VILLAGE HALL, OLD
In Kontra's early years our main concert venue was at the Community Centre in Finedon, Northants. This imaginatively converted methodist church, with its wonderful acoustics and atmosphere, was a fantastic venue for roots music, and from 2008 to 2013 we held some truly wonderful concerts there featuring prominent name acts from the worlds of folk, blues, roots and beyond: Julie Felix, The Bonzos, Wizz Jones, Richard Digance, The Pretty Things, Rory McLeod, The Daniel Smith Blues Band, Gary Fletcher, Bex Marshall, Emily Maguire, and many more. Unfortunately, declining ticket sales in 2013 meant the venue was no longer financially viable for regular music events, but though we now hold our concerts elsewhere, we are left with wonderful memories of some truly great gigs.
A modern, fully-equipped hall with 100 capacity in the award winning village of Old, near Northampton (where we also hold our Cottage Concerts), this venue is ideal for both concerts and dance bands. We started putting on music events here in 2014 and since that time have built up an enthusiastic audience for quality roots music, to the extent that nearly all our shows here attract capacity audiences.
