Harberton Folk is delighted to be presenting one of the few concerts that the Gigspanner Big Band will be performing together in 2018: a very special event featuring the Gigspanner trio of Peter Knight, guitarist Roger Flack and percussionist Sacha Trochet, augmented by Philip Henry and Hannah Martin.
Free on-site parking. Licensed bar.
Harberton's Church House Inn's kitchen will be opening early at 5pm for a pre-concert meal service, bookings only. The pub is only a short walk from the Hall.

Time permitting, advance payment is required in all cases.
If possible, please email gbb@harbertonfolk.co.uk to confirm your ticket requirements (and ticket availability) before arranging payment.

Normally, email is our preferred method of contact, but if you need to phone, our number is 01803 863468.
Except in case of dire emergency, please call only between 10am and 6pm. (This is a private, home number.)
If you get the answering machine, please do speak slowly and clearly and leave your number for us to call you back on, or please call again at a different time.
We really do prefer to communicate by email as far as possible. We will always reply to all emails received, so if you don't receive a reply, try again and/or phone (10am to 6pm) to check. Emails do sometimes go astray!

Concert proceeds in aid of Harberton Parish Hall.

Direct Bank Transfer

We are happy to give you the bank account number and sort code to enable you to purchase your tickets in this way, FREE of charge.

We need your email address so we can send confirmation of receipt of payment and tell you your ticket number(s). There's no need to print this email - Just give your name on arrival at the Box Office at Harberton Parish Hall on the night of the concert.

Please be sure to give us your telephone number(s), for emergency use only.


Online Ticketing

Sorry, with only a handful of tickets remaining, this option is no longer available.

Refunds can only be considered once a sell-out is achieved, and if tickets can be easily resold to a waiting list. Any refund (less a possible handling charge) will be made either by cheque, posted to the relevant person after the event, or by bank transfer.


Dine Early at the Church House Inn

The Church House Inn kitchen will be opening early at 5pm specially for this concert, with the normal menu available.
Pre-bookings only - call the Church House Inn on 01803 863707 or email info@churchhouseharberton.co.uk.
Please park at Harberton Parish Hall. Parking space at the pub is extremely limited.



With the Gigspanner Big Band concert at Harberton Parish Hall on Friday 27th April having sold out, we're now sending the following information to all emailable ticket holders:
Pre-concert dining option at the nearby Church House Inn
The pub kitchen will be opening early, at 5.00pm, offering the normal menu - Bookings only, call 01803 863707. Please park at the Hall; space in front of the pub is very limited. Allow good time for your meal - sorry, but concert seating cannot be reserved at the Hall.
The attached/embedded map shows routes into Harberton from the north. The red 'X', at the junction where the road from the south/Harbertonford enters the village, marks a large deep pothole currently in the middle of the road.
I don't use a Satnav, but if they use the same postcode information as Google Maps, TQ9 7SA is the best one to enter (rather than the Hall's postal address code).
Parking will initially be on the hardstanding car parks at the Hall; later arrivals on the playing field grass. Please follow the instructions of the hi-vis stewards.
Disabled facilities/access
The Hall has disabled facilities and disabled access. We are not currently aware of any disabled access/parking/wheelchair space requirements for any ticket holders. If you know any different, please let us know in advance so we can make any necessary arrangements.
We will aim to open Doors and Bar at 7.15pm for an 8.00pm concert start. From experience we know that some audience members are likely to arrive earlier. The concert is fully seated, but all seating is unreserved/unallocated - i.e. first come first served on the night.
NB Seating is on ordinary stacking plastic chairs - unpadded - so you may wish to bring your own additional padding!
Note that in the unlikely event of inclement weather there is minimal indoor queueing space in a small porch. If we can open Doors earlier (i.e. sound checking and all preparations completed), then we will.
As far as I am aware, the evening will comprise two 45 to 60-minute sets with one interval for as long as bar and merchandise (and raffle) take.
The evening is likely to finish by about 10.30pm.
A licensed bar will run from Doors open until the start of the concert and again during the interval. The bar will be selling real ale, wine, bottled lager, canned cider, Luscombe Farm hot ginger beer and elderflower bubbly, and fruit squash. Tap water will also be available (no bottled water).
There will be a raffle in aid of Harberton Playing Field Association.
The concert itself is a fundraiser for Harberton Parish Hall.
Ticket returns
Should you find that due to illness or other pressing reason you will be unable to use a purchased ticket, let us know a.s.a.p. as we may be able to re-sell the ticket(s) to a waiting list. Refunds for any ticket returns successfully re-sold will be dealt with after the concert date, by bank transfer or cheque, and may be subject to a small handling charge.

If I've forgotten anything, or you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask, preferably by replying to this email, or if you're desperate, call us on 01803 863468.

We look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones when we welcome you to Harberton for the concert.
Very best wishes
John & Jan
