Tom Holloway of Sonic Gun Concerts said: “Sonic Gun Concerts are delighted to be putting on the first annual Sonic Gun Weekender at one of our favourite venues in the city. The Castle & Falcon is a great supporter of national and international music and it made total sense to put our first weekender here!

“The bands on the bill are all bands that Sonic Gun Concerts have worked closely with over the last 3 years and the idea for the weekender was to put a spotlight on the amazing talent our city has. Every event needs great food and drink and we’ve got exactly that, I absolutely love everything about House of Hen and I am so happy they wanted to be involved in the weekend. It should be a fantastic weekend and I hope you can all join me there.”

The Sonic Gun Weekender starts at 6pm on Friday, August 17th, 3pm on Saturday 18th and Sunday, August 19th. Tickets are close to selling out, so grab yours whilst you can.
