GUEST,Nicholas Waller Topic Folk Club, Bradford (45) RE: Topic Folk Club, Bradford 10 Mar 06


Hallo, I'm pretty new here, so went I hunting to see what Topic stuff I could find as I do the Topic's website. Apologies for resuscitating an older thread but here's a couple of points:

1) MC for Keith Kendrick the evening Lizzie Borden was complaining about (8 April 2004)... I don't know who it was but it wasn't my brother John, to whose defence several people kindly leapt just in case, as he was that day (as indeed he is right at this moment) in China, hassling schoolkids into becoming students at Bradford University. In fact, on Friday 9th April he did a floorspot in a bar in Chongqing (where he was obliged to do the likes of Wild Rover and Streets of London... just dug up his email about it).

2) Venue. The Topic is no longer at the Melborn - as the Melborn shut down as a pub in mid-January - and has moved to The Cock & Bottle in Barkerend Road. I've mentioned this in passing on another thread or two. But anyway, the audiences generally seem to be bigger now and there's a wider range of real ales too, and this month the first beer brewed on the premises since 1927 should come to the pumps, assuming everything goes to plan. (So now it can be a drinking club _and_ a folk club! A floor wax _and_ a dessert topping!)

Details on club, pub, map, faq, acts, dates and other stuff
