  • If your gig is not here please add it as a comment to this post and in due course I’ll try to include it in the main list. In the meantime, there it will be in the comments. Please try to stick to the same format as in the main post, and keep it to the English Midlands. I don’t want this to become too wordy with descriptions – those are for me to compose elsewhere in this site in the Live Preview category. Just stick to the facts!
