FOLK NIGHT – 1st WEDNESDAY each month. Next date 1st August.
Each month we enjoy an excellent attendance (usually 50 or more people including 10 plus musicians!). Every player has the chance to play two or three numbers and Home Brew often finishes the evening with a couple of rousing tunes.
Now we look forward to welcoming you all to the next Folk Night. Doors open at Moggerhanger Village Hall as usual at 7 pm and music starts about 8 pm. You have the chance to come early, get yourself a drink and chat to friends. So please come along—all are welcome to sing, play, listen—or all three. Entrance is free and there will be a raffle.
Pictures from recent Folk Nights can be found on the Events pages of the village hall website.
