Long Meg and Her Daughters is a Bronze Age stone circle near Penrith in Cumbria, North West England. It was constructed as a part of a megalithic tradition that lasted from 3,300 to 900 BCE, during the Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age. The stone circle is the sixth-biggest example known from this part of north-western Europe. It primarily consists of 59 stones (of which 27 remain upright) set in an oval shape measuring 340ft (100 m) on its long axis. There may originally have been as many as 70 stones. Long Meg herself is a 12ft (3.6 m) high monolith of red sandstone 80ft (25 m) to the southwest of the circle made by her Daughters.

It is with a heavy heart that we heard the sad news of Northern Oak's imminent split. Since the very beginning of our career within the scene Northern Oak have been there with us and we've shared some truly memorable shows with them over the last 6/7 years and have remained close friends throughout.
They have put out some incredible music over the years and have always been and will always be a stand out band from the UK and their music will live on for eternity.
We are honoured to share the stage with them one more time on the farewell shows in Nottingham, London and Sheffield and we invite you all to join us in celebrating a truly unique and amazing band.
