26 January 2018
Get ready for a fun February around the river filled with great events and things to do, here's our highlights...
Dub Pistols at Princess Pavilion
As they gear up to celebrate 20 years of unhinged lunacy, the Dub Pistols return to Falmouth with their seventh studio album, Crazy Diamonds.
One of the hardest working bands in showbusiness, Barry Ashworth and his motley crew have added a much-needed swagger to the UK dance scene in recent years and new album ‘Crazy Diamonds’ finds the band at their uncontrollable, bass-driven best. Expect a full-on dub-quaking extravaganza with a rampant mix of dub, reggae, ska, punk, breaks, beats and drum ‘n’ bass.
