Plus support from Ashley Park
Miles Hunt’s band The Wonder Stuff have recorded four Top 20 albums and 17 Top 20 singles, selling over three million albums worldwide. Their hits include Size Of A Cow, Dizzy (ft. Vic Reeves), Welcome To The Cheap Seats, On The Ropes and more recently Oh No! (the video if which features Greg Davies), released in March 2013.
During The Wonder Stuff’s year out in 2007, front man Miles and violinist Erica Nockalls released their debut album together, ‘Not An Exit’. A ten date tour quickly turned into an 18 month tour, and in 2009 Miles & Erica were back in the studio to record the follow up album, ‘Catching More Than We Miss’.
Tours proceeded in the UK, USA, Europe and Japan before finally releasing their highly anticipated ‘Miles & Erica Live 2010/11’ in May 2011, and in 2012 the duo notched up no less than 150 shows. 2013 started with a bang as they continued their long running acoustic tour, whilst fitting in a new Wonder Stuff album with a three week tour and seven festival headline slots.
2015 saw the most travelled duo in indie rock back on the road playing songs from both Miles & Erica's and The Wonder Stuff's extensive catalogue interspersed with tales from the road and recent musings.

Support: Ashley Park
Ashley Park is the moniker for singer/songwriter, Craig Henderson. Inspired by the introspective frontmen of the early 90s emo scene and musicianship of traditional guitar players like Tommy Emmanuel and Chet Atkins. All of these influences are evident in Ashley Park’s own brand of emo-folk with comparisons having been made to acts such as Sun Kil Moon and American Football. Starting back in 2007 Ashley Park began supporting punk and metal bands in his local music scene and matching their intensity with his powerful vocal delivery and intricate guitar playing.
Since then, Ashley Park has gone on to tour a number of European countries supporting Jonah Matranga, (Far, Gratitude), Garett Klahn (Texas Is The Reason), and Jason Orlovitch (Polite Sleeper), all to promote his three EPs (Ashley Park's 5, Songs for Friends, and The Crown) and two full length studio albums (Silent Comedy and Tuesday). The subtle mix of intimacy and intensity of this performer is something that has to be witnessed live.
