If you are looking for star quality entertainment, then reach for the Star Inn in Guilford. Surrey's oldest pub has been entertaining customers for over four hundred years, and holds the record for the longest running live music venue.
That might once have been a problem for weary travellers who wanted to stay for the night, as I doubt they got much sleep with all they noise going on downstairs. But now The Star Inn is a pub, and pub alone, the music can go on into the wee hours of the night and not disturb anyone.
The Star may be old, but it's entertainment is as fresh as the food it serves. On the 17th April SED Records presents four of its most talented bands from 8pm. Tickets are £5 and you must be 18 or over to attend.
Starting off with their headline act, Hornet has been creating a real buzz lately. The four punk rockers can be easily identified by their use of pyrotechnics, smoke, dry ice, and confetti cannons.
They will be supported by Nylon Sky. Guilford is their hometown, so go and support your own local talent, which includes Tony Humphries doing vocals, Tom Vernon on guitar, Stuart Brooker on the drums and percussion, and Nai-ik Ogue with his bass.
Also from Guilford is Chris Nugent's brainchild, White Pigeon. While a white dove might symbolise peace, you won't find that here. They describe themselves as the Sea Devil, producing 'proper rock, like your mum made!'
Nine Miles South combines hard rock with riffy country music. Their influences include ACDC, Deep Purple, Ozzy Osbourne, and Guns n' Roses.
