Our opening event was, I feel confident in saying, a success. Over 50 people came, and I apologise to those who had nowhere to sit! (We will sort out some more seating.) Storyteller Stephe Harrop enthralled us with her tales within tales, and a trio of Spicy Jazz entertained us with their fabulous playing and good humour. I have never had a song dedicated to me before, let alone had the lyrics changed in my honour!
Our next event is on Friday 16th August, when we will be hosting folk duo Haddo (the link takes you to their website, where you can hear some of their tunes and find out a bit more about them). They are husband and wife Will and Nicky Pound – Will plays melodeon, Nicky plays viola. Will is also one of the world’s finest harmonica players (and no, I’m not exaggerating – look him up on youtube!), and has promised us a tune or two on his harmonica.
Will also has local connections – he hails from Leamington Spa, and his mother dances with Chinewrde Morris, Kenilworth’s own women’s Morris team.
So do consider coming along to what promises to be a lovely evening. Tickets are £5, and you can bring your own refreshments (including alcohol) – we can provide glasses, corkscrews, bottle openers, paper cups. We will have tea and coffee for sale at a reasonable price, though if the weather stays like this they may not be wanted! We may even have homemade cake.
It starts at 8pm, doors open at 7.30, and if you would like tickets, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org or 01926 856843) or buy them in the shop.

I am in the process of organising some author events, and once we get someone to wire in speakers, etc, we will start showing films regularly.
