Generally this alternates between open singers' /feature or guest nights.
On Singers nights we offer a warm welcome whether or not you want to perform. Performers get to do a short spot(1 or 2 songs / tunes /poems Give your name to the MC on arrival so that he/she can organise a running order Singers nights are usually busy so please be ready when its your turn with your instrument tuned up. If you arrive after we've started the MC will try and fit you in the 2nd half but this cant be guaranteed.
Feature Nights are run on similar lines to singers, but the named act gets 2 x 20min spots leaving time for about 8 floor spots.
Guest Nights - still same club atmosphere but full concert performance from the billed act + named support act(s)
There is a break halfway through the evening for a sandwich (included in admission fee) and a raffle.
Entry is just £1 apart from Guest nights which are usually £3-£5.
Usually just turn up and pay on the door but occasionally, ticket/ tkt reservations are needed. These are clearly marked in the programme and they go on sale approx 6 weeks before the gig.
