Due to 11th November selling out so quickly, we have added this additional date of 16th December. Limited tickets so be quick!

Doors at 7.30pm for 8pm start

Cirencester's award winning critically acclaimed contemporary folk Artist Ben Maggs comes home to 'enchant' and 'mesmerise' with songs old and new 'that will leave your heart tingling by the final stanza'.

Ben returns to his home town following a year of headline gigs throughout the UK, playing to 'awe-inspired' audiences, also supporting The Proclaimers at sell out shows - having to decline the crowd's unanimous cries for an encore to make sure the main act could be on stage on time!

Since Ben's album release last November, his live show has been hailed by the music press as 'mesmerising', 'crackling with creativity', 'outstanding' and 'magnificent'. The album, 'Come as you are', was met equally effusively and enthusiastically by the critics.

Join Ben for a very intimate gig at The Bothy in Cirencester - a colourful, artistic and quirky venue, perfectly suited to Ben's nature loving artistic soul and music, and home to renowned fabric designer and staunch supporter of local charities, Vanessa Arbuthnott.

Always inspired by the nature of life and love, and his love of life and nature, Ben has continued to write and create new tapestries with the colourful threads of his 'stunningly beautiful vocals', melodies and poetic lyrics, all wrapped in the warmth of artfully played acoustic guitar. Some songs are further enriched by his unique, sensitive and creative use of a loop pedal or rhythmic 'one man band' foot powered cajon and tambourine.

This super talented Singer/Songwriter is a real tour de force and not to be missed. This is an intimate gig with limited tickets, so please book soon.
