Headlined by Telford's Bangers 'n' Mash with support from Wolverhampton's Sam Draisey, the night sees Pale Fire Music, Forge Urban Revival and Left For Dead Records present the end of their 2018 live music programme on November 30.

The main entertainment will be provided by Bangers 'n' Mash - a three-piece indie grunge band who will be performing new material straight from the studio where they have been writing songs for a new EP.

The support act on the night, Sam Draisey, is a Musicians Union representative who also fronts his own band and appeared as The Ticket's unsigned page star in July last year. He will be performing solo; playing compositions influenced by the likes of Billy Bragg and Frank Turner.

Tickets for the gig, priced at £5, are available from the venue, Left for Dead Records in Shrewsbury, Smash Room Studios on Ketley Business Park and Boomshanka Records in Wellington's Market Annex.
