Acorn Reborn.

We're overjoyed to see that the beautiful Acorn theatre appears to be born again, and is tempting the culture-starved with mind-fuelling morsels once more. Last year, the organising bodies were in disarray, so good shows were thin on the ground, but we saw (and adored) the audacious Murray Lachlan Young, the consummate Tom Dale and the prodigious Flats & Sharps. The Acorn is a gorgeous old venue, and in great nick too. In many ways it's the perfect venue: palatial in statue but cosy in character – not unlike the awesome Union Chapel or Bush Hall in London. Because of this it attracts those cool and quirky artists that seek that style for their performances. And that suits us. A swift scroll down the website reveals a healthy programme of arty events. We've earmarked the following items:

Seann Walsh, in the ‘Ying and Young’ Tour
Saturday, January 28th

John Peel's Shed
Saturday, March 17th

Trembling Bells & Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy
Wednesday, May 2nd
