In our 36th year and stronger than ever

Hi Folks,

It has often been said that time marches on and it was with horror that I realised just how close it was to Christmas. Over the next couple of weeks (1st and 8th December) we are holding Singers Nights to give you all an opportunity to fine tune your tonsils for the magnificence that is

The Woodman Christmas Party & Pantomime which takes place on Friday 15th December. (See photos from last years pantomime here)

Our guests this year are, once again, the incredibly talented trio “FAIRFIELD” This band is, without doubt, a legend in their own dining room.

Stalwarts of the local folk scene they have a huge following and, thus far, they have managed to avoid being caught.

The format for the evening is that there will be contributions from the club’s resident artists, a couple of extended spots from our guests, a sumptuous buffet and, of course, the pantomime.

So! Why is the pantomime such good fun? Is it slick? Is it glossy? Is it well rehearsed? The answer to all these questions is a resounding NO! Every expense has been spared to ensure that the fine tradition of The Woodman pantomime is maintained. The script (such as it is) is handed out a week before the event and the thespians are under threat of painful punishment if they make any attempt to learn their lines. Is it chaos? Is it mayhem? Is it side splittingly funny? The answer to all these questions is a resounding YES!

So! What’s the pantomime this year?

Hard luck, I’m not giving the game away!


Just E Mail me with the answer to the following question:-

In which pantomime does the character “Buttons” appear?

Let me have you entries no later than Thursday 7th December. The winner will be drawn and notified by E Mail on Friday 8th December.

Good luck! Look forward to seeing you soon,


P.S. If you want to get into the party spirit early,Nothing To Prove are the guests at The Olde White Rose,in Bilston for their Christmas Bash on Thursday 14th December.
