Hardwicke Circus / The White Heat / More TBC on Friday 4th November 2022


'Meet the five-piece band who are not only turning heads with the confident glide in their stride; they're literally bulletproof” - Paul Sexton (Sunday Times)

Hardwicke Circus are fast building a reputation as the most exciting band to emerge from the UK in recent years. Having gained a large internet following, and fans all over the UK through playing countless live shows, this band has what it takes to go all the way.

So much so that they’ve just played this year’s Glastonbury at none other than PAUL McCARTNEY’S RECOMMENDATION.

Watching them live only enforces this belief. Their sound brings comparisons with the brio of the E Street Band and the dark passion of classic Doors, but with plenty of British authenticity and perhaps even a hint of Dexy's in their high voltage attack.

Proudly based in the border town of Carlisle, Hardwicke Circus have played over 150 gigs this year - supporting Bob Dylan & Neil Young in Hyde Park, Madness, Alabama 3, Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes, Bob Geldof’s Boomtown Rats and The Blockheads. They have gigged at the legendary Isle of Wight Festival, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, headlined the Yam Riot Stage at Kendal Calling and gained airplay on BBC Introducing, Radio 1, Radio 2 & 6 Music. HC have recently completed a four month residency at the famous Hope & Anchor in London and have just released their third EP. In March 2020 they played the legendary South by Southwest Festival in Austin Texas, USA.

The first local band to sell out their hometown venue “The Brickyard” four months in advance, Hardwicke Circus have added a second night - playing two sell out hometown gigs back-to-back.

“Imagine The Rolling Stones creating an album with The Doors jamming with Primal Scream...This is Hardwicke Circus. Transforming their influences into their own originality, this night was one to remember for some time to come.”

'One the best gigs I've ever seen; raw visceral rock music, before it all got too damn perfect and corporate'

'Every so often a band comes along that has something special. This is a young band with talent to burn and huge potential'

Their ever expanding army shows no sign of stopping.


The White Heat are a four-piece band, heavily influenced by and playing a mixture of 1990s-2000s indie and alternative classics alongside producing originals such as the debut single Postcode Police.

The musicians write about life in the north as 18-year-olds, and one of their aims is to make music nostalgic and relatable to audiences.

Lead Ethan Briscoe and guitarist Brad Hoyle have been playing music together for three years. It was only in February this year, with two new members joining, that the band came to fruition.

The band members open up about navigating in the music industry at the mere age of 18, and how it has been a whirlwind experience so far.

Brad said: “We write about stuff that is going on in the world at the time, and stuff that we and other people experience. We write tunes about being a mid to late teen up north. We display this with our indie alternative genre which is where a lot of our influences are from.

“The journey got off to a great start, and the support from those who have found us has been great. We reached 2,000 streams on our debut single Postcode Police within two weeks of its release, which was double our two-week goal. I don’t think being young has deprived us of any opportunities, but learning about the complexity of the music industry together at a young age has been quite an experience.” BLOG PRESTON
