‘Old Haunts’ Launch Party Tickets


Most of you will have received an email notification with the purchase details of the ‘Old Haunts’ CD launch party, but I’ll mention it here because there are a lot of BT email users who don’t receive the email notifications (due to BT deciding that you didn’t REALLY want this information that you subscribed to? 😳).

Anyway...the launch party will be held on the 9th November at the Clothworker’s Hall in Leeds.

Tickets will be £60 and strictly limited in numbers due to the venue’s capacity.


As well as a preview of the album, introduced by Bill and a chance to purchase a signed copy of the album ahead of general release, Bill will also be performing live!


The tickets will go on sale at 17:00 GMT on Saturday 10th August...first come, first served.

Here’s the link to purchase them from


If last year’s eve is anything to go by, the tickets will sell out very quickly, so please don’t delay!!!


Further info will appear on Dreamsville in due course!



Excellent idea to give advance notice of a date on which the tickets will be sold. If it wasn't for this new routine I probably would have already missed out as I have only just looked at my emails for the first time since last Thursday! So that I can be prepared could I ask if PayPal will be the payment method? I need to make sure the money is in the correct place when I press the button!

Just to confirm, the £60 ticket cost does NOT include the price of the signed CD? In previous years, the launch CD has been part of the ticket price.

Yes, the album is not included in the ticket price but signed copies will be available to buy at the event, (exactly the same as last year.)

As my albums are now being manufactured and distributed by Burning Shed rather than SOS, there has been some changes in the way that sales revenue is handled. Also, including the album in the ticket price means a higher price ticket, which some people may not want. This way fans have the option of buying the pre-release album on the day or waiting to buy it later directly from Burning Shed.

Can you also confirm that we don't have to log in to the booking site to buy tickets. Vital seconds can be lost setting up an account.

If live streaming the show is still being contemplated, I would definitely be on board for that. I really enjoyed last year's live stream for the Auditoria launch. Nothing can match the in-person experience (which I was fortunate enough to have for the New Northern Dream launch), but I'll take the next best thing. If the live stream isn't happening this year, I'll still be there in spirit. Just ordered Old Haunts. In any event, have a great show, Bill, and all the best to you.

I will be travelling up on the day and returning after the event the same day by car. Does anyone wish to share the journey with me from Kent via London and then on to Leeds?

Oct 24

Looking forward to seeing you Peter (and all my fellow Nelsonians).

Ian Haydock, Eddie McSheffrey,Duncan Noons, Paul Gilby,Jon Wallinger,Martin Bostock, Caroline and Colin Hunter are such a great team and a lovely bunch of warm hearted people who always organise a wonderful event ..right from the Nelsonica`s to the recent event. All of friends really are good people and it was fab seeing old and new faces .I must say a big thank you to a great guy Mike Robinson for donating the magnificent guitar which Bill kindly personalised with his unique style of artwork. Thanks to everyone who purchased tickets for the charity prize draw and congratulations to the worthy winner.Another special guy who is a loyal supporter of Sara`s charity Paul Cosgrove presented us with a cheque for 322.50 from his work and our lovely friend from Ireland made a cash donation - Thank you Eugene and Noleen ! In total the charity raised an amazing 1679.50 GBP... We were over the moon but not surprised as Bill and his Nelsonian family have always been very generous to our daughters charity .
