Andy Day, Star of Childrenâs TV, proudly presents ANDY AND THE ODD SOCKS!!
âThe best band in the world (according to their mums)!â
Widely known for his antics tackling dinosaurs, baby animals and being on safari, much loved childrenâs BBC TV presenter Andy Day has spent the last 18 months playing gigs, releasing music and championing the hugely successful and far reaching âOdd Socks Dayâ for Anti-Bullying Week with his brilliant band âAndy and the Odd Socksâ.
Andy truly rocks out as the Odd Sockâs front man with Rio from Planet Rock on guitar, the mega Moxy on drums, cool Blu on bass and crazy Cousin Mac on the keys (and hoover, donât ask!)
Fast becoming one of the UKâs most popular live acts for kids, Andy and the Odd Socks have played over 50 shows up and down the country, including countless festivals, Glastonbury, Camp Bestival, Gloworm, Big Feastival, Shambala, Port Eliot, Standon Calling and many more. The band also opened the BBCâs very first childrenâs festival, CBBC Summer Social in Liverpool in August 2018 playing all 3 days on the main stage to an amazing reaction, â When Andy and the Odd Socks performed I have to say it was like a headline act at Glastonbury had come onto the stage â the crowd went bananas!â
With their own shows taking them round the country, and multiple performances at the incredibly popular Butlins resorts, Andy and the Odd Socks are introducing kids to live music for the first timeâŚ.and thatâs why the kids (and mum and dad too) love them!
2018 was topped off with the Odd Socks performing live on TV as the house band on the CBeebies Christmas Special from the Alder Hay Hospital.

- Market Square
- Known for their wild and decadent ambiance, Spiegeltents are exquisite pop-up venues that suit an eclectic performance programme.
Literally translated as âmirror tentâ, Spiegeltents were originally built in Belgium in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The magnificent round tent is made of dark wood with intricately carved panels, stained glass windows, bevelled mirrors and an impressive draped ceiling. The boothed seating that lines the edges makes way for a grand dance floor with an in-built stage where performers such as Marlene Dietrech famously sung âFalling in Love Againâ in a Spiegeltent in Paris in the 1930âs.
Nottinghamâs traditional Goose Fair would see folk travel from far and wide to celebrate the end of harvest and pick up a Goose (or two) which were driven annually across the fens from Norfolk. Whilst as far as we know Spiegeltents were never hosted at the Goose Fair of old, entertainment was a significant feature of the event, both in the ale houses around Old Market Square and surrounding streets and in freak shows across the fair, where you could have expected to see literally anything from The smallest child in the world to The Yorkshire Giant Brothers, despite usually being an elaborate illusion from enterprising showmen.
The Salon Perdu is one of a handful of the unique and legendary tents left in the world today; it has spent its life travelling the world from New York to Sydney, and since 2015 annually to Nottingham, as a small part of the Goose Fair returns to its spiritual home of Old Market Square.
