Indie night to take place for second time at The Navigation, Newark, after huge success


By Sharon Hodkin


After the success of the first indie at The Navigation, the Newark venue is to host a second. It takes place this Saturday, with a full night of music planned.

Four acts will take to the stage at the Millgate venue from 8pm, finishing with headliners Left Hand Lane.

The Navigation hosts live acts every weekend, but has launched a series of nights dedicated to specific genres.

Navigation owner Dave Duddles said: “The first indie night we held was a massive success. We had great feedback from it ­— so we decided to hold another.

“We are proud to support original music. A lot of artists struggle to get heard outside of the cities so The Navigation has become the go to place. To catch these artists in Newark is brilliant.

“Our plan is to continue to support original music and our diary is already getting booked up.”

Kicking off the night is Wilted Flower, a talented solo singer-songwriter and poet from Nottingham.

Her debut album, Grow In The Dark, was released last month.

She is followed by Fading Blonde, who have played at the Navigation before.

They are a four-piece indie-rock band from Nottingham who only started out early last year.

They describe themselves as having an expansive outlook on how to write classic indie songs with hints of more experimental genres.

This year has been a big one for the band, with a host of gigs and new releases.

Next up is George Gadd, a solo performer, who has been performing live since his parents gave him a guitar at 16.

He has played at festivals and shows across the UK, Europe and the US.

Finally, the headliners, Left Hand Lane, take to the stage.

The alternative indie-rock band was formed in Nottingham in late 2017, regularly playing gigs in their home city.
