Over-sized Piggy Visits The Foundry Today


Peppa Pig, the lovable but slightly bossy little piggy from the television series of the same name is visiting the Foundry Shopping Centre Today (Friday 29th August).

Peppa Pig will be available for a meet and greet of little fans. She will be making appearances at various intervals between 10.30am to 3.30pm.

So don’t miss out on the photo opportunity and deprive your little Peppa lovers of the chance to cry at the sight of an oversized pig in an orange dress or the delight on their little faces as they stand next to Peppa for a picture.wpid-20140829_103054.jpg

Peppa Pig is one of the most popular children’s TV characters of today for most pre school children and they just seem to love it. Aren’t the Peppa pig toys just so difficult to stand up with their tiny little stick arms and legs. Also i’d like to disagree Daddy Pig is not an expert at everything. (Yes I am subjected to numerous hours of re runs and cheerful bingly bongly boo songs.)

The little pig has a line forming throughout the foundry.

  • Peppa Pig is scheduled to make five appearances throughout the day:

Review – Scotterfest 2014

Its summer, its a Sunday afternoon and the sun is indeed shining. So what else do you need? I’ll tell you what you need… Parrots… Massive Parrots…

…And live music, quality live music, maybe a bouncy castle, candy, a bbq, a tombola, beer, good friends. All this and more and you’ve got what was Scotterfest 2014. Held at the 1889003_1447788785490294_2372497936992696453_oSun & Anchor in Scotter on 27th July. It was all done to raise money in support of The Manor Care Home. Its a bit of a reviewers nightmare having to write about a load of bands at the same time because you’ve got to try and find a different way of saying “they were good” for each act. (and they all were good). I’ll have a go anyway. As always each of the bands names are links to their official Facebook pages.

Opening up was Matt Hercock and his (Visible) Invisible Band in the shape of Mr Jack Spence on the drums. Truly excellent musicians both and a bit of a treat really to get them as openers. A bit of Elvis a bit of Paulo Nutini, the perfect start. Second was Rachel Cooksey accompanied by Mr Jack Spence, but this time he’s playing guitar. Rachel’s soulful voice drifted over the crowd, a nice little chill out session at the beggining of the afternoon. Next up was me Nick Akester, I’m not going to say anything about me except, thanks for giving me a chance Chris, the crowd were great and I was glad I decided to play my own songs in the end because thankfully they seemed to like them. Following after me was Young Knights, three immensely talented lads, did a great version of Little Lion Man by the Mumfords. I think its hard enough singing and playing guitar at the same time but the lead singer was playing a bass drum and high hat with his feet at the same time as both those. I think Iain Daniel was next. I like Iain he is a fantastic showman and a fantastic guitarist, and normally he swears a bit but this was a family friendly event and he did himself proud. Great Set mate!

I’ve just realised the10459009_1447793468823159_1018049485710246490_o running order I got sent before the day, the one I’m referring to isn’t what happened on the day haha. So if I get a couple out of sequence sorry. Next up (possibly) was Grace and The Undercovers, a well known and much respected band in the area. Grace had all the moves and the band rocked along with her and the crowd. Loved their version of Rocks Off by Primal Scream. Following Grace was Rachel Lewis a hard-working songwriter with a belting voice. Respect anyone who can do. You’ve Got The Love and come even close to the Florence version. Excellent. The 8th (probably) band of the day was Duke & the Daisy playing a mix of covers Van Morrison, Johnny Cash, classic stuff and their own compositions, two of which are currently in the final of a national song-writing competition. You can always see the crowds honest affection for these two. The next two bands were Lizzie Goddard and Twisted Revolution, I think it was that way round. Lizzie gets better every time I see her, playing a mix of covers and her originals which also grow better and better each time I hear them and they were already good. Twisted Revolution were consummate as ever beginning with Come Together and nailing one of my favourite songs of all time Dirty Old Town by The Pogues.10275392_1447790522156787_7729896711887315092_o

Stay with me we’re nearly there. Up stepped the mighty Ramble Gamble, did what they do so well, a band of misfits with an abundance of folk and soul. Brilliant. They then morphed into Martin & the Entertainers. With the ineffable and energetic Welsh man geeing up the festival with his unique brand of covers and his devastating medley ending in the well known refrain of Hey Jude… Na na na na-na na na… Always goes down well. The head-liners were The Summits and this was to be their last ever gig with university commitments stopping them from continuing as they were. But with a bit of Stereophonics, Oasis, and oh yes The Quo they got themselves a double encore so perhaps a good way to end it all.

