The Full Brontë is a riotous cabaret. A celebration of the lives and times of the Brontë sisters. Hosted by larger-than-life comperes, Nom de Plume and Monika, this intimate and engaging homage to English literature’s most famous sorority will inform and entertain its audience in equal measures.Theatregoers will be lead on a wild journey through the lives and works of all the Brontë sisters with music, song, comedy and audience participation.
With clear references to the mid-60s sounds of Greenwich Village, the canny combination of blues, folk and indie-rock ’n’ roll that emerged from their solo selves is spellbinding, sitting somewhere between the riff-driven energy of Jack White and the expansive melodies of First Aid Kit (“Alt-Simon & Garfunkel” - The Guardian).
Renowned for his prowess as a slide guitarist, Martin Harley is almost unique in the UK as a lap slide player. His live shows are stunningly good, 'A spellbinding 50 minutes' said The Observer.
Martin's British Americana sound is influenced by Delta Blues and Gyspy Swing, he has incorporated a plethora of influences from around the world, and honed the classic song writing style he has today.
The mighty Backbeat Soundsystem return to their home Cornwall to make their first appearance at The Old Bakery Truro on October 12th. We've been chasing these guys for sometime now and are stoked that they've agreed to play for us.
Backbeat Soundsystem brings 8 musicians to the stage who create pure reggae live and direct. Emerging from Cornwall where reggae and ska are at the core of the vibe they immediately stood head and shoulders above the rest having developed a sound that pulls in influences from all across the music spectrum, to create their vision of modern reggae.
From the critically-acclaimed rap storyteller behind Grandad and the Machine comes a raucous new gig theatre show about England’s forgotten revolution. Featuring original live music inspired by hip hop and cinematic scores, Jeremiah tells the incredible true story of the much-misunderstood Luddite rebellion – a movement that spanned the whole North of England.
Brother and Bones built their reputation the old-fashioned way, taking to the stage at every opportunity since 2011. The band’s debut album (recorded at the East West studios, Los Angeles) was put down in 10 days, described as ‘a melting pot of tribal drums and fizzing guitars, with folk and blues sentiments at its core’
The John Fairhurst Duo played The Old Bakery last year and fair took the roof off the venue, leaving venue owner Cath King hailing it as gig of the year 2018. The good news is John's back in 2019 with his new three piece so expect it to be even better than last time round!
Deep within the confounds of the 300 year old Blewett's Bakery, The Hús Project presents a mysterious and captivating one night Halloween extravaganza.
Ticket price: £8 (+BF) for a limited time only

Speakers From The Edge presents James Ketchell is the only person on the planet to have summited Everest, rowed the Atlantic and cycled the world! Despite a serious motorbike accident in 2007, which left his leg shattered and his active lifestyle in jeopardy, in 2014 British adventurer James became the first person to have completed the ‘Ultimate Triathlon’. James delivers his tales of adventure, endeavour and determination, in an evening experience that will undoubtedly leave young and old feeling motivated and inspired with life lessons learned by the adventurer himself.
Hailing from the Isle of Man via Brighton, Penelope Isles is the collaboration of brother and sister Jack and Lily Wolter.
The band mix waves of ambient delays and fuzz guitar noise, sonic dynamics and melodic pop hooks entwined with girl-boy harmonies. Their self-produced home recordings portray an honest lo-fi approach when capturing their own music. Their live set is hypnotic, captivating and moving, smeared with glistening psych, dreamlike chimes, and potency that will transfix and satisfy.
Northern Irish experimental folk songwriter and producer Joshua Burnside is something of a regional anomaly. With a brooding, powerful sound echoing artists of places afar and time long gone, his enthralling craft defies local comparison in striving towards an aesthetic as much as visual as it is sonic. Balanced with a diverse palette of sounds, Burnside deftly blends alt-folk and elements of the Irish folk song tradition with South American rhythms and Eastern European influences, whilst introducing synthetic and found-sounds, synths loops and crunching beats to create a stormy world that shifts and swirls perspective like a lingering lucid dream.
Old Bakery stalwart, the much loved Gaz Brookfield returns to The Bakery on November 29th. If you were there last time, you'll know you want to be there this time, if you missed it, get this one in your diary, you will not be disappointed! A must for fans of The Levellers, New Model Army, Seth Lakeman, Frank Turner, The Wonder Stuff, Newton Faulkner, all of whom he has supported on tour.
