Whilst we do not run a 'strictly ticket only' club, we are clearly obliged to limit the number of persons admitted to the room. For this reason, we reserve the right to refuse admission to those who arrive after all tickets for a particular guest have been sold.

We have an Advance Booking Discount system - Guest Nights have two prices - pre-booked ticket prices and pay-on-the-door prices.

Gaynor was unwell, so Paul did a solo gig!

Paul is quite a prolific songwriter, with quite a few easily singable choruses... keep it simple like beans on toast!

Singers Night CANCELLED

Unfortunately we had to cancel, due to a misunderstanding with the General Manager at the Saracen's Head. As part of the road outside the pub was closed, he decided to close at 9.00pm, but didn't let us know until Thursday morning! This gave us no time to arrange an alternative venue...
