Dire Streets are six of the the UK’s top tribute musicians, recreating the distinctive Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits with an attention to detail no other tribute can match.

Whatever else you’ve got planned for Sunday 5 September, give yourself a generous dollop of time to come on down to our first “Off the Rails” free festival.

There’ll be live music on the outdoor platform from the likes of Holder & Smith, Folk On and the Big R Big Band. Around and about the outside of the Shed there’ll be all kinds of impromptu entertainment for grown ups and children alike, with magic and storytelling as well as buskers and naturally a Beer Tent. There’ll be craft stalls inside the Shed itself, and of course the Whistle Stop café will be doing take-away meals, hot and cold drinks and scrumptious pastries all day.

Off the Rails is absolutely free. Just come on down to enjoy the fun!

Bands and Music

Holder and Smith

Firecracker fiddle and guitar duo with almost any genre at their disposal but with Gypsy Jazz underpinning their unique award winning sound. Jazz, Classical and Contemporary with violin and guitar. Unforgettable.

Folk On

Folk On, the finest comedy folk band to ever come out of the village of Little Dribblepatch … wherever that may be … write and play folk songs of unity and community, of solving conflicts and unyielding happiness. They also perform occasional songs about hopeless love lives, dead horses or Morris dancers.

“Folk On have made a niche genre accessible to a much younger audience…an experience not to be missed” – Greenbelt Festival Press

The Big R Band

A 16-piece big band from Bristol, the Big R Big Band are guaranteed to get you dancing. Dashing, debonair, dandy and dapper, the classic swing tunes of the 30’s and 40’s are looking, and sounding, pretty damn good. The fabulous Jiving Jimmy will be along with his swing dancers to liven things up.


The captivating rhythms of this collective of top notch musicians traverse an acoustic spectrum with a British/European folk core and smatterings of roots, jazz, gypsy and pop at the edges. Dryadic’s melodies bring the work of singer & songwriter Zora to life with harmonies and hooks, underpinning candid, heartfelt lyrics that ride on a silky wave of acoustic guitars, strings, pianos and acoustic bass.


Magic Timmy

Delights for younger and older children, mixing songs, magic tricks and puppetry with a dazzling unicycling and juggling.

John Row, Storyteller

A really good story is a rarity in our ‘content’-filled world but veteran storyteller John Row John skilfully casts his spell on old and young alike with tales like ‘Grandfather All Know’, ‘Mossycoat’, ‘Kate Crackernuts’ and ‘The Golden Ram’ as well as humorous children’s stories like ‘Lazy Jack’ and ‘The Old Woman and the Pig’. Find him in the storytelling tent near the play area.



Including Alan Brinley Shaw on classical guitar and Becky Darrow, hula hooping, face painting and colouring tables.

Craft Stalls

Local and regional crafts on sale inside the main hall from 11am to 4pm.

Food and Drink

Promising Young Woman(15) afternoon

9 September | 2:00 pm - 3:55 pm

9 September | 7:30 pm - 9:25 pm

Oscar Winner for best Original Screenplay

A young woman, traumatized by a tragic event in her past, seeks out vengeance against those who crossed her path.

From visionary director Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve) comes a delicious new take on revenge. Everyone said Cassie (Carey Mulligan) was a promising young woman… until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future. But nothing in Cassie’s life is what it appears to be: she’s wickedly smart, tantalizingly cunning, and she’s living a secret double life by night. Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs of the past in this thrilling and wildly entertaining story.

Mulligan is fantastic and heart-breaking as Cassie.

A boldly provocative, timely thriller, Promising Young Woman is an auspicious feature debut for writer-director Emerald Fennell — and a career highlight for Carey Mulligan.

Not since “Hard Candy” have I enjoyed such an enticing revenge story. Mulligan is at her best, showing such complex emotions. She varies from cold-hearted to heart-breaking.

One of the most impressive directing debuts I’ve ever seen, and a film that will remain embedded in my mind for a long time.

Latest Covid guidance

While we are grateful that we can begin to operate in a more normal way, we are mindful that throughout the pandemic we have said that we will always put the wellbeing of our community first. We will continue to do so and we have decided, therefore, that for the rest of the summer we should keep some distancing practices in place.

We will continue to have a reduced capacity in the auditorium at many events; to ask staff and customers to wear a mask if possible – though the good news is you can remove them when seated during an event – and to be conscious of social distancing in general. This will be harder for us financially but we think it is the right thing to do. We are open (performances, café and for other groups) as we have been whenever possible in this challenging period. We hope you understand, and that we can relax more fully in a couple of months.

Your support of us throughout this period has been humbling and we will do all we can to make your visits to the Goods Shed and café both comfortable and exciting.
