The Shires and Platform Festival to take over Pocklington Arts Centre in July

18 April 2019 news


East Yorkshire’s Pocklington Arts Centre is set to be a vibrant and entertaining venue in July, with The Shires and Platform Festival to take over it for two nights.

On July 12, The Shires – with support from Beth McCarthy – will be headlining the intimate venue, which has a seating capacity of 200, though The Shires’ gig will be part standing. It’s been five years since the duo last played at the venue and tickets will cost £30 and are available here.

The music doesn’t stop there though and the following day on July 13, Platform Festival will be returning to Pocklington Arts Centre, with a number of exciting acts pencilled in to perform.

Hothouse Flowers are headlining the event, while The South, Seth Lakeman, Lucy Spraggan and The Grand Slambovians will also be on the bill, in addition to a number of other artists. Tickets for this event are £47.50 for adults, £35 for U18s and there is a family ticket (2+2 or 1+3) that is £150.

Similar to The Shires’ gig, Platform Festival is also part standing. Tickets are available here.
