Rocking into the Christmas spirit with the much-loved Cumbrian folk outfit. Expect some seasonal songs, some old favourites, and maybe the odd surprise.

Tryckster is a six-piece west Cumbrian Folk-rock band peddling original folk tune-driven songs with a social conscience. Tryckster provided the soundtrack to a lot of late night carousing in the early noughties, releasing an album on Fellside Records and garnering Radio 2 play before going their separate ways.

In 2016 they reformed for what was intended as a one-off special at the Kirkgate. The response was so enthusiastic – and the band had such a good time, rediscovering the original creative chemistry – that Tryckster has entered a new lease of life with gigs and community workshops across the county and beyond.

The Kirkgate Centre is a COVID19 secure venue.
We ask customers not to attend if any of the following symptoms are present:
- a new and persistent cough
- a high temperature
- any loss of, or change to, your sense of smell/taste
Hand sanitiser is provided upon entry to the building, and additional cleaning measures have been introduced.
There is a one way system in operation, and persons visiting the building must leave their name and contact number on entry.
(Please note this is not required for those who have booked in advance for a show, or those attending classes where records of attendees are already kept).

Face coverings must be worn inside the building and all safety signs and advice must be adhered to by all staff, volunteers and visitors.
Thank you for your patience at this challenging time.
