Spring 2018 message

We are so pleased to be hosting one of just ten nights in the UK celebrating the life and music of Dave Swarbrick. He loved playing at Nailsea which is why we were approached and we have very fond memories of his many appearances at the Oak and Ring of Bells. Certainly will be a special occasion with a stella line up. We are also very pleased with our first two acoustic Thursday events at the Ring of Bells and will be hosting more this Spring. An in addition to what is a varied programme we have been delighted with the success of the Singers nights at the Grove. They have a good regular following of people who like to play and others who are happy to listen. So along with the Trust music events at the banr there is plenty to choose from!

Look forward to seeing you all  

David and the team

Note our new on line ticketting arrangement:     Please bring proof of purchase (on device/ printed page).Thanks!

Best wishes David
