Fresh Barstool Tour 2023

In the Green Wood

OK, it’s a bit of a band in-joke, but there it is. We are officially booked to play two gigs, with a third to be confirmed soon. So, it’s almost a tour of East Dorset, and this was the daft name Richard came up with, so blame him.

Our debut was always going to be in Boscombe, but, all of a sudden, we got the opportunity to play at a beer festival at Drop the Anchor Brewery in Hinton, near Christchurch, on the edge of the New Forest. We’re calling it a warm-up gig.

It’s on Saturday 6th May, which is Coronation Day. There’s entertainment planned all day, and we are the 2nd of three bands in the afternoon from 3pm. We are on at 4pm.


We will be headlining in Chaplin’s Cellar Bar, Boscombe, on Thursday 15th. Come see us in action. We will be supported by our very own Matthew Cornes, who will warm us all up with a solo set. Then the rest of us will hit the stage with a Progtastic set of our very own music. Lucky you! Doors 9pm (free entry).

Hopefully, we’ll soon be able to tell you about a third gig, in Bournemouth in July. We don’t want to give anything away, it may signal the apocalypse.
