Thanks Naughty forty I will contact you via this thread nearer the time. If I can not make it I will be coming to stay in Hasting after Knockholt so we can catch up perhaps at the Stag on a Tuesday.
Regards Pierre.

I'm not sure if Wheeler Street are "stellar" or not, but they are bloody good. An excellent choice to headline the Saturday night!
