Time flies like an arrow, they say - and fruit flies like a banana.
It's high time I wrote to everyone to remind you all that we have another of our regular Frittenden session on this coming Sunday, the 25th March.
This time we're delighted to be able to announce that our featured guest for the evening is our good friend Peter Collins, a many who I was lucky to meet first at a session in the Neptune's Hall at Broadstairs some time in the late 1970s. I can't begin to tell you how many times I've run into him since that time, or how much entertainment he has given us.
Peter's got more songs than any man or woman I know, so expect a varied evening that will mix songs of great hilarity and entertainment with others that are much more thoughtful.
Don't worry if you're not a singer - the format we follow at Frittenden will ensure plenty of time for playing tunes, dancing and even old-fashioned storytelling if that's your bent.
The Frittenden sessions take place at the Bell & Jorrocks pub at Frittenden, Kent, and start at 8pm and continue until it's time to sing Nellie Dean and say goodnight. They're informal and free, with lots of old fashioned and traditional songs and tunes, and a big emphasis on variety, humour and entertainment generally - as we like to say, if you liked your pub the way it was before the telly and the computer came, this is the event for you.
