Calling all musicians, poets, singers, story-tellers…

Quite a few people think that there should be a space in Drimpton where performers, expert or beginner, can meet informally to try out or share their music, poems and stories.
And now there is…
Netherhay Chapel 7pm on 17th February! - a lovely space with great acoustics.

Perhaps there will be enough interest for this to grow into a regular event? This is an opportunity to find out. So dig out your old banjo, dust off that scrawled poetry or stretch those vocal chords and come along.

There will be no audience, although if friends and family want to come along for a bit of support they will be welcome. Just £3 pp to cover chapel overheads, tea coffee and cake. (Alcohol available later, just up the road at the Royal Oak!)

If you think you might be interested, - or if you are interested but not around on the 17th Feb - please get in touch with Nick or Francesca Hurrell 01308 867617 or 07771554601
