Biddulph Up In Arms

The team at Biddulph Up In Arms are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our main man, Mr Craig Pickering on 4th February 2021 after a long battle against cancer. Our thoughts are with Jo and Jen, his friends and family.


The Kris Drever gig has been moved from Friday September 24th to Thursday October 14th to fit in with Kris’ re-arranged autumn tour.

We are delighted to announce that Lauren Housley (and band) will be playing at Biddulph Town Hall on Friday 26th November. Ttracks from Lauren’s new album have been playlisted on Radio 2! Lauren first played Biddulph Up In Arms in 2016.

Grammy nominated and IBMA award winner Sierra Hull has been booked for Biddulph Town Hall on Saturday 4th December – tickets here

Good news – the Honey Ryder/Emily Lockett gig has been rearranged for Wednesday 8th December at St Lawrence’s Church Biddulph – all previous tickets remain valid (Please note – the old date may still appear on the link above until We Got Tickets update at their end.)

Hot off the press, we received the following statement from The Magpie Arc – “Sadly, the national restrictions into late June due to Covid-19 have meant that The Magpie Arc will not be able to physically convene in time to produce the quality of live show that the line-up demands, and so it’s with a very heavy heart that they will have to cancel their current commitments for 2021.

As a result, the (many-times rearranged) Biddulph gig will not be going ahead on October 30th. “We Got Tickets” will issue refunds for all who booked through them.

The Jarrod Dickenson/David Ford gig has unfortunately been cancelled – due to uncertainty over COVID 19 and rather than reschedule for a third time, Jarrod and David have decided to cancel the tour. Refunds will be generated by those who bought from We Got Tickets once they have processed the cancellation.

The Secret Sisters gig and 2021 summer UK tour has unfortunately (but not unexpectedly) been cancelled.Refunds will be automatically issed from We Got Tickets

Unfortunately the Daphne’s Flight gig this year has had to be cancelled – the whole tour is moving to 2022 and we are unable to accommodate the new dates. Refunds will be issued automatically from We Got Tickets for those who have bought in advance.

Kris Drever moved to 24th September – Biddulph Town Hall

The James Grant gig on 8th May has had to be postponed because of the timetable of the government’s exit plan not allowing gigs at this time. We are looking to reschedule.

Diana Jones has now been moved to Friday 8th October 2021

We are in the process of re-scheduling a number of gigs for 2021 and 2022, which you can imagine, is a difficult process with many uncertain variables. Dates for 2021 which still appear on our gig list will remain on-sale and tickets will be valid for any rearranged date and refunds will be offered if they are cancelled or if you are unable to make the new date.
