Burnt Mill Snooker & Social Club on 28th May. Already having made an indelible mark on London’s live scene, His Lordship is the sound of Walbourne unleashed as a frontman; a furious riot of raging guitar and perverted drums from another dimension.

In addition to the tour, the duo also announce their debut EP, a one take collection of rock ‘n’ roll covers, which came together in one evening after a long day of recording original songs (also coming soon). Deciding to let loose, they kept the tape rolling and filmed a set of rock’n’roll tunes they like to play. They didn’t even rehearse them. The finished EP is a first take 15 minute set of Stuff They Like. Gene Vincent, Jack Scott, Link Wray and The Killer.

The EP will be released on 16th April digitally, with a vinyl release to follow on Psychonaut Sounds.

Black Wax promoter Adam Smith – “I’m really pleased to be able to include a Harlow show as part of His Lordship’s first national tour. This is exactly the kind of show I’d have booked at The Square, and I’m keen to keep that spirit alive by using suitable venues in town. This show at Burnt Mill Social Club will be one of the highlights of the local live music calendar this year – don’t miss it!”

King Salami & The Cumberland 3 + The Mandelbrot Shakes

London’s greatest and most sensational Rhythm’n’Blues-Punk band. A band that truly represents London, being a mongrel mix of Caribbean, France, Japan and Spain. With a repertoire influenced by many of the great songs of the ’50s and ’60s made to sound fresh and new to modern ears, you won’t be able to help but move your feet when the Cumberland Three are blasting out of the speakers. The King howls like Screaming Jay Hawkins with Bo Diddley chasing his coat-tail whilst Andre Williams tries to offer up some of his bacon fat, and the Trashmen do the Surfin’ Bird behind him. This is a man that never stops shakin’ and twistin’ and groovin’.

Support from Brighton’s The Mandelbrot Shakes
