I have set up a session in the Romping Donkey for alternate Mondays, starting at around 8.15pm.  The landlady has agreed to lay on a few sandwiches for the musicians.  If it is a success, I plan on running is every other week.

I hope you can make it.  Can you pass the work around your musician circle please.  If I can get a good number to the first session, then the chances of a reasonable turnout at subsequent events will be that much greater.
