The Bressingham Band Night, Bressingham Steam Museum, Norfolk - 5th October 2019

Nosher spots that a band we'd seen and really liked at the Nelson Head beer festival in Horsey a few weeks before - Little Red Kings - were playing at the Bressingham Band Night, a previously-unknown-to-us event which is now in its eight year. We cycle over to the venue, which is only about four miles away, but there don't seem to be too many people around. However, over the next hour the place really fills up and it feels like quite a happening, if somewhat secret, event. It's a curious venue, set in a mock Dads Army street (literally) in the Steam Museum, but it all seems to work, and ends up being a great night with some really good bands. There's even a good choice of four real ales on, which is a bonus, as well as free rides on the Victorian gallopers.
