The Concert

Jan Akkerman gained international fame with Focus from 1969 to 1976, recording a number of breakout albums and being voted world’s best guitarist by Melody Maker in 1973 (ahead of both Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page!). His music has being featured on endless Films and TV shows including Hot Fuzz (2007), Robocop (2014), Baby Driver (2017) and Nike adverts. 

With Focus he toured with Frank Zappa and Yes, and is lauded by his peers:

"How can you forget a guy like Jan….the nights we played together were great, I wish I could play the things that he did" - B.B King

"An almost perfectly formed musician" - Peter Banks (YES)

"He’s totally a hero of mine, there are some people in life that no matter how old you are, you feel nervous if you meet someone, he’s one of those, a real role model" - Brian May 

In October 2019 Akkerman released ‘Close Beauty’, considered as one of his most varied works incorporating acoustic and electric compositions, solo or performed with his band. It is his first studio album since 2011 and his first on vinyl for 30 years.

For the safety of all our guests and staff please read the following safety policy. We are implementing the below measures during a trial period of 3 months for all of our upcoming events between 1st August and 31st October.

  • Due to the intimate nature of our venue and that the safety of our guests is paramount to us - we have decided for a trial period of 3 months in which our concerts will only be available to guests who have been double vaccinated, and can prove their vaccination through the NHS app (or paper equivalent, together with ID).
  • For those of you who are unable to to take the vaccine for medical purposes or choose not to, we will also accped evidence of a negative PCR test through the NHS app (or equivalent) - taken within 48 hours of attending. If this is not possible, we are very sorry that you will not be able to join us during this three month period, and will offer a full refund against your ticket.
  • In addition, we politely request that all those attending also take a Lateral Flow Test within 12 hours of joining us, just to bring additional peace of mind to everyone at the venue.
  • Tickets for this event must be pre-booked for test and trace purposes. Tickets will unfortunately not be available on the door.
  • Please be aware of social distancing at our events, keep at least 2m away from other guests where possible and pay attention to any one-way systems arranged around the venue.
  • All our staff will be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), and maintaining social distancing at all times.
  • We will only be operating paperless and cashless payment systems.

  • Please DO NOT attend the event if you are feeling unwell or if you have been in contact with anyone with symptoms of Covid 19.
  • By purchasing this ticket and attending the event you are declaring that you do not have symptoms of Covid 19.

We have spent the past few weeks discussing becoming 'vaccine only' with both concert-goers and bands and have had overwhelming support for our approach, so we hope you will find our announcement a relief, and for those of you who do not agree with our policy we hope you understand that our decision has been made in the spirit of safety.

We very much look forward to the time when things can return to normal and that we can welcome everybody back without these precautions.

If the above works for you...we look forward to seeing you at the show!
