In our 37th year and stronger than ever

Hi Folks

What a great night Clive Carroll gave us on Friday. I'm sure he gets better each time I see him and what a great delight it was to hear him burst into song. He should do so more often.

So what have we got lined up for you over the next few weeks?

This coming Friday (16th March) we welcome back the quintessential Englishman JOHNNY COPPIN. It has been a few years since Johnny was last at the club and it is a visit a lot of people have been looking forward to with great anticipation. so it is congratulations to Graham Follos.who will see the show for free having won the recent competition. With his songs and stories of Gloucestershire Johnny never fails to delight.

The following week (23rd March) we have a visit from MIKE SILVER. After many years of hard work Mike became an overnight success when Terry Wogan on Radio 2 played his song “A Matter Of Pride” extensively. Mike is probably one of the most popular performers on the folk scene and his visits to The Woodman invariably become one of the highlights of the year. With his easy, laid back style, golden voice and superb songs it is certainly a night you will not want to miss. 

As we approach Easter we have a SINGERS NIGHT on the 30th March, so dust off your guitars and your vocal chords and give us a song or two. If you don’t want to play just come along and listen to a wide variety of music. Yes! We also welcome banjos. The following week you all get a week off for good behaviour before we return on the 13th April for another SINGERS NIGHT. You’ve had a week off to practise so you have no excuse.

The following week (20th April) we say hello to THE QUEENSBURY RULES.

Making the trip down the M6 from their Stoke On Trent homeland THE QUEENSBURY RULES arrive at The Woodman with an ever-growing reputation.

Cultivating the rich seams of local history and tradition, they exhibit storytelling ability and social awareness that belie their years. They have achieved what they have by working hard in the traditional way by playing floor spots and supports slots around the country. Their song “The Sagger Makers Bottom Knocker” has become one of the most frequently played songs on various radio stations throughout the country. 


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

What sport is governed by The Queensbury Rules?

Let me have you entries no later than Thursday 12th April. The winner will be drawn and notified by

E Mail on Friday13th April..

Good luck! I look forward to seeing you soon,
