Well, that’s it for another year, Summer that is.….many
festivals visited and a few pints quaffed and before ye know it it’s Woodman
opening time again, and once again we have an exciting programme for you this
September to kick-start the year off, albeit a slightly later start than usual,
so fewer guests to tell you about, but here goes:
Friday 15th September will be the first one of our legendary Singers’ Nights. Don’t be disappointed, these singers nights are normally over-subscribed so do please contact Debby or Derry on 01384 560462 to ensure you get a floor spot, we have a maximum of 14 slots. Alternatively just come and enjoy the talent on display. A great night is guaranteed! Also it will be membership renewal night: only a fiver and you save a pound on every other night at the club. You know it makes sense!
Then on the 22nd we are pleased to welcome back Stanley Accrington. Stanley emerged from the dark days of the ‘70’s and has been terrorizing audiences ever since! He performs some silly, some VERY silly and just occasionally some serious stuff, in the forms of poems, songs or pastiches, all over the UK and beyond. Variously described as ‘a leg-end in his own trousers’ – ‘often with much flares’ and other descriptions too rude to mention! A visit to his website is a must, if only to look at the anagram section!! Last with us in November ’14 so ripe for a Woodman welcome back!!
And finally Friday the 29th will be a very special night as we welcome back our very good mate and club regular Anthony John Clarke. Well, what can you say about AJC? Almost a club resident, he’s only missed a couple of years since the beginning of the century!! He loves coming to the club, we love having him to entertain us so it’s perfect symmetry. Seriously, he really is an excellent singer/songwriter, something of a raconteur and an all round nice fella. You’ve all seen him several times before but he never fails to deliver a superb nights entertainment so sit back and enjoy.
A cracking start I’m sure you’ll agree so we are looking forward to seeing all the old, (in the nicest possible way), faces back at the club as well as all the lucky folks who’ve yet to find us! The rest of the year is mapped out already – do check the website – and we have a fantastic array of artistes lined up as well as all our talented resident performers so ‘come on down’…..you know you want to!
