Subject: RE: New Singers' Session - Birstall (Yorks.)
From: MoorleyMan
Date: 01 Jul 16 - 09:10 AM

For those interested, the first session at our new venue (The Garden Gate in Hunslet) was most encouraging. A smaller turnout than expected, quite possibly due to the atrocious weather (a very rainy night indeed), but this was made up for by the friendly atmosphere and select attendance. The venue is very accommodating, the room itself is good for singing, and those present approved of the venue, so (unless we get any good news re the Black Bull reopening!) the plan is to use the new venue again for July's session (on 26th).
Hope to see you there, Dennis - as well as others who were unable to make June's session.

Fear not, Jack - our replacement venue is well away from Birstall.
Our session has only coincidental connections with the local area - the Black Bull was just a very good meeting place with a great room to sing in - it just happened to be located in Birstall.

Please let's keep this thread focused on the singers' session.

A truly shocking event.

Jo Cox lived with her family on a boat named Ederlezi after a traditional folk song by Goran Bregovic about the Romani minority of the Balkans.

Latest news:
We are monitoring the Black Bull situation closely, in case the pub suddenly reopens!!
However, on the assumption that this is unlikely, we have sought and found a replacement venue, which will be used on a trial basis for the session on 28th June.
It's THE GARDEN GATE in Hunslet, south Leeds (Whitfield Place, LS10 2QB).
The landlady has kindly granted use of the Rampton Room therein, a separate, smallish snug room with a closeable door.
Beers are reportedly good.
We will aim to start prompt at 8pm as usual, in order to keep to an 11 pm finish.
Access from motorway network is good, with bus routes also serving the A639. There's a quite large car parking area within two minutes' walk.
We'll need a good turnout in order to assess the longer-term suitability of this venue - so hoping to see you there!

Yes sorry to hear this David, not your fault as many know the pub is "old established" and been home to many folk clubs over the years ~ hope you find another home shortly

Sign of the times in UK pub Chains trying to get as much profit as possible in a dwindling market ~~~~~~

Bad news - Just Voices is now without a venue.

I arrived there yesterday evening for the monthly Drovers club night to find the Black Bull closed and boarded up, with no information on the door. Needless to say, there had been no prior warning of this.
I shall endeavour to find out what is happening and seek a replacement venue (even a temporary one) as a matter of urgency.
Watch this space...


Max - could you please rename this thread "Just Voices Singers' Session - Yorks., UK" ? Thanks!

Refreshing it certainly was last night, a splendid session despite the unfortunate absence of some erstwhile regulars, with some welcome new faces and enthusiastic, real quality singing from everyone concerned.
Thanks to you all, especially Nick & Mally and John & Vic for coming the distance, and to Guest Mudcatter BirstallSinger for finally making it to our gathering!
Till June's date (28th), then...

However, some of the regular attendees were conspicuous by their absence, sadly missed, and it was strange not receiving their "sick notes". Hoping all are fit and well.

Here's some good-ish news:

I've had a phone conversation with the new manager at our venue (the Black Bull). He tells me that his tenure is "for the foreseeable future", and that our room booking dates will be honoured.

So it's a case of "as we were", then, with the 2016 calendar still reading as follows:

Every last-Tuesday-of-the-month – i.e. 26th April; 31st May;       28th June; 26th July; 30th August; 27th September; 25th October; 29th November…   

… until December, when we plan to meet on the penultimate Tuesday (20th) instead.

We will, naturally, be continuing to put out feelers for a potential "Plan B" should the situation change again suddenly!

Thanks for bearing with us, and hoping to see you soon.

Cheers!

Stop Press --- Latest news is that the Black Bull will have a brief "stay of execution" for six weeks (under "caretaker management"), so our booking will be honoured and all being well we should still be able to use the venue for our 26th April session. Spread the word...!

Only this afternoon I received the sad news that the owners of the Black Bull have decided to close the pub with effect from Easter, all of a sudden and with no warning to the landlady or her staff.

This coming Tuesday's session WILL go ahead, but we will be looking for another suitable venue with some urgency. Any practical suggestions will be welcomed.

Great to see the return of Nick Dow and Mally, Malcolm, Sally and Barbara, and we enjoyed a welcome first-time visit from Vic Shepherd and John Bowden, also fine contributions from our stalwarts including Joe and Maureen.
