Singers Night ( Cambridge & Walker cancelled)
Due to the unusual situation the club will be holding a Singers Night for those who feel fit and healthy . This will no doubt be the last club night before a period of lockdown. It will give everyone the chance to sing a few songs and hear what the clubs' plans are going forward as we journey into uncharted waters. Hopefully this will give some vision of what the future looks like for the folk club as the country battles with the coronavirus pandemic which is impacting on everyone and everything. So if you feel fit and healthy come along to entertain or just listen to the songs and music. There is plenty of space in the hall so if you want to stand or sit 2 meters apart that will not be a problem. These are indeed strange times but I am sure a song or two can only lift peoples spirits. If you are unable to attend please feel free to contact me for an update going forward.
