over hosting a well established open mic night which formerly took place
at the Whole World Cafe also in Folkestone which sadly recently closed. It

be useful but please contact me for more information if your time allows. We
always host live music through the week - normally of a jazz or folk /
flamenco / latin bias every Thurs evening with dining, and would welcome the
opportunity to regularly feature in your listings. I understand that this may
carry a 'charge' for your time so could you give me a indicator of what that
