Hovel

In late 2014, Young Thugs started within the tiny secretary’s office at our home within South Bank Social Club, York. The room had not been opened for many years.
This tiny, sweaty and horribly dank yet vivacious, often precarious and wonderfully graffiti daubed room now hosts 6 intimate gigs a year.
We give you the Hovel Sessions…
