Don’t miss TV Smith plus Falling Apart in a free gig at The Chill Bar on Friday (April 7).

Punk legend TV Smith is returning to his Devon roots to play a free gig at The Chill Bar in Ilfracombe this Friday (April 7).

Support comes from local punksters Falling Apart and the venue owners have generously agreed to host the gig free of charge, though voluntary donations are welcome.

Tim 'TV' Smith is the legendary former front man of punk originals The Adverts and returns to his home county with an energetic set of original material and Adverts favourites.

The Adverts were one of the first punk bands to enjoy UK chart success and reached number 18 with Gary Gilmore's Eyes.

TV's partner Gaye Advert and band bassist also hails from Westward Ho! and has been hailed as the 'first female punk star'.

TV's last Devon appearance was at The Palladium Club in Bideford three years ago.

He has been touring the world playing gigs throughout his career and this is a rare opportunity for his North Devon fans to see him live.
