    Things are still in the planning stages,as we are talking to bands at the moment,but we are pleased to confirm our first band, which is Ghoad,who will be performing their tribute to Saxon set over the weekend.If you were at the aformentioned St Georges day gig you will know what a good show they put on.
    More details as and when we have them.It will be good to see as many forumers there as possible to make it a fantastic event.more soon.............

    Almost forgot Metal Ed will be there too for another storming set!

    Nightvision, an incredibly talented new young British 4-piece hard rock band from Lincolnshire, released their irresistible, tour de force debut album, ‘As The Lights Go Down’, on Rocksector Records on April 6th….

    ‘As The Lights Go Down’ is packed with exuberant, crisp, crunching guitar riffs, soaring, wide ranging vocals, thunderous melodic bass lines & powerhouse engine room drumming. This is the sound of four excellent young musicians who have embraced their influences from the (metal and hard rock) past, injected tons of energy & enthusiasm & created their own distinctive brand of high energy hard rock music in the process.

    If you are a Saxon fan and you ain't heard of this lot,where have you been?
    They will be playing both days and cover all of Saxon's career, so you will hear song's that Saxon don't play anymore or maybe have'nt played live before.I know they have some surprises in store for both day's.
    They are worth the ticket price alone,never mind all the other great acts we have lined up.So what are you waiting for order your tickets NOW!

    Hi All,

    As at our previous event we will run a charity auction of Rock memorabilia for Help for Heroes.

    We would like to thank, Nigel Glockler(Saxon), Doug Scarratt(Saxon) and our friends at Rocksector records who have been extremely generous with their donations to helps us raise more funds for a great charity.
    ...
    Just to tease you some of the items are genuine "once in a lifetime" opportunities to purchase some great memorabilia and a rock 'n roll experience that will not disappoint.

    More to be revealed as we get nearer to the weekend

    Thanks to Paul Raymond Gregory who has kindly donated a limited edition print (worth £150)of the Crusader artwork.Which we will be holding a raffle for to give everyone there a chance of winning

    [​IMG]

    As many of you will know Bloodstock founder Paul Gregory is renowned in the music and art world for the many album covers he has designed over the last 25 years for legendary bands such as DIO, Saxon, Molly Hatchet, Uriah Heep, Blind Guardian to name a few. Saxon's Crusader album was not only the first album cover Paul painted for Saxon but his first for any band. 25 years later this historic album cover artwork is released as a fine art limited edition print of just 500 copies worldwide. Each print is signed and numbered by the artist and accompanied with a letter of authenticity.
