Theme Night:  Weather or not ...........

As you all know, we have occasional nights when Lyn takes over the role of MC.  The evening usually has a theme; we’ve celebrated Llamas Night, the anniversary of the American Constitution, water, countries of the world, modes of transport, trades, names, events & achievement, the ultimate David Attenborough experience, the numbers game, living spaces, the young ones, love, unrequited love & betrayal and now:  WEATHER OR NOT ……….  Lots to choose from: wind, rain, sunshine, snow, ice, fog, storms, clouds, tempests, hurricanes, heat waves etc.  All contributions are welcome, but any ditties with a reference to climate will be greatly appreciated.

So – we hope to hear songs, music or poems (in an obvious or roundabout way) that include something to do with the above. Maybe ‘A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall’, ‘Here Comes Summer’, ‘Four Strong Winds’ – the list is endless.

As usual, we’ll continue the theme with interval refreshments.  Lyn says “I’m currently toying with Summer Pudding, Snow on the Mountain, Sundried Tomato, Chicken & Spring Onion Pasties – further suggestions welcome.

Generally we hold a Singaround Every Week from 8 - 11pm with an occasional guest event or a feature spot 

On Special Guest Evenings a door charge of £4 is made For other evenings an occasional donation of approx. £1.00 (+)
