I so enjoyed my ten minutes with you all at the Tanner last night that I thought that I [who hasn't vowed never to drink again] would have a go at proposing a possible next session ...

On the first Sunday of every month at the Horseshoe Inn (off Snowsfields) there's [what can best be described as] an English Folk jamming session. Lots of accordions, the odd helican, flute and serpant cram into the back room and play all afternoon [and possibly into the evening, I just had to leave due to a bad roast potato] - it is fantastic!!

Not quite a tea dance, Jacke, but I'm sure after a couple of beverages we could muster up the odd do-se-do.

For those of us to whom it matters, I also spent the afternoon in there with a lively 2 year old and it was OK!

And the food's ok - there's also a beer garden and a roof terrace ... oh, and beer.

So .... anyone fancy Sunday 3 April?

I may well do that, perhaps I'll bring some bones.

That session has been going for decades. I first found it in the old Goose and Firkin on the Borough Road, the very original microbrewery pub I believe, in the early 80's. It keeps moving round, and I'd lost track of it. Thanks for rediscovering it Julie. The other one thats a bit similar is on the first Monday of the month (or 2nd if 1st is a Bank Hol) at 9pm in the George BHSt. Thats French rather than English and is quite unique, and has also been in that pub for over 20 years.

Sorry Jo, I think we discussed this after a drink or two previously and I promised to post details of where they were now to be found

What time of day does this festivity kick off? I mean, if it's not a tea it at tea time or supper time?
