Many folk will be spending part of the summer on the canal.
Can we suggest dance clubs, music sessions, singarounds that are within walking distance of a mooring?

Scottish dancing every week in Linlithgow:

and a session on the third Sunday of the month:

You need to get to the Union Canal first, of course...

Anything on the Crinan Canal?

Leadfingers,

I guess you'll be well away from Middlewich by May 9th when the Boar's Head (a minute or so walk from the town wharf) presents Middlewich Open Mike. If not, you'll be very welcome, as will everyone else of course.

There's also Live & Local's session night at the same pub on the second Saturday in the month, so that means May's session will be on the 12th by my reckoning. Looks like we missed you again.

However, both these events occur every month of the year on the days stated so we'd love it if everyone came along.

Neither of these events, by the way, have any connection with Middlewich Folk & Boat Festival and its organisers.

The Live & Local weekend, held at the BH over the weekend of March 10th - 12th raised £3000 for the new MacMillan Cancer Care Unit at Leighton Hospital, so thanks to everyone who came along and either took part, listened or helped with fundraising.

An official press release will be issued soon.

Thanks folks,

Dave Roberts
on behalf of
LIVE & LOCAL EVENTS

The Abbey Inn, Newlay, Leeds, which is five miles north of the great metropolis, along the Leeds/Liverpool canal, hosts a singaround every Tuesday, from about 8:30pm.

It's good fun and very friendly. Top quality local ales too!
