An intimate socially-distanced gig featuring the frontmen of two of the UK’s foremost folk-punk bands, The Levellers and Ferocious Dog, has been rescheduled.

Mark Chadwick from The Levellers and Ferocious Dog’s Red Ken were due to play two sets at Newcastle University Students’ Union yesterday.

But due to the second lockdown, the gigs had to be postponed. They have been rearranged, and will now take place at the same venue on Saturday, February 27, 2021. All tickets remain valid.

The pair are playing matinee and evening sets, and as a bonus will now be joined by Ferocious Dog violinist Dan Booth.

Tickets for the Covid-secure gig are only available for tables of six, with very limited availability from

The Levellers, from Brighton, need little introduction; one of the most popular indie bands in the country in the ’90s, they once played to a record Glastonbury crowd of 300,000 people.

Ferocious Dog are from Nottinghamshire, and might not be as well known as The Levellers, but play a similar brand of folk-punk, and their live shows are usually lively affairs.

These ones will be much more sedate, however, as they will be acoustic sets, in front of an all-seated audience.
