Newsletter - December 2017

25 Nov 2017

Well that’s it then, 2017 is finally spluttering to a close and what a fantastic year it’s been! We’ve had loads of new guests that will undoubtedly return, as well as lots of our old favourites that enjoy coming to the club year on year. But sadly we now have only three club nights left before……….….the ‘C’ word!! So without further ado….
Friday 1st December gives us a very welcome return of The Jigantics. We had them in 2015, we had them in 2016 and they’ve just about crept in to 2017, so this will be the third visit to the club from this lively five piece folk/rock band who are guaranteed to get your toes tapping and shakers shakin’! They went down so well on previous visits that a return booking was on the cards immediately. The line-up is basically guitar, fiddle, bass, mandolin and drums but with the odd variation thrown in just to make it more interesting. Combined with powerful vocals this night will be sure to appeal to the Woodman crowd……...just don’t expect to be quietly serenaded off to sleep!!
The 8th will be the final Singers’ Night of the year so as usual get there early to book your spot as Singers' Nights are very popular and slots are limited However, to be sure, it would be best to book a spot in advance by contacting Debby & Derry either by phone or email - contact details are on the home page.
Please note that if you have pre-booked a spot you need to be at the club before 8:30 to confirm, or the slot may be re-allocated
And finally the 15th brings us the night you’ve all been drea…...waiting for…’s the highlight of the week, yes it’s the Woodman Christmas Panto Extravaganza!!
“Oh no it isn’t”……’re quite correct, it isn’t!! However with limited resources and a very shallow pool - nay puddle - of talent to call upon, we do our best. No doubt our friends and compatriots from Bromsgrove Folk Club will be along to join in the…...ahem…, and raise the level of the entertainment to something approaching amateur…....if we’re lucky! On a brighter note, the food’ll be great!!
And that about wraps up another fantastic year for the best folk club in the Midlands so have a fantastic break with friends and family and we’ll  be here to welcome you all back on  Friday 5th of January.
Cheers folks, ‘Enjoy yourselves’
