Message from Tonbridge Castle Events – It is with immense sadness that the organisers of The Walled Garden Music Festival announce today that due to difficult trading conditions and unforeseen circumstances the festival will not take place this September at Tonbridge Castle. Since the announcement of the festival in September 2022, the economic climate has deteriorated on a monthly basis with significant rises in the cost of living also. Sadly we are not alone as a number of other small independent festivals have announced cancellations recently.
We will be contacting all ticket purchasers tomorrow with details concerning full refunds.

15 May 2023 - Competition Winner
We had a lot of entries in to the competition to win a signed test pressing of 3D. Thank you all.
Message from John:
I had been trying to get a record deal for ‘Cox & Drummie’ since 1983, playing demos of their new songs to the A&R people at pretty much all of the major record labels. None of them were interested in signing ‘Cox and Drummie’.
So, at the beginning of 1984 I decided we needed to arrange to record really good versions of the two most commercial tunes. at which point Peter and Richard asked their good friend Gary Stevenson to produce the songs.
In February 1984 they went into Chipping Norton Recording Studios and recorded ‘Call Me’ and ‘We Close Our Eyes’ – The correct answer.
The day after Gary mixed the two tracks I took them into the boys’ publishers, ATV Music, and gave a cassette of the songs to our contact Sally Perryman.
The following day Sally played the songs to Ron Fair, the A&R man from the US part of Chrysalis Record, who loved them and that same afternoon he called me and we agreed a deal for Go West to sign to Chrysalis Records.
Our winner: Naoki Sawada! Congratulations Naoki. We’ll be in touch to arrange delivery of your prize.
Watch out for the next competition coming very soon. There are still some test pressings available in the shop.
