It was 4am. I then changed the name of a WhatsApp I was a part of to COLD LASAGNE HATE MYSELF 1999 because I had been thinking a lot about how 1999 was the best year of my life and also about how much I hate myself sometimes. The next day I was asked to name my new show. Come along.

Fifty years on and Steeleye Span are set to mark this incredible milestone with new album EST'D 1969 and a tour that will celebrate a band that are as creative and vital now as ever.
