All aboard to The Platform!

Steaming into one of Swindon's most interesting venues in the heart of the Heritage Quarter and rather handily placed for warm-ups and "Afters" in the rather splendid "Glue Pot", The Magnificent AK47 are promoting their very own show at The Platform.

Former location of STEAM we very much hope you will come along and help witness us fill this venue with sublime sounds of silliness and deep meaningful man-moments and the finest examples of BlokeSong from around these parts.

Guaranteed to raise a smile and set the hairs on the back of your neck to RAISED the blokes promise another great show so get your tickets from

Shed heaven

What a great pleasure it was to revisit Singing in the Shed this weekend...!

Such fabulous fun singing some beautiful and some fantastically energising pieces of music with a great bunch of blokes - even the 7:30am fire alarm that got everybody out of the hostel in the rain didn't dampen the experience.

And remember please gentlemen, "TWO rows".

Looking forward to BlokeFest already - but if you haven't already got your ticket then you had better head over to to get it as there are even fewer left after this weekend.

Two more sleeps till Singing in the Shed 2017

Not long now till many of us pack our ear plugs and BlokeFest T-Shirts and head up North and West a bit for this year's Singing in the Shed extravaganza.

Have a look at some of the interesting nuggets at and not forgetting that it is now only four months to go to BlokeFest which has only a few dozen tickets left on sale already so hop on over to to secure yours before they are all gone.

And happy singing, Shedders.  Hopefully some pics and stories will emerge.
