The Blowpipes had a final blast at The Klinker before the legendary club was suspended for at least 12 months, with a free-blowing set that included old favourites such as Under This Stone and The Flinchtones, plus the odd ode.

Vis the Spoon presided at a bonanza of festive music and nonsense at The Cross Kings: The Spoonful Christmas Mash-Up. Trombone poetry set sail in a torrent of turns, including Rock & Roll Steve, the enigmatic Jude Cowan, the adventurous Maria Slovakova, thewhatthe Dangerous T, and the unstoppable Spinmaster Plantpot.
