Who'd have thunk it?! A blog post/newsletter update this year that is actually letting you know what is going on in time for you to do something about it!!! I know, it's a miracle, and one you had all better make the most of, because the chances of me getting my crap together two weeks on the bounce are slim to none!
Last week was an odd'en. Quiet, but then it was 2 weeks after new year & Decembers early pay day was seeming a lifetime ago for many. Add to that some torrential rain and there was really not a lot to entice the masses to the bar. We had expected as much and had skimped on the events in order to save on the budget. It's a tricky balance, after all if we put nothing on, then no one wants to come out, but even the best of events would be a hard sell 2 Wednesdays into a new year! But we opened all week, had quite a few familiar faces pop in to keep us sane, then Friday we had our 90s Night, an alt Indie Disco and we were pretty surprised at the amount of people who came down to enjoy it. Saturday daytime was reasonably busy too, and Saturday night The Polaroidz played a blinding gig full of alt 80s classics, to a colossal crowd, all throwing shapes like we had unleashed a swarm of invisible bees! It was fantastic. And again, gives me hope that as we return this week to a full schedule of events, we aren't completely bonkers! That people are perhaps going a little stir crazy and could do with something fun to take their minds off the grizzly grey of January!
As we have SO many fantastic events coming up to tell you all about and as I have taken the gamble to write this at 3am after a couple of glasses of Prosecco (and by glass, I mean pint tankard), I will keep the waffling shorter than normal and crack on with the important bits!
WEDNESDAY 7:30: THE ECO SOCIAL
Informal meet up group for likeminded people who care about our planet. All are welcome, just drop in, no need to book.
