On Friday 18 December the last meeting took place at the White Horse Inn, Trowse, in the upstairs function room. Many thanks are due to landlady Pam and to Andy and the bar staff for all their support for the club in the last four and a half years.
On Thursday 31 December from 8.30 pm there will be a New Year’s Eve Ceilidh and Singaround with members of Shufflewing plus others (all welcome) and caller Faith Masendu at our new venue, the Christ Church Centre, on Magdalen Road (NR3 4LA). The Centre’s large car park is opposite the junction with Waterloo Road, and near the Whalebone. Please bring your own drinks and perhaps some food to share. (The Whalebone will have queues and a one-out one-in policy on this night.) Tickets £5 (£3 members).
On Friday 8 January there will be the first acoustic club night in the upstairs room at the Christ Church Centre. Everyone is very welcome to join us there. Bring your own refreshments. Tea and coffee available.
Jez was great, as always, and we particularly enjoyed the variety of stringed instruments and the harmonica accompaniment in the absence of the Bad Pennies.
What delights will this Friday bring? At the last singaround we had John Barleycorn and Old Brown’s Daughter rubbing shoulders with Eddie Cantor and Shane McGowan – not to mention some rather accomplished concertina harmonies! Everyone is welcome, as usual, whether to play, sing or listen. (Monologues also appreciated!)
Reservations for Tim Laycock on 21 November are coming in, so let us know via the contact form on ‘About the club’ page, if you would like to join the list.
We hope you find our new site friendly and useful. It is still being developed, so bear with us if there are any glitches! Next Friday’s event (17 October) will be a singaround and everyone is very welcome, whether you enjoy singing, playing tunes or just love listening to live acoustic music. There was also a choice of five real ales last Friday!
