The exclusive, ticket-only acoustic night at Harrogate Theatre Studio this Saturday night starring Karl Culley has a more arty angle than fans of this talented singer-songwriter may realise.

As well as featuring an excellent sleeve designed by Greig Johnson and Rhys Jones for his new album Phosphor, the gig’s support act Dragonfly Tattoo can boast an artistic angle. Even the poster for the show was partly designed by a graduate of Glasgow School of Art.
