Hotpots serve up great Lancashire fare

They’ve been described as ‘the Spinal Tap of folk bands’ and a night with the Lancashire Hotpots is always one to remember. So mark May 30 in your diary – because that’s when the lads are returning to the Grand.

The Hotpots will be donning their stetsons and saddling up their horses for an evening of music, comedy… and a bit of the Wild Wild West with their new show – A Fist Full of Scratchcards. You can expect all the usual comedy folk favourites including Chippy Tea, Shopmobility Scooter as well as Rootin’ Tootin’ Country and Western Hoedown.

The musical Lancashire Lads from St Helens have been writing their topical comedy folk songs since 2006, and have performed on the Grand’s stage for the past four years.

The Lancashire Hotpots have become the go-to band for those wanting a light-hearted view on life from a distinctly northern angle. With rousing anthems such as He’s Turned Emo, The Baking Song and I Fear Ikea, the Hotpots have become something of a cult spectacle, touring the country with their own brand of parody songs and celebrating the culture of the North West.

They have played at Glastonbury festival, toured with Paddy McGuinness, written jingles for Holland’s Pies, recorded live studio sessions at BBC 6Music for avid Hotpots fan Steve Lamacq and even had a real ale named after them!

Join Bernard, Bob, Kenny, Billy and Dickie at Blackpool Grand Theatre on Saturday 30 May for a rambunctious riot of good-time, sing-a-long fun.

Tickets are £15.50. To book, call the box office on 01253 74 33 39 or visit the website.
