Dear Network Folk

You may have noticed it's been rather quiet from SEFAN Central ... since middle of last week we've be unable to get any bulletins through! (again!)

Won't bore you with the extremely complicated problems with our ISP but if you're one of those members wondering
where your gig announcement went ..... it either got lost in hyperspace or is still cued on the runway. APOLOGIES.

I'm going to having to send this five separate times; so all Bulletins will be at a minimum until get their fingers out and sort this!
in order of date urgency! ...

1. Lewes Favourites at the Crown Inn, Lewes Sussex Tuesday 24th. February
2. Global Voices Workshop  at the Gulbenkian Theatre Kent  Saturday 28th February & Sunday 1st March
3. HOT C dance. Sussex  Saturday 28 February
4. Burgess Hill Fairtrade Festival - Show of Hands and Asha Ceilidh. Sussex.Tickets going fast. March 07 + 08

Dear Everyone,
A quick reminder that the Lewes Favourites tunes practice session is at The Crown Inn, 191 High Street, Lewes BN7 2NA this month (if you aren't committed to pancake-related activities next Tuesday night). We will be using their rather beautiful wood-panelled room on the ground floor. The Crown is next to the Market Tower, overlooking the War Memorial.
Bob Kenward is bravely coming to Sussex this evening to sing songs about Kent at the Lewes Saturday Folk Club ( in the Elephant & Castle, White Hill, Lewes BN7 2DJ.
We still have places for Brian Peters's melodeon workshop on Saturday 28th. February and his ballad forum on Sunday 1st. March at the same place.

This is on Sunday 8th March in the Martlets Hall, Burgess Hill.   ONLY 43 tickets left

Asha Ceilidh Saturday March 7th
Advance sales for the Ceilidh - over half sold so far. Guess we will only have a max of 160 allowed on the night (maybe a few more).


So If you were planning on going to either of these but were leaving it to the last minute before buying a ticket - make sure you get in quick.
