Poster for Sanctum Sancturium at the venerable Watson Hall, Tewkesbury

Sanctum Sancturium @ the venerable Watson Hall, Tewkesbury, 17th September 2022, 7:30 – 11:00.  

As September creeps in the cost of heating debate will no doubt be ignited once more. Obviously, the all-important fresh start to a new school term will be blotted early on, however, hopefully the latest autumnal TV drama will not be as formulaic and predictable as your own banal life. Blimey, is this really all we have to look forward to?

Thankfully, To Have and To Hold Records, Tewkesbury’s independent record shop have allowed their 80s fixation to manifest itself on stage. For one night only the distinguished band Sanctum Sancturium will take to the Watson Hall stage (The holiest of holy places) and fill our worthy Hall with live songs from the darkside of the 80s.  

If your eyeliner-enhanced eyes become teary at the memory of Sisters of Mercy; if you doffed your black leather cowboy hat to the Cult; if you painted your finger-nails a delicate hue of black in homage to Bauhaus…no buts, this is the band for you: Sanctum Sancturium.     

Sanctum Sancturium have made a name for themselves due to their eye for detail with their outlandish outfits and stage craft – don’t believe me? – check-out their Youtube footage. This band is deadly serious about having fun. Funnily enough the band is just as forensic in their delivery, performance and musicality of the chosen songs. Unapologetically, your air guitar will prove useful for the opening of She Sells Sanctuary– so come prepared.

Prior preparation prevents poor performance and Sanctum Sancturium promise an excellent night of entertainment. Tickets are available online and in the To Have and To Hold shop alongside the memorial cross in Tewkesbury.

To help in the current financial climate Mel is giving away two pairs of tickets. Just pop into the shop and inform Mel of the original name of the Cult? Your name will added to an upside-down leather cowboy hat and the lucky winners will be informed on the FB page. Blimey, let’s be honest, even more exciting than a new series of Endeavour!

Tickets available from To Have to Hold Records
