Music starts after 8.00 pm, the exact time being determined by the number in the audience... and we finish at 11 pm. It is not always easy to park before about 8.15 pm but remember you can park on the road. Music includes local singers doing short floor spots, extended floor spots and sessions from singers and players as well as excellent professional acts.
The club meets at The George and Dragon in Houghton, near Amberley, West Sussex, (Post code: BN18 9LW, Telephone: 01798 831559) where the beer is excellent, the pub (one of the oldest in Sussex) full of delightful character and where there is food available until 9.00 pm.
The music is varied.... Traditional, country, blue grass, hot 1930s jazz, and a good few singer songwriters. It is our unswerving policy to put on acts whose priority is to entertain and who like to engage with the audience rather than impress. If you go away at the end of the evening with a smile on your face, we have succeeded!!
For anyone looking for a floor spot, extended floor spot , shorter session or full gig, contact Andy. Always pleased to hear from singers and players, new and old to the club. We will always do what we can to get you on. The room holds 40 people comfortably and because of the rather soft acoustics we do usually have a PA to share out the joy of the music to those at the back!
We do ask everyone for a modest entry fee, usually just a voluntary contribution for singaround nights, £2 for open mike nights, £5 otherwise.
