Tavistock’s great live music and arts venue is back in the game now restrictions have been lifted and its first offering is The South this Thursday (August 19)

With the coronavirus pandemic putting a stop to live music around the world for most of 2020/21, it is with a huge sigh that The South are back on the road doing what they do best - performing the songs of that great British pop institution, The Beautiful South, to the thousands of fans of these timeless classics.


The South are an impressive nine piece band who feature former members of The Beautiful South including singer Alison Wheeler and lifelong sax player Gaz Birtles.  Since Dave Hemingway, the original singer, left the group at the end of 2016, Gaz has moved across to front the band with Alison and taken on vocal duties.


Since the demise of The Beautiful South in 2007, this exciting live band have spent 11 years touring the theatres and festivals of the UK up and down the country, bringing back the full sound and arrangements of these treasured songs -  A Little Time (the number one single), Perfect 10, Rotterdam, Song For Whoever, Old Red Eyes Is Back, Good as Gold, Don’t Marry Her plus many more singles and album tracks as well as a few choice South originals.   

These songs span an impressive 18 year career starting way back in 1989! 


What pandemic?  Let’s Carry On… Regardless!
