Event Listing

Avenue Q
Avenue Q is not the most upmarket of New York streets, and is about as far away from Park Avenue as you can get, but it is home to some lively and off the wall characters performed by an unholy comedic alliance of humans and puppets! Princeton, a bright-eyed college graduate, has just moved to this neighbourhood as he desperately tries to follow his dreams and discover his ever-elusive purpose in life. A tiny bank balance, the distraction of a busty blonde and a variety of weird and wonderful friends and neighbours lead Princeton on a hilarious story of self-discovery. Life may suck on Avenue Q but being jobless, homeless, politically incorrect, having sex (whether hetero, homo or porno... and that s just the puppets) are just some of the topics featured in the terrific songs of this show.

Drinking (aka The RAPTURE aka The LIBATION)

Two pint buzz is the world’s best buzz: we sell pints. Two-cocktail buzz is also excellent and often too expensive: but not here. Two for one on a variety of lip-smacking brain-shaking cocktails.

Wille & The Bandits

advanced tickets available from seetickets.com*

Having toured their eclectic sound with the likes of Deep Purple, Joe Bonamassa, The John Butler Trio and Status Quo; reached number 2 in the UK blues charts; played countless critically acclaimed sets at major music festivals; and been invited to perform at the London Olympics, Wille and the Bandits, without any label backing or injected hype, have built something special, a reputation built on word of mouth for delivering the goods time and time again. The DIY approach takes time, but with every passing day their fan base grows and so does the belief that they will be gracing Europe’s famous arenas very soon.

“The Kaiser Chiefs called these guys the new Seasick Steve, but they are much, much more than that; surely designed for big things”Classic Rock Magazine

The band are renowned for creating an astonishingly huge sound for a trio, incorporating hypnotic grooves from world music to heavy rock. The band may use wailing guitars and vocals, six string bass and big drum sounds for heavier numbers and subtler instruments such as double bass, ethnic percussion and various slide guitars for mellower subtleties.

The band has been praised in the press for their albums; bursting at the seams with textures, originality and soul. Rock legends such as Ian Paice, Joe Bonamassa and Francis Rossi have also praised the band’s musicianship.

“Wille is a suberb slide player, I love what these guys are doing”Joe Bonamassa

“Love the soul in their music”Bob Harris

It’s rare to find a band as dynamic as Wille and the Bandits, one that is just as comfortable and as impressive at both ends of the sonic spectrum. In the modern age of disposable music it is refreshing to hear a band that still value the art of creating albums and who continue to bring new instruments and ideas into their songwriting rather than settling for a tried and tested formula. Ten seconds of Youtube will not scratch the surface of the band’s sound and message; this is a band that is very much about discovery.

The band also use being an independent act to their advantage with their last single “Trouble down the line”, released to raise money for the flood victims in the South west of England. As the campaign continues into the tour in October, the band hope to have raised a significant amount of money for a good cause.

Wille and the Bandits have started to gather wider attention with National radio stations in the UK, Belgium and Germany spinning their tracks and radio one listing them as one of the acts to watch out for at Glastonbury 2014:

Voted number 6 in the top ten must see bands at Glastonbury Festival 2014BBC Radio 1

The band seem to have created something that is not an appeal to a particular generation or muso type, their audiences are packed with people from all walks of life, their music crosses cultural and age barriers. The band were picked by the Daily Telegraph as “one of the best live acts in the country” and have now put their live sound to disc with “Live in Gouvy” which was recorded in an intimate, yet famous venue called Ferme de la Madelonne, a working farm in the middle of the Ardenne forest in Belgium. The venue was chosen because of its 40 year heritage of hosting top musicians and its unbelievable acoustics and character. The band wanted a venue where they could literally stare into the audiences’ eyes and feel the energy of the gig and this is exactly what happened. The album will only be available in the UK at the live shows throughout the UK tour in October.

'Meet the Stemettes at Chester' panel event - May 2015


Stemettes and Bank of America Merrill Lynch would like to invite you to attend a celebration women in STEM.  We will be holding a panel event, complete with Q&A, networking (games) and nibbles.

The event is open to all and promises to provide a fantastic opportunity to meet and network with STEM professionals to discover new opportunities, over light refreshments in a relaxed atmosphere.

Who? - The event is aimed at Sixth-formers and University students, younger girls are also welcome (with a Parent/Guardian).

Where? - We'll be at Bank of America Merrill Lynch's office in Chester at the Business Park. The address is Bank of America, Chester Business Park, Chester, CH4 9FB.

When? - Saturday 30th May 2015. We'll be starting at 1pm, aiming to finish by 4pm.
