Workshop and Gig Tickets

CORONA VIRUS UPDATE, DECEMBER 2020

Please note that all our workshops and ticketed  events have all been postponed. As soon as we are in a position to re-schedule them we will be touch. 

If you have a ticket for Boxstock or any of our workshops, your ticket will be valid for the rescheduled event, alternatively you may request a refund.

Please bear with us in these difficult times - we are doing our best to get these events up and running again.

BOXSTOCK 2021

We have set a new date for Boxstock, 15th & 16th October 20121, at The Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton.

This may seem like a long time away, but we felt that in light of the current situation it was the most prudent way of going forward. We did not want to have to repeatedly postpone the event if we had rescheduled for spring or summer of 2021, and hence we arrived at this decision with the co-operation of the venue and the headline artists.

We hope to see many of you there!

 

MAKE AND PLAY WORKSHOPS

We still have a number of people who have kindly stuck with us, having bought workshop tickets and  decided to wait for new dates to be released. When we re-schedule these events, existing ticket holders will be notified, and will have priority in having places allocated to them.  Thank you all for your confidence and support for Chickenbone John Guitars.

We know that demand is always high for these events, but at present we have decided not to release any more tickets until we are sure that we can run the events safely and in full compliance with government and local authority regulations and guidance as regards Covid 19.

However, if you would like to come to one of our workshops, please use the "Contact Us" button at the bottom of the page to register your interest, and we will be back in touch as soon as we have arranged some new dates. We will be running future workshops at Lightwoods House in the West Midlands - price will be £85.00 per person including all materials and lunch.

 

Make your own 3 string guitar and learn how play in a day. With over 2000 guitars made in my "Make and Play" workshops, these events are always popular and always fun, so early booking is advised.

Learn to play cigar box guitar. There are a variety of courses - 1/2 day beginners and intermediate classes, and also learn to play courses with myself and the legendary Hollowbelly.
