If you are going to Farnham Adult Storytelling Practice and Coaching Group-
BEWARE - this month it's on the 3rd Wednesday - the 16th March - so don't get caught out!

Tuesday 8th March  : Waxing Lyrical – Ewell- Adult Storytelling Practice and Coaching Group

Wednesday 16th March
:  Waxing Lyrical – Farnham Maltings - Adult Storytelling Practice and Coaching Group
These sessions enable those new to storytelling to try exercises in storytelling, and to get some coaching on how they tell stories.  It is a more informal setting than the storytelling circle. They also provide more experienced storytellers with the opportunity to get feedback on stories they are working upon. You do not need to have a story to tell as you will benefit from taking part in the different activities of the evening.

Venue : West Kiln Room, Farnham Maltings, Bridge Square, Farnham, Surrey GU9 7QR
Time:     7.30-10pm
Price:     £6/ £4 concessions
Age restrictions: Not suitable for under 14's
Facilitated by Terrie Howey and Belinda McKenna

15th March
Mrs Yarringtons Music Club
Phillip Henry
Crowhurst Park

Phillip Henry is a figurehead for the next generation of English slide guitarists. His virtuoso playing encompasses 360 degrees of influence. He has studied the Delta blues bottleneck for many years and has developed a touch reminiscent of Ry Cooder.
“I like your style boy”: Louisiana Red
Phillip has also developed an astounding dobro technique and is fast becoming recognised as one of the finest players England has produced. His compositions and arrangements have been featured a number of times on BBC Radio Three’s Late Junction programme including a live performance at Maida Vale studios for the Late Junction ten year anniversary special.
In more recent years he has become fascinated with the Indian classical slide guitar tradition and in particular the playing of Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya, a true virtuoso of both Indian classical music and slide guitar. Phillip has spent a number of months studying under the great master in Calcutta and has been described by him as “a technically developed slide guitarist”.

Tickets are £10 but most of you out there now have £2 discount vouchers so that makes a very reasonable £8 (shows a good education working out 10-2 = 8).
Tickets from all the usual places, online or at The Kings Head, Battle.
With support from Anita Jardine expect an evening of exceptional Alt blues (whatever that means) All the fun starts at 8pm
For more info on Phillip Henry check out

Subject: Updates - Jacqui Dankworth - And twice Knightley in Alfriston

Hello and Sorry to those of you that have had problems accessing the Hailsham Pavilion website......
Attempts have been made to "patch it up" but it is a bit hit and miss and as I understand plans are afoot to build a brand new site with a new address...
I’ll let you know what happens but meanwhile if you want to book tickets for a Spyboy show being staged at the Pavilion you will probably have to use the phone 01323 841414

The same applies for Spyboy shows being staged at other venues - they can ONLY be booked by phone on 01323 841414

(I am happy to reserve seats for you if you cannot get through to the Pavilion)

Wednesday 29th June

After that magical summer’s night in Alfriston last year we have decided to do it all over again.....
