Exploding Buddhas

Purple Creative Stage Sat 7:45pm

Having formed in 1993 to play a one-off gig, the Buddhas had already played together for 5 years (including two tours of the Czech Republic) when they got a call to play a gig in Richmond. Of course, that gig turned out to be the headline slot of the first Richmond Live.

Since that day in September 1998, the band have been privileged to be asked to play just about every slot across all of the stages. This year, they’ll make their 15th appearance as Richmond Live celebrates it’s 20th birthday and the band marks 25 years together. Tom, Mick, Dickie, Mark and Julie travel from Birmingham, Manchester, Northumberland and Bedale and have all continuously played in the band since that first gig in Bedale Hall.