Well done Chris for bringing it all together there were a few hiccups as their always is but at the end of a wonderfully sunny day it was all for a good cause and everyone really enjoyed themselves, what more can you ask for. So here’s looking forward to next year Scotterfest 2015 (using the same facebook page just follow the link)

Interview: Peacock Sessions//Full Vibes – All Ages Event

Ok so this is a new event brought to you by Acid Peacock, so we thought to make it a little easier to understand what it’s all about and avoid confusion we would lay it out for you by asking Acid Peacock (Brad Dring-Hill) a few questions about his event idea. There are two separate posters for this event one is for the live music stuff and the other is for the Hardr:ve event upstairs but both are included in the ticket price. There is also a FAMILY HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY. (Read More Below) This event will take place on August 24th 2014.

What is Peacock Sessions about and what’s going to happen?
This is an all encompassing bank holiday takeover of the biggest and best nightclub in scunthorpe.
Using Henry’s sound rig, A fearsome lineup of unsigned bands, an 8 hour dance event with headline slots in the main room and an afternoon acoustic session all included in the one ticket. The event will be hosted by martin morgan too, Scunthorpes number one entertainer and host.

What are the rules on under 18’s attending?
Under 18’s are allowed to enjoy the event from opening until 23:45, which is when the headline band will finish their set. There needs to be a responsible adult with all groups of minors but that can mean one in charge of a group. Obviously alcohol will not be on sale without i.d but there will be a range of soft drinks available.
I’m delighted to be able to include future crowds into this, as theres no other u18 event of this magnitude in the local scene.

What do people get for their money?
For the advanced ticket price of £5, you get 3 events. An afternoon jam and acoustic session hosted by legacy radio and Bash acoustic and finally “Full Vibes” a Trance, drum & bass event upstairs in Zebraz hosted by Hardr:ve and the Peacock Sessions hosted by myself. (Brad Dring-Hill).

This event will be a showcase, every band playing is outstanding and well regarded on their respective scenes. Full Vibes also promises to be something special as Hardr:ve are hosting the rave stage at Party in the Pines festival, so the upstairs line up promises to be a showcase of talent. 1210’s and cdj’s will be used for real mixing.

Why did you decide to do this type of event and what are you expecting from it?
I chose to do an all-dayer purely because I believe Scunthorpe is ready for it. My indie Friday events at the abacus are proving to be extremely popular due to the calibre of bands I’m bringing to play in Scunthorpe. I’m aiming for a stadium gig inside a nightclub, and that’s what I’m delivering.
Due to the venue having two rooms, and noticing how popular our rave and acoustic aspects are at P.I.T.P I decided to include both of them in this event to give even more value for the meagre door charge.

Why is Henry’s your venue of choice?
I chose to do an event at henrys after local Dirty Sterling’s “get into trouble” event, I saw the potential the room would provide with an outstanding lineup so chose to do a bespoke event there, similar to my “latte live sessions” event at the Abacus on the 1st of february. I believe it deserves to be used for a tailor made, professionally run event.

What bands have you got and why should people come see them?
Everyone on this lineup is hand picked for being at the top of their game for both the live show and recorded. Be it puppet rebellion who are hotly tipped for success or the swiines who sell out venues like rock city for fun, every single act is a headliner and their live shows are incredible.

Check the event link out for more info and links, make sure you click attending too as there’s more exciting details yet to be announced..


You are having two separate genre events in the same venue on the same day for very different tastes, how are you going to work this and where will the events take place (i.e) both downstairs or one up one down?  It’s one combined ticket for the whole event, nothing is off limits so everyone’s musical tastes can be addressed. The main room’s capacity is 900+ and upstairs is 250+ so there should be room for everyone to see what they want. That being said, I’m hearing very positive things about all aspects from this event so it’s worth turning out early to make sure full vibes isn’t at “one in one out.”

It also gives partygoers the freedom to choose what they want to listen to, without having to leave the venue, something which I’m delighted to be able to offer.

There is a lot of competition out there at the minute for local venues and promoters what sets your event apart from the rest?
I think my event speaks for itself, you’ll be hard pressed to find an event of this magnitude for the door charge in a room as all encompassing as henrys. Due to the scale and the content I believe the door charge of £10 is very reasonable. But for those who purchase advance tickets the price is reduced to £5 for the entire event. Everyone involved is working extremely hard on this and would like it to become a regular format, when it proves as popular as it promises to.
We’re also using Henry’s state of the art sound rig in the main room, which is rated at 30k and hiring the b&m bins setup for full vibes, so this event will sound as good as the lineups deserve.

Theres also another incentive to purchase tickets, theres only going to be 400 released, and on the night one lucky number will be drawn to win a family holiday in either september this year, or may next year*

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is buy a ticket from Celebrate Partyshop in Scunthorpe, or from an authorised ticket reseller.
check Coastfields Holiday Village for site info.

Keep checking this event page and Acid Peacock Promotions for more prizes yet to be announced.

*t&c’s apply see

Where can tickets be purchased from?
Limited tickets are available from the friendly people at Celebrate Partyshop on Robert street in Scunthorpe (next to Salvatore) in limited quantities and are available now. Why not pick up some American treats, Party supplies or a blyton ice cream while you’re there?
