Night Out At The Horne brings back:

“Award-winning folk and storytelling trio”

We are pleased to welcome back Harp & a Monkey.

This event, which is suitable for all ages, is clearly not to be missed.

The trio from Greater Manchester charmed and beguiled a packed house on their last visit (back in 2022) with their poignant, uplifting and melodic short stories (original and traditional) about everyday life, love and remembrance.

“bold and brilliant”

– The Observer

“fantastic and fascinating”

– Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2


– folk legend Mike Harding.

With four acclaimed albums under their belts, expect banjos, harp, accordions, guitars, violas, and glockenspiels on the national concert circuit and guaranteed poignancy, humour and great audience rapport at their live shows.

Band frontman and lead storyteller Martin Purdy said “It is a lovely audience at Church Stretton, and we have lots more tall tales and strange truths to share with them. If we can pick up where we left off last time, with shared emotion, sentiment and laughter, then we will be in for yet another fantastic night.”

Tickets: £12. Age under 18: £6 are available on-line now and later from: The Outdoor Depot, Sandford Avenue, Church Stretton, and from Church Stretton Town Council Office.
