In case you hadn’t noticed, we love a good festival here at NARC. towers, but some of us (not me, OBVIOUSLY) are getting a bit old, and sometimes need a sit down and an early night, which is just one of the many many reasons Last Train Home is mint – the festival venues are scattered around the train station area and it all finishes early enough to get the last train home! (Depending on where you live, don’t come crying to me if you miss it, mind).

What am I burbling about? Last Train Home is Darlington’s newest multi-venue festival, which blends music and comedy in a rather fab line-up on Saturday 22nd September running from 1pm until 10pm. Organised by music collective Tracks in conjunction with us here at NARC. and Teesside funny bods Hilarity Bites Comedy Club, the festival will welcome a plethora of touring, regional and local talent in a host of interesting spaces in Darlington.

Our stage, at Bank Top Central on Yarm Road, contains a line-up worthy of your attention all day (although you must, of course, sample other delights in between acts!) Opening proceedings are compelling indie youngsters Dolphin Centre; followed by the shoegazy-psych leanings of Sticky Pearls; Gateshead trio Duchess, whose sound spans everything from pop to emo and alt. rock; electro popsters Talk Like Tigers; the awesome talents of vocal loop artist Eve Conway and blues songwriter Martha Hill and her band. The stage is headlined by Durham-based folk songwriter Harri Endersby, whose set alongside her musical cohort Rich on additional acoustic guitar and percussion will have the audience utterly mesmerised.

The full line-up for the festival is available online here, and features the musical talents of PINS, The Lovely Eggs, Bang Bang Romeo, The Van T’s, Barry Hyde, Tom Joshua among others, with comedy sets from John Whale, Eddy Brimson, Doug Segal, Cal Halbert and many more. Tickets cost a mere £15, and are available to buy here.

All aboard!
