Sing-a-rounds are were the chairs a placed in circle around the room
and people can perform their songs from where they're seated.

Other Tuesday’s

Big Spots usually take place during the second half of the evening usually 45 minutes
or up to an hour allowing time for floor singers during the first half of the night.
Occasionally the guests can split their performance into two halves, 20 minutes in an first half
and around half an hour during the second half of the evening with the interval between.
Mini Spots are 20 minute to half an hour slots.

Mini concerts are similar to Big spots which are for the professional guests.
which may be allocated a little more time than the normal Big spot.

Singers, Musicians & Poets most welcome,
or if you don't sing or play, just come along and listen.
We're a friendly group and will be made most welcome.

We usually close during the Christmas and new year period if the dates land close to the
holiday, plus a few weeks during August. See above for these closures.
