Sleaford Mods set to play Garden Court

In General

Nottingham-based punk-hop duo, Sleaford Mods, have been confirmed to play Garden Court on Friday 03 November.

Their punk-inspired, minimalist music style has been praised by critics, who have dubbed the band  “the most compelling live act in music act right now” (The Guardian).

With lyrics covering life in austerity-Britain, the pair’s music is reminiscent of Happy Mondays’ Shaun Ryder, The Fall’s Mark E. Smith and The Streets.

Tickets are £18.50 each, available to purchase from our Box Office at www.unionsouthampton.org/boxoffice.
