It's nearly time for our next concert night! We are proud to be hosting the delightful duo from Cornwall, CORNCROW, on Friday  22nd June at 8.15pm at The Royal British Legion, Church Lane, Blandford, DT11 7AD.

Corncrow are Kim Guy and Steve Hunt who play their own arrangements of mostly traditional songs with style and enthusiasm. They played to packed appreciative audiences at Chippenham Folk Festival recently, and are much in demand for festivals and folk clubs. They are the resident act at Liskeard's Barley Folk venue. Come and enjoy them at our club on 22nd.

Providing opening support on this night is Terry McDonald, another excellent performer of traditional songs and a regular at our club.

Tickets are only ?6 each if you book ahead, or ?8 unbooked. It helps us hugely if you do book, either by a simple reply to this email, or by calling Kathy on 01202 732239 or texting on 07590 411515. This way we can ensure we have enough seats for everyone.


While you are booking for Corncrow, why not also book your seat for our Charity night on 13th July? The line up is now complete and will be featuring Bob & Gill Berry (Chippenham Folk Festival organisers, members of Tinkers Bag),  Derek Burgess & Kitty Vernon, Les Sullivan, Andy Stone, Terry McDonald, and Ian Sedwell.

All the ticket sales will go to Macmillan Cancer Support plus profits from the raffle.

Tickets are ?6 if you book ahead, ?8 on the door.

We operate a ?trust' system and, if you book tickets, we don't usually ask for payment in advance, just pay when you come on the night. We try to remind you closer to the night so hope you won't forget. We are a small club and can only accept cash or personal cheques.
