Sunday concert in the park

Dave Hirst, without 50p for the meter
At the Bothy singaround last night, I heard the interesting news that that there will be a free afternoon folk concert in Southport featuring a number of local folk and acoustic artists. It’s being organised by Dave Hirst who performs both as a solo artist and as part of the band, Misery Guts. I’ve enjoyed watching Dave perform in the Mount Pleasant and the Park Golf Club in Southport - both with the band and solo -  and he has also played in Liverpool and on local radio.

It will take place close to the cafĂ© area in Hesketh Park, which can be seen on the top right corner of this map (by Albert Road and Park Crescent), on Sunday 2 September between 2.00 and 5.00 p.m. If you fancy a drink or a meal before or afterwards, the Imperial Hotel (a real ale pub, marked on the map) on Albert Road is a few minutes' walk from the park gates.

Regrettably I can't make it as I'll be at Fylde Folk Festival on that day.
