Unfortunately , I had the same Saturday experience as Raggytash.I went down a bit earlier 3 O'clockish to the Dolphin expecting a singaround /session led by Arthur?. Nowt happening, just a lot of people milling / hanging around outside the Bay.
Saw the same group of musicians /singers in the Laurel who were "giving it plenty" but the room was so tiny it wouldn't have taken another couple of people . Didn't stay long and when I got back to the top of the bank, thanked my lucky stars that I hadn't taken my guitar with me. The extra weight would have killed me.
As for the whole situation , no one even looked like pestering me and missus for some money for the Lifeboat Fund so I hope there was some structure in place for raising money for this noble cause.
