Take five Northern blokes, dress them in flat caps, get them to sing folk songs about the wonders of modern day life and you have the recipe for fun that is The Lancashire Hotpots. Since forming in 2007, The Lancashire Hotpots have become local heros touring with Paddy McGuinness and playing Glastonbury Festival, twice. The band have had real ales named after them and have firmly reinstated the conga as an essential part of everybody’s good night out.
With rousing anthems such as Chippy Tea, the Hotpots are a fun filled rollercoaster of musical comedy singing the praises of ale, chips and having a great time. We'll see you at the bar!
