Sunday 23 September at the Ships and Giggles, previously the Ship Inn, International Recording Artist Seamus Mcloughlin play an acoustic set. Seamus has opened shows for the likes of The Alarm in America and more recently to a 1,500 sold out audience at The Gathering in Llandudno, North Wales, in addition to the likes of Ocean Colour Scene, Reef, David Garza, Kasey Chambers, The Wonderstuff and David Mead.
The Ship & Gigs, as it is also known, is Preston’s newist student and live lounge bar in the heart of the student district, converted into a 500-capacity live music venue.
It’s run by Andy MacDonald who also fronts Macs Bar in the City and promotion company Your Best Deal (YBD) – see the giant mural to the side of the building. He spent £150,000 refurbishing the pub to create what he describes as a live lounge feel.
