OUR popular live band nights do sell out (as the Ultimate Eighties night April 21 did) so we suggest you buy tickets in advance soon, rather than risk being turned away trying to pay on the door on the night. The next 80's event in August has also sold out already. The next tribute night with tickets available is 'Michael' on 22 September, £12.

Other things are going on too, such as Fairs, or Fayres, on different days in different weeks, and there is usually a specialist music event each week or fortnight, such as Disco Inferno which starts each month off and includes some Tamla Motown, or there are other special interests or activity classes. Additionally there are a couple of 'singles' club evenings available: U-nite being one of them. 

Occasionally, there are Charity Events like our own Curry Nights, that you might want to support, in aid of local causes.

On 27th June we celebrated the retirement of our Chairman Mr Jim Bishop after 34 years working at BAWA Healthcare and Leisure.
