As you will hopefully know by now, we have a gig coming up at The Grand, Clitheroe on Feb 28th, which we will be filming for a live DVD.
If you want to be part of this and want to book combined coach and gig tickets (pickups in Widnes, Wigan, St Helens and possibly Chorley/Leyland), then go to our webshop.
IF YOU ARE TRAVELLING UNDER YOUR OWN STEAM and just want gig tickets - then book direct from the venue
Because we want as many of you as possible to get there and make it a very special night, we have agreed with the venue to charge the bargain price of £5.00 for tickets. The combined coach and gig ticket is £15.00.
Please book as early as possible as that will help us decide whether we need more than 1 coach!
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR THE ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR THE MERRY HELL FAN IN YOUR LIFE, AN EARLY VALENTINE PLAN - OR SIMPLY A TREAT FOR YOURSELF?
Here's your VERY BIG chance.
You can book your loved one, yourself, or both of you into the Merry Hell studio, work with our guitar and producing maestro John Kettle and record you, whoever you choose, singing your favourite Merry Hell song. Your voice will be mixed in to the original recording of the song of your choice to replace either, or both, Andrew or Virginia - so it's exactly the same version as on the albums except it's got the voice of your choice on it.
Each recording session will include the recording session, editing and mixing with John and end with you taking away a cd with your recording on it. Each session will last 2 hours in the studio and cost a bargain £80.
Sessions are scheduled for the weekend the 24th and 25th of January (hence the early Valentine thing) but it may be possible to book a different time according to demand.
For all details, email firstname.lastname@example.org

Get used to the image above - you should be seeing it a lot in the near future.
at BBC Radio Merseyside
has honoured us immensely by devoting the whole 1 hour of his Folkscene programme (a full 60 earth minutes) to some band called Merry Hell. He even let Andrew and Virginia talk about the band and the songs. On that basis, it would be rude not to listen to the whole programme, which you can do for the next 6 days.

If you enjoy the programme (and you should), please show your appreciation by emailing Stan via the Folkscene link on the BBC Radio Merseyside website.
