Last Monday's gig with Marian Bradfield proved a resounding success.  Thank you for all your positive comments and your contribution to the atmosphere of the evening.
Many of you appreciated the self pennned songs introduced by a soft Irish lilt giving you an insight into her reasons for writing about moments in her life. We're glad to announce that we can look forward to seeing Marion again in 2014. 
This Monday (10th) is a singers night - it would be great if you could support Bill & Allan who are stepping in for Ged who is away on a course (work does get in the way of Life!)
The next Special night to book in your diary is the John Collinge Shanty Night on 24th June. Come and bring your sea related songs  - or perhaps Pirate poems?
The next Guest will be Geoff Higginbottom - another great night with the man with the big voice and personality.  Not to be missed.
The Shanty Night and Geoff's gig will NOT be ticket only events, but Anthony John Clarke's gig on 7th October will be: tickets for AJC's performance will be available from the beginning of August.

We also have another new guest confirmed: John Kelly will be playing the Club on 5th August.

Hope to see you at one or all of these - in the meantime, enjoy the summer weather!
