Break a Leg! and Ar Faoued

Once again Break a Leg! have teamed up with another musical partnership to celebrate the magic of musical collaborations.

Ar Faoued BaL

We are big fans of Ar Faoued. Paul Chisnell’s great singing and percussion, Ady Hall’s firm underpinning with guitar, Irish bouzouki, and vocal harmonies and Rob Jourdain’s fine touch with violin and viola make for a beautiful combination and we are looking forward to sharing the evening with them.

Cafe Ceres is a new venue for Break a Leg! Having experienced the great atmosphere created for Ben Chapman’s ‘Holy Robots’ open mic evenings at the cafe, it feels like the ideal location for an intimate musical occasion, with more space than our previous events at Strip the Willow.

The cafe provides a bar and very good snacks from their chef Jean-Paul and the friendly staff work hard to make you welcome. If you haven’t tried it yet it’s a great place to enjoy lunch, coffee or tea at the interesting end of Ecclesall Rd and right by the even more interesting Sharrow Vale Rd. (NB the Kitchen is not open on Tuesdays but there will be excellent snacks available – platters of either hummus and crisps and crudités or cheese and meat one).


Strutting at the Peacock Inn

Sunday 27th September in Chesterfield, a great musical line-up in a very good cause.


We will be sharing the bill with the very excellent Ar-Faoued, plus a cameo appearance from Judy Dunlop. Only 50 seats in the Marquee at the Peacock Inn, so get your tickets soon.

The event is run by Peter Julian, who runs regular music events at the Peacock Inn, this special concert is to raise money for an educational project in Costa Rica, Abriendo Mentes, Peter’s son works there.

Peacock Inn, 412 Chatsworth Road, S40 3BQ Chesterfield, 8pm

Southbound with Break a Leg!


No we aren’t heading for the sunbelt, or even Dronfield.
Southbound is a 5-piece acoustic/electric band playing a very pleasing mix of country music, country rock and old favourites. They are playing at Hagglers corner at the end of July and they’ve asked us to do a set for them.

So it looks like a fun evening in a friendly venue, why don’t you come along?

8pm – 11pm. Hagglers Corner, Queens Rd, Sheffield
(plenty of car parking just over the road at Dunelm Mill)

Licensed bar, advance tickets £6
(that includes a £1 booking fee which goes to charity). Buy them here on the Party for the People website

Tales and Tunes at the Penny Pot Cafe in July

soldout-red1The cafe say that thy have reserved all the seats they normally have available. If they get any more requests for seats they will see if they can squeeze you in but they can’t promise.

We are looking forward to this one. On Friday 17 July we will be working with storyteller Simon Atherton to perform an evening of Tales and Tunes at the National Trust’s Penny Pot Cafe, in Edale

It’s a complete evening with dinner and entertainment for £12, which sounds like great value.

And if you fancy a night out without the car, the cafe is right beside Edale Station, the last train back to Dore and Sheffield runs at 11pm. If it’s a fine day you might decide to start with a late afternoon walk from Edale.

Full details and how to reserve your place here (advance bookings only)

NB (1st July), The bookings are filling up so we may be sold out quite soon, if you would like to come please make your reservation quickly!
