3rd December Update - Tremendous News!!!
I am extremely excited to announce that we have
received the consent from the Licensing officer to go ahead with the brilliant
Shufflepack on 15th December.
Please note that as this is a concert there is no requirement under the regulations to have a meal. You can just have a drink and enjoy the music.
It is strictly ticket only, and seating at the venue has been adjusted accordingly. You must not mix with other household groups.
All the existing regulations have to be observed. Masks on except when seated, table service only, sanitised hands, one-way system etc
This will be our final gig in 2020. Let's make it memorable
Finally, I'd like to thank everyone for their support in what has been an extremely strange year. I include all the superb musicians who have given us such wonderful music and memories.
Jonathan Townsend for all his hard work on the night and all the stuff he does in the background

Updated House rules (23rd Sept)
1. We will be acting within the 2m social distancing guidelines and the concert room will be set out accordingly. We ask folk to respect the guidelines and have patience; after all we are going to get a live music.
2. All drinks will be obtained through a table service. No one will be permitted to purchase from the bar. Contactless payment preferred.
3. The venue is licenced for 150 folk in total. To ensure everyone’s safety, numbers are limited to a maximum of 40.4. No table hopping. Please do not move the furniture.
5. Use hand sanitising stations regularly.
6. Dancing will not be permitted
9. You will need to wear face mask unless you are seated.
10.It would be wise to contact us via Messenger, email or text
to book a place. (If you are one of the regulars and have our numbers, phone or
text either Jonathan or myself). .
We have to face the fact that circumstances
could change and we might not be able to go ahead. This would be so
disappointing but would be necessary to ensure the safety of all involved.
Please bring the correct money, £10 per ticket, with you. For those who wish to pay by card we can offer that option.
Finally, thank you for your patience. I’m indebted to the Committee and the Staff at The BCC Bar & Restaurant for their encouragement and hard work to enable us to get up and running again. I honestly didn’t think we would have any live music until October at the earliest.
