Bell & Jorrocks session dates and lineup for 2011/12

Frittenden Sessions at the Bell & Jorrocks

These take place on the last Sunday of  the month from September to April, from 8pm. (The only exception is usually at Christmas time, when it may have to be on a different night.)

The session itself is an entertaining old fashioned and traditional pub evening with songs and tunes, and plenty of variety and good humour. If you’ve got a song, a tune, a stepdance or story, enjoy joining in with a chorus or just like listening in the bar, please come along. We go on until it’s time to close with Nellie Dean the old way – just as people used to before the telly and the computer.

29th December: Peter Collins with the wonderful Udimore Bell Ringers * (Note this isn’t a Sunday)
29th January: Chris Walshaw
26th February: Dan Quinn

Horsmonden barn dance and Frittenden Old Fashioned Night Out 2012

The Horsmonden Traditional Music Class is proud to present an evening of barn dancing and party games at Horsmonden Village Hall on the night of the 25th November, starting at 8pm! Details are to come, but the caller will be local boy Chris Rose, and we are planning a few surprise entertainments! One thing we can say is that there’s no bar but you are welcome to bring your own! Download our magnificent poster here.

We’re also planning the 2012 Frittenden Old Fashioned Night Out and it’s associated sessions, though we don’t yet have too many details. It’s to be on Saturday 31st March 2012. More information will appear at http://frittendenfestival.com as it becomes available.

22nd June – come to the Horsmonden trad music class’s end of term session

All are welcome at the Horsmonden trad music class’s end of term session from 8pm on Wednesday at the Gun & Spitroast, Horsmonden, Kent!

We’ll be playing many of the tunes we’ve learnt in the class during the year, but there will likely also be stepdancing and few songs – we’re hoping to be joined by Rosie Davis, singer John Morgan and Morris dancing pals Weald of Kent after their regular Wednesday evening dance out.

It should be a fun, informal opportunity to find out what the classes are all about!
