Live music

Emily Barker ~ September 2016

I have cut back on hosting live music, as it’s very hard as a lone host and promoter to make it work.  But we’ve had such amazing gigs that there will still be a few things happening.  Mostly I say no at the moment to enquiries, but it’s proved impossible to stop hosting music all together!  Live music is the best.

It helps enormously if people book in advance, and if you spread the word – I can always provide a poster for a workplace or kitchen noticeboard, and sharing on social media is quick, easy and a huge help.  Ticket money goes to paying the musicians, and we hope to take a little for ourselves, but only when there is enough left over.  We are not licensed, but you are welcome to bring your own alcohol – we have glasses – and we have tea (including herbal and decaffeinated) and coffee available.  I’m working on better provision of refreshments, but space, facilities and my own physical limitations are obstacles I haven’t yet worked out how to overcome!

Live music in small venues is worth preserving, so do support us if you can.  We host professional musicians, usually on national tours, sometimes one-off gigs, always top quality.  Tickets on sale at the bookshop and online (click on the links for online tickets).  Seating capacity is 35.
