A Pokey Hole Presentation. Money for Nothing is Europe’s premier tribute to Dire Straits – They have performed all over the world, and have studied Dire Straits in great depth in order to be as close as possible to the real thing. Fronting the band is the brilliant guitarist and “Mark Knopfler sound-alike”, Aled Williams, and behind him, the line-up features top-class and experienced musicians. The result is a performance that makes Money For Nothing a “must see” for any rock enthusiast or Dire Straits fan. Featuring all the hits from their first ever single, ‘Sultans of Swing’ through to ‘Brothers in Arms‘, this show will leave you absolutely mesmorised! “Make no mistake… they are good – VERY GOOD!”

Petty Criminals bring you an evening of classic rock in the shape of an American icon – one of the greatest songwriters and greatest bands of our time, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. From deep cuts to greatest hits, you’ll journey through early songs like American Girl, Breakdown & Refugee, through the ‘80s and early ‘90s with classics like Freefallin’, Runnin’ Down A Dream, I Won’t Back Down & Learning To Fly, with highlights from the seminal album “Wildflowers” and his later albums.
