    BOTH SHOWS ARE NOW SOLD OUT 

    Last Summer our Partners at Leeders Vale Studios approached us with the prospect of hiring our main hall out to a prominent recording artist for a  secret project.

     

    January 2017 arrived along with the Public Service Broadcasting collective complete with Dusty The Dog. After five weeks of wondrous soundscapes emanating from our transformed Hall the album was completed and we were sworn to secrecy.

     

    We can now let you all in on the great news that Every Valley by Public Service Broadcasting is complete and that Public Service Broadcasting are performing two preview shows on June the 8th and 9th as a thank you to the community and to give their dedicated fan-base the chance to absorb tracks from the album in the very room they were recorded.

     

    On his TunMlr site J Willgoose Esq writes

    “We recorded Every Valley in Ebbw Vale, historically a Steelworker’s town but one surrounded by coal mines, in the former lecture hall of their worker’s institute. It seemed important to record in the valleys, as i wanted this album to feel connected to the area it was written about in ways our previous albums hadn’t been.”
