Kings Heath is one of the best places to live, work and shop. There are so many reasons why we are so confident about this fact, and one of them is that we are lucky to have such an amazing venue like the Hare and Hounds on our High Street/side street depending on how you look at it.

It has been a very busy year for them, delivering an exquisite array of live shows, tip top DJ sets – not to mention winning awards and accolades left right and centre! They really do make us proud to have them! This year will also mark 5 years of All Years Leaving, and the Hare and Hounds have put together some words for us below, so with out further ado over to them.


Now in its jubilant fifth year, All Years Leaving Festival returns this Autumn with its most eclectic line up yet which should establish it as one of the most ambitious new music festivals on the indoor circuit.

The festival, hosted by This Is Tmrw, will once again see a host of internationally acclaimed bands play  alongside local favourites. Saturday 21 October will be headlined by This Is Tmrw favourites SPRING KING, easily one of the best live acts around who have smashed through the festival circuit all summer long without fail. Also on the Saturday sees the return of Manchester’s PINS, the dreamy sunshine pop of THE ORIELLES, SAVOY MOTEL, HERS and locals TERROR WATTS.

Sunday steps up the volume even more with the pulsating kraut-rock of MATTERS opening the day, local heroes SUNSHINE FRISBEE LASERBEAM, fiery punk rock from DOWNTOWN BOYS, DIET CIG, and Washington DC’s PRIESTS, AYL returnees TRAAMS and finally headliners IDLES whose heavy post-punk is sure to whip up a frenzy at the festivals close. A host of other acts will also grace the Stables stage in between the main room acts.
