Martyn Joseph is a performer like no other: Shades of Springsteen, John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews there may be - but he stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives delivering his "songs of lyrical intelligence" according to BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris.

We have today (9th January) received the news that the Bristol Ticket Shop, which is the ticket agency looking after Martyn’s show in Bristol next weekend, has ceased trading and the business is being put into the hands of a third party to oversee the sales of assets, as they currently have no liquid funds to pay creditors. This means that the funds from the sales of just over 100 tickets has almost certainly been lost, and puts Martyn and the promoter in a very difficult position.

However, Martyn has confirmed that the show will definitely go ahead and he will honour all ticket holders, despite the loss of all their ticket money.

As we’re sure you can imagine, the costs of putting on a show in a theatre such as 1532 Performing Arts are high. There are costs for venue hire, technicians, staff, travel, promoter, advertising, fuel, accommodation and food..and that’s before Martyn earns a  penny…so we’re asking for your help!

We still have a good number of seats available for the show….and we’d really like to sell the venue out if we can…as we are selling the remaining tickets ourselves to try and recoup some of the costs.

We are asking that everyone who already has a ticket to encourage extra friends and family to come along…and if everyone can help by sharing the show details amongst folk they know, we can  spread the word far and wide.

Tickets are available online by using the link 

and there is an updated Facebook event you can help by sharing to all your contacts and groups at

If we can sell every seat in the house, we can go a huge way for making up for the massive loss of those first 100 tickets!

We also know that Martyn’s audience have been amazing in the past when things like this have happened…so if you would like to help by making a small donation towards the lost funds…which we can assure you will only be used  to cover lost costs, you can donate by clicking on the link below .  Please note, any donations over the basic costs will be donated to the Let Yourself Trust)


Thank you to everyone in anticipation of your help..and let’s together make this one of the best shows of the tour!
