Eclectic Cabaret #8

Friday 14th September, 2018, 8:00pm - 11:00pm

The next Eclectic Cabaret will be on Friday 14th September at 8:00pm.  We're very pleased to say there will be a bar along with the usual fantastic food for sale.  Please do feel free to also bring your own drink if you would prefer.  As ever, any and all money raised goes towards the costs of running the WADSStock Festival.

We are starting to think about the line-up for next year, so if you are a performer of any kind, please read our guides for artistes and drop us a line if you think you fit the bill.

We have a fine selection of eclectic artistes for your audio-visual pleasure:

Nova Kicks (unplugged)

Nova Kicks, Oxford based rock band with a selection of original catchy songs from their fantastic album Maps blended with a mix of popular covers from the Stones to the Stereophonics.


WolfNote are an acoustic folk and roots quintet from Berkshire comprising  multi-instrumentalist Mike with his gammy leg, violinist and vocalist Ceri with her dodgy back, Gill on guitar, vocals and dulcimer, also falling to bits, and cellist and vocalist Bex, a crazy cat lady. Sacha Mayhew percussionist has recently joined the band.

They use rich string and vocal harmonies to create a stunning sound.  Despite looking inexplicably cross on stage people seem to like them. They have won The Graham Steel showcase artist award and have featured on BBC radio and at Henley Festival (hear them here) with BBC Introducing. WolfNote would just like to say that they are not sisters and Mike is not their dad.

Strawberry Thieves

Strawberry Thieves are a folk duo specializing in traditional songs from the British Isles. They have an EP on the way.

See them on YouTube before you see them with us at the Eclectic Cabaret!
