Event Details

John Lawrie & The Welcome Strangers on Wednesday 24th November 2021 @ The Vanguard has new show times and will now be hosted within the one show.
 NEW SHOW TIMES - 7.00pm - 11.30pm 

Your tickets have been exchanged into the above times and are automatically valid for this new date, you do not need to take any further action if you are able to attend the event.

You’ve been waiting. We’ve been waiting. It’s finally here. John Lawrie & The Welcome Strangers are welcoming you back to live music with one of our trademark high energy live shows of sad songs with a smile. With John’s crooning baritone, dreamy atmospheres, and indie rock beats that’ll get you feeling melancholy on the dance floor, it’s sure to be a wild night. Come along to hear some of your old favourites, songs off our First Dates and Funerals EP that have never been heard live, and even a couple of newbies we’re excited to share with you. In fact, we’re so excited, we’ve decided to record the whole night so you can take it home in a little Tupperware and enjoy it again later. You won’t want to miss this!
