Good news for any previously excluded fans of the rail/rock interface. The
steam authorities have approved a 50-person increase for the show in
Kidderminster in September. There should now be more tickets on sale as
Thursday 13 September
Severn Valley Railway, Kidderminster
There will be a full amplified BSP set plus support – out on the platform,
under the station canopy. There will also be secluded interiors available,
in the function suite and at the King & Castle pub on the railway site. The
old railway station is located beside the current Kidderminster rail
station and the BSP performance will finish in time for people to catch the
2245h train on the Wolverhampton/Birmingham line.

Before that we hope to see you in Norfolk toward the end of August. BSP are
set to open the Voewood festival’s rock sector, in what promises to be a
Friday 24 August
Voewood Festival, near Sheringham, Norfolk.
A loud and healthy BSP set will be presaged by Roy Wilkinson reading from
his BSP-themed book Do It For Your Mum, complete with musical
accompaniment. Other attractions over the weekend included Deborah Curtis,
Simon Armitage, Glen Matlock, DBC Pierre, Billy Bragg, The Idler Academy
and the outrageous animal-refuge pirates of HMS Sweet Charity. The festival
takes place in an amazing fully-plumbed posh house close to the glorious
north Norfolk coast – where even now you can spot spoonbills and
legitimately shoot samphire-foragers.
