GIG NEWS: Stornoway at the RSC (10/7/16)

I'm usually fairly in the loop... finding it hilariously ironic that because I was busy writing a Hamlet essay for English for most of yesterday I missed the news that the fantastic Stornoway guys are playing a show at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon on 10th July! Here's my favourite video of them to get you in the mood... 

Stornoway and Shakespeare - my kind of night for sure! Having recently played two triumphant shows at Oxford's SJE Arts church venue on a tour promoting their Bonxie Unplucked EP (on iTunes here - I particularly love the The Only Way Is Up cover on there) and with dates at the beautiful Sheldonian Theatre under their belts too, they're no strangers to playing spectacular venues and this will certainly be a special evening! I went to the theatre back in 2013 for a school trip to see As You Like It and really hope I can get along to this show, particularly as I didn't get chance to explore Stratford itself on that day. I heartily recommend the show if you're in the area, I saw them three times last year in three totally different settings and was blown away by their performance every time.
