Organising a decent, regular evening of live music – many people try, but few succeed. How, then, will Watford impresario Adam Hills get on with his new night The Vale, which opens at Wealdstone FC tomorrow?

With an opening night line-up featuring Sound Advice favourites the Fullertons and Lost Without Cause, I’m willing to wager it’ll go pretty well. Very well, in fact. “I was no good at playing the guitar, so thought I’d try my hand at promoting,” says the ambitious 24-year-old. “I absolutely love live music, but the problem around here is that there’s not many designated nights for younger audiences.

“The Horns does a great job, but a lot of its stuff is for older audiences and you can’t get in without ID. “This means younger people have got to go into London all the time.” While a trip to the London mightn’t seem too much of a bother, it is more than likely that, once there, the said audiences won’t end up watching many of the fine and talented acts we’re so lucky to have right on our own doorstep. So then, what can we expect from a regular run of nights at The Vale (the name of Wealdstone’s FC ground)?

Adam explains: “I want to start a regular night that’s easy to get to. We’ve found a great venue at the football club and have got some great bands signed up. “The club holds about 350 people but, for the moment, I’ll be happy with around 150. “We’ve got another night booked in already for Saturday, April 4 so we’re confident of success. “If the first two go well, then we hope to run a night every couple of weeks. The venue sounds great. It’s got a fully licensed bar and should have a great atmosphere. “We’ve done everything we can do, so now we’re just crossing our fingers.” Also on the bill are Ruislip act Kerfew – I have not seen them live, but I hear you won’t be disappointed.

Doors 7pm. Tickets £5 on the night. Wealdstone Football Club, Grosvenor Vale
