we suffered a bit of a setback with our ‘Tubthumping’ night because The Constitutional tragically closed its doors for the final time at the turn of the year. however, we’re now at the larger and snazzier Old Woollen in Farsley! come and experience what it’ll be like in there as we welcome Steven ‘Polarbear’ Camden and Jasmine Gardosi on Thursday 8 June.

tickets are available here for £11 plus booking fee.
