Friends In Town

The Badgers had a most successful and enjoyable visit to The Erdington Conservative Club on 27th September 2015 and turned their “Strangers In Town” status to “Friends In Town”.

It was great to see some different faces in the audience, along with some familiar friends that have been regularly following us since our launch gig.

Stay tuned for upcoming news!!
