FOLK NIGHT – WEDNESDAY 2nd MAY
Last month we enjoyed a record attendance (well over 50 people including 17 musicians!). Every player had the chance to play two or three numbers and Home Brew finished the evening with a couple of rousing tunes. Alan and Linda Heath did sterling work on the bar and even brought two of their grandchildren who kept people entertained with card tricks and helped out with the raffle and collecting glasses.
Now we look forward to welcoming you all to the Folk Night for May. Doors open at Moggerhanger Village Hall as usual at 7 pm and music will start 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.
Brian has spent the last month on another long-distance trip—this time to South America but we hope he will be recovered enough to come to take more pictures and play for us at the May session.
Pictures from recent Folk Nights can be found on the Events pages of this website.

Last month Lydia Wright of Home Farm spoke about Aquaponics.
