Come along and join in with our casual folk session.  It's a bit open mic, it's a bit of a jam and it's a bit of a sing along....   Anyway, if you wanna come down, please just come down and have a play, sing, or just sit and watch/listen.  It's a chilled out, informal music session for all the family

This is our first Tuesday of the month meeting.  We've got some announments regarding the Link4Life bid, and I think Helen has sent you all details about that.  So, we should all be quite clear about what we are discussing.

We've had a fantastic 2014, and I'm pretty damn sure it's just gonna keep getting better and better in 2015.  We've already got quite a few bookings and events sorted.

We're starting at 6:30PM prompt and finishing at 7:00PM......

It's a sing-a-long, an open mic', a session.........  It's whatever it turns out to be, depending on who's there really.....  I should imagine the forst three comments are true through.  So I guess it's an organic, symbiotic gathering of folky folk

As part of our commitment to becoming a voluntary arts organisation, we have decided it prudent to have a brief monthly meeting.  We will possibly have a slightly longer meeting quarterly, and take stock at an annual general meeting.  The idea of the monthly meeting is to check we're steering the desired course, if there are any issues, and that any suggestions can be minuted and genuinely considered.

We're having a procession (carol singer style) around LIttleborough and Smithybridge to collect Foodbank donations from residential properties on Friday 26th December, 11-5.  We'll perform in certain areas, maybe knock on doors and encourage donations of none perishable foodstuffs for the Rochdale Foodbank.

Another sing a long for the Lancashire Night.  Needs to be done with confidence and gusto, this or it's just a boring wash.
