THREE friends are hoping to create a buzz around Warrington’s music scene with regular band nights at Friars Court. Read the full interview  on the Warrington Guardian Website here.

Sophie Cade, Seb Caddick and Ben Hoyles are launching Friars Live on Saturday, October 29, with performances by Delphina Kings, Fort Myers, Polareyes and The Hotspur Press.

They were inspired after hosting a fundraising concert for the Viola Beach Memorial Fund at the Barbauld Street venue in September.

Sophie, a former Lymm High School pupil said: “Viola Beach cracked it. They had found their place in the music industry and their potential as a band was so refreshing to see.

“Although under unfortunate circumstances, hopefully their legacy can inspire Warrington bands, venues and promoters to take advantage of the number of incredible music fans there are in the town.

“I have wanted to generate a regular live music event in Warrington for some time as I believe that the all-important starting platform for bands is missing in the town.

Friars Live on Saturday, October 29, will feature Delphina Kings who recently played at Warrington Festival, Fort Myers who were part of Manchester’s Indie Week festival and Polareyes who have been invited back after their set at the Viola Beach fundraiser.

Headlining the night is The Hotspur Press, an emerging Manchester band who have recently signed to B33 Management.

Tickets can be bought in advance online. Visit and search for Friars Live.
