This is an event I am really looking forward to. Any regular readers of this blog will know all about Wooden Arms and how they have grown and developed at a rapid pace, doing something quite uniquely beautiful. The same goes for the launch of their EP which promises to be another exciting event, and the first time I will have attended a gig at the Octagon Chapel (built in 1756) in Norwich, indeed it will be my first visit there, but I am sure the acoustics will suit the band’s sound perfectly. Advance tickets are £5, or for the special price of £7 you can buy a ticket and the EP. Otherwise admission on the night will be £7 and the EP can be purchased for £4. It makes sense to get the special deal and to be there.
Further details from the band’s event page on Facebook can be found below. It promises to be a lovely and memorable event.

~ About the venue ~
The Octagon Chapel is a grade-II listed building that was built in 1756 by Thomas Ivory – the architect who designed the Assembly House and the old Norfolk and Norwich Hospital. It is perfectly octagonal and retains its ecclesiastical eighteenth century interior. It’s situated in Colegate, just between the Playhouse and Magdalen Street. Naturally, there is no bar at this venue so please feel free to bring your own. However, please respect the venue by drinking responsibly.
~ About the EP ~
“Wooden Arms have emerged with a brooding and delicate classical-folk song that is smothered in subtlety, tension and lush reverb”. – THE 405 on the release of Separate the Verb.
Wooden Arms, the self-titled EP by the Norwich-based quintet, took nearly 2 years to write and 9 months to record. Thanks to the sonic talents of producer David Pye (Wild Beasts, iLiKETRAiNS) this anticipated release is a fully-formed 6-track EP.
More information regarding the production of the EP and those very special guests to be announced soon
