Huw Eddy & The Carnival will headline Gullivers in Manchester on 22nd of December. It will be very much an end of year celebration “hootenanny” event. Support comes from local acts Lewis and Becky and Ramona Rose and will be a celebration of the year that has passed with a brilliant mix of folk, americana rock and pop.
The show will also be raising money on the night for local charity and project ‘Reclaim’ who help disadvantaged working class children aged 12-15 with leadership and entrepreneurial programmes. More about the charity below.
