End Of Summer Open Mic – We’ve got our own PA system (finally), so we thought we’d see the summer off by giving local musicians and artists a platform to show off their skills. We’re open to all kinds of acts, but bear in mind that children may be in the audience. If you’re keen to show us what you’ve got then come down and ease people’s hallowe’en hangovers from 4pm and we’ll get you a slot to play. Finishing time will depend on how much interest we have, but we’re happy to keep it going until closing time.
