I would love to come. But cash restrictions are restricting everything I'm doing right now. Building/buying parts is my main pain right now. Everything CBG related has been shelved so that I can eat. I am owed a chunk of money that would cover everything but I have no idea when or even if it will come my way on time. Crossing my fingers.
Just a quick reminder for any of you folk who are making and selling cigar box guitars, you need to be at Boxstock, 25th February in Wolverhampton. It's an ideal opportunity to sell your wares to an appreciative audience- a stand is only £30 and includes a free ticket to the evening gig. I won't be asking for payment until the New Year, but if you want to secure a spot, please message me - if the spaces get booked up, it's strictly on a first come first served basis. Come on, get out of your shed and get selling!!!
Tickets for the gig are available here:
Or for the cheeky "early bird" deal, go direct to my website:
Just got a pretty good deal via booking.com 47% off.
Here's a link:
I've no direct experience with hotels in Wolverhampton, but if it were me I'd look at the budget chains - Premier Inn, Novotel, Travelodge, Holiday Inn Express, Ibis etc. These are always a safe bet and I book touring artists in at these places.
Avoid the cheap "hotels"at all costs...I've had some real horror stories from people booking into what are effectively doss house hostels masquerading as hotels...the website may look OK but Tripadvisor tells another story altogether. Tripadvisor is your friend!!
Airbnd.co.uk is always worth a look, and apretty safe bet. Cheap private rooms often in someone's house or an apartment let. My kids use "airbnb" for accommodation on holiday, and I've had overseas visitors use it to find accommodation when coming to me for lessons etc.
That works fine John. Tickets bought. Look forward to seeing you there.
Yup, 404 page not found.
