It serves it's own line of Honeystreet Ales, is situated right on the Kennet and Avon canal, plays Arcade Fire on it's website and we can't wait to get in there and play for them!

The Saint James' Wine Vaults

  • Saint James' Wine Vaults (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We're heading back to the Saint James' Wine Vaults!

This place has been a regular haunt of the Doubtful Guest for over a decade now and we still love it.

One of the few bars in Bath to have stuck to it's guns and stayed a good old fashioned boozer. No flower pots filled with Thyme and mismatched leather chairs here.

And you don't need a 2nd mortgage for half a pint of "craft" ale either.

We're sharing the stage with Al O'Kane from over in Frome. He's been playing the local circuit for as long as we have and has some great songs up his sleeve.

Widcombe Street Party

One of the last long-standing traditions of our beautiful City!

It's an honor to be invited to play as a part of the Widcombe street party's line up and we're really excited to see what the day brings!

Come down, have a beer, dance the day away and forget about Monday, lurking 'round the corner like a dirty, fun stealing fiend!!

http://www.members.widcombeassociation.org.uk/pages/widcombe-street-party

The Parade will be closed for the day and there will be a large covered stage at one end of the street, with two additional smaller stages. Gazebos, tables and chairs will be set up along the length of the street, which will be decorated with banners and bunting. Musical performances will take place on the stages and at street level, involving school ensembles, local choirs and groups, and progressing to professional entertainers and bands. There will be buskers and street performers entertaining visitors throughout the day, including street theatre from the Natural Theatre Company, and naturally a guest appearance by our own Lady Margaret. The local pubs, restaurants and cafes will be open for business, and local traders will set up stalls in front of their premises to sell food, drink and merchandise. There will be street games, raffles, competitions and activities for children.

Buckland Dinham Village Day

Buckland Dinham is a beautiful little village that sits betwixt the mighty townships of Radstock and Frome.

They're having a day of celebration for their village and we've been asked to make large amounts of noise for them!! And so we shall!! If you're in the area or you just fancy a day out in the country, come by and catch our set.

Looking at the village website, it appears Teddies jump off the Tower at 3pm. This mass "Lemming imitation" may be a one day only affair or Buckland Dinham could be the last resting place of all stuffed toys. I personally can not wait to find out!

Also performing will be Frome's foremost SingerSongwriter and Town Councillor extraordinaire, Mr Al O'Kane.

And now, we get to share a bill with them and try to keep up!

This is gonna be an outstanding night! Come out!

The Saint James' Wine Vaults

The Wine Vaults has had a consistently high and varied line up of musicians banging, strumming, kicking and crooning their way across it's cosy stage for many years. Add to this owner Neil Whiting's on/off love affair with one of the greatest moustaches ever to roam the Earth and you're guaranteed a night beyond compare.

The Doubtful Guest have hammered out many a sweaty night here and return to do exactly the same once more!
