Nicky Chance-Thompson DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Charitable Trust, said: “This is another truly incredible coup for The Piece Hall. boygenius are rightly regarded as the world’s most exciting indie supergroup and their debut album is one of the most eagerly-awaited releases of the year.

“We can’t wait to welcome Julien, Phoebe and Lucy – three incredible and super-talented female artists – here to our wonderful venue, which will be the perfect backdrop for what will undoubtedly be one of the must-see shows of the year.”
