Popular Cumbrian band Hardwicke Circus will once again return to Carlisle for a pre-Christmas gig in 2023. 

The five-piece rock band have performed at The Brickyard annually, apart from in 2020 when the event had to be cancelled due to Covid, and it has become a major feature of their performance calendar. 

Already dubbed the UK’s hardest working band, Hardwicke Circus have performed well over 1000 shows nationwide: supporting Bob Dylan & Neil Young in Hyde Park, shows with Madness, Southside Johnny, Bob Geldof’s Boomtown Rats and The Blockheads.

They have gigged at the legendary Isle of Wight Festival, Reading and Leeds, and gained airplay on BBC Introducing, Radio 1 and Radio 2.

The Hardwickes have released three albums – their studio debut The Borderland, a live prison album At Her Majesty’s Pleasure, and most recently their sophomore album Fly The Flag.

See Hardwicke Circus at 7.30pm at The Brickyard on Saturday, December 23, with tickets available online for £14.
