The Uplifter at The Talking Heads

The Talking Heads, 16-22 The Polygon, Southampton

The Uplifter is back at it's favourite venue!

NEWS FLASH! These shows in 2016 are taking a new tack... Shows in 2016 at the new Talking Heads START AND FINISH EARLIER Which to be honest, we're quite excited about. People who travel to the shows can easily get to the train station before last train (station less than 10 mins walk) and we get to finish the show at a sociable hour rather than leaving at around 6am once we're all packed away :D

So, here are the details:

Show starts - 7:30pm Show finishes - 11:30pm Trains - Southampton Central 10 mins walk

Venue Address: The Talking Heads 16-22 The Polygon Southampton Hampshire SO15 2BN United Kingdom

Tel: 02380 361970

I can't shout from the roof tops enough about the following: 1. The new Talking Heads venue looks and sounds AMAZING 2. The location of the venue is a stones throw away from the train station with ample parking 3. The staff at the venue are PROPER LOVELY :) 4. We genuinely can't wait!
