Don your Stetson for The Lancashire Hotpots A Fistful of Scratchcards 2015 tour

Comedy-folk band The Lancashire Hotpots bring their new album ‘A Fistful of Scratchcards’ to The Met on Saturday 4 July.

Formed in December 2006 and hailing from St Helens, The Lancashire Hotpots record songs about Lancashire life and British culture making use of the Lancashire dialect. For their new tour they are donning their Stetsons and saddling up their horses for an evening of music, comedy and a bit of the Wild West. Fans can expect to hear all the favourites including Chippy Tea and Shopmobility Scooter as well as a rootin’ tootin’ country and western hoedown.


‘Master’s of parody’ The Guardian


With 9 albums under their belts The Lancashire Hotpots are one of the biggest comedy bands around. They started to record songs to comedically combat the excessive number of emo bands that began appearing around the early noughties and have gone on to record songs that celebrate a multitude of British traditions and Lancashire institutions. A festival favourite, having played at Kendal Calling and CarFest, they are a band much loved by fans and critics alike.
