We are sorry to have to say that tonight with Helen has been cancelled as Gavin has been hospitalised for a few days with his gall bladder problem and is already feeling better. We expect that the first Sunday tunes session and the first Tuesday workshop will go ahead as normal.

- Kent’s own Helen North is our visiting friend for the regular mixed songs and tunes session at at the Castle Inn, Brenchley on the 25th March from 8pm. She has a really good voice and a distinctive repertoire including her own excellent songs, so it will be a treat to have her along… Folks are welcome to come and just listen, of course, but if you’ve got a song, a tune, a poem or anything else you might call trad, old-fashioned or entertaining please bring them along.
