I think that's not nice.... and your pint of beer is becoming a distant dream. Bread pudding don't get stale, cos there's too much fat and fruit in it. However, other suggested uses might be..... put between the strings of a violin, or stufed down the mouth of a trumpet, it'd make a good mute..... or .......?
Behave or you're gonna join the fishes.......... the cray fishes !

Danielle is the only barmaid I've met, though we did meet her mama.

She might be Felicity - who knows?

Don't anyone else buy Pierre a pint, he won't be able to find either bus stop, and have to sleep on the river bank with the Crayfish twins.

I think I've noticed people coming out of the Stars and turning left to catch the 233 to Eltham

If you turn right and go just past the traffic lights you get a choice of the 233 and the 321 which is a more direct route

Hope this may be helpful

A excellent night once again I throughly enjoyed it.
The bread pudding was very nice.
A wonderful mix of players and singers well done to everyone?
It was good to have the Landlord and Bar staff enjoying the event too.

It was a right Palaver having no cash point nearby and after a mile walk there and back to the nearest cash point and finding it Out of Order I was pleased to find a cash back felicity behind the bar which cheered me up .

Next week is the build up too Sidmouth so I will not be attending in order to save money but there on after I will be there each week and having a quick and reliable transport system home helps .

Once again this is a great weekly event and I advised anyone to has not attended yet to get down to the seven Stars in Footcray.
Regards to all Pierre.

What I like about this is session is that everybody is invited to join in / play along in a sort of jam session fashion - I like this as I can just jingle my guitar here and there (if I know the tune that is!) and not have to worry too much about being put on the spot to sing a song! It was good to see my old friend Graeham Hood again with his wonderful dulcimer playing.

GF, can I suggest you edit the RemoteGoat link a bit?

a) It doesn't come up if you search on category "acoustic music", or indeed just plain "music". It only comes up if you leave "event type" blank or "any". Editing the tags a bit to add music references should cure that.

b) Even though the heading says "this event is free" there is a "buy tickets" box on the diary entry below. I'd edit that out.

Joe has disallowed my posting from The Management because of too much trouble with switched identities, so the above posting from Pierre makes no sense out of context. His earlier posting

I am a bit weary about sitting the beer garden on Monday Night.
Now I have learned that

"Ronnie and Reggie The Crayfish Twins have a protection racket on that part of the River Cray ?

Ronnie and Reggie may reside on the banks of the ol River Lea in Hackney East London
"But if they Jump on there Motor Pike and Side Carp
They could be in Foots Cray in an hour demanding half of the Raffle Money?

caused me to say it was a spooky posting because, I posted as The Management. The Management were characters akin to Ronnie and Reggie.
When the Sunday sessions began some years ago at 7 Stars, I was promised that Hale and Pace would attend the opening night. They didn't.

If the weather is warm and dry, I'm up for it, but Len might not be, as he tends to get very cold, very quickly. I don't want to risk getting a chill either before Sidmouth, so will play it by ear. Youguys are welcome to try it though. I could see that Mick was having trouble with his glass washer. The one down the road plays up all the time.
If you want a ducking stool, I bet "Auntie Wainwright" of Old Crap Antiques has got one. No promises, but in the oven now is an attempt at a bread pudding. (Loaf bought at Lidl with the texture of felt). It smells good but I may have made it too wet!

See you all on Monday

Having taken part in the Folk Week o/s session, I can tell you that not everyone was happy about it. We'll fill up the restaurant area first, then maybe spread into the main bar with Mick's permission. I don't think having a second session in the pool room would be a move.
Now, those alternative names... puts on posh Monty Pythonesque voice to say "Now this is getting extremely silly...."

We should maybe call it the Star Bar Sessions in honour of chocolate.

If any Gong Scourers are reading this.... you are our local side. Come and see us....

Jen.... you'll be very welcome..... shame the woodshed sessions have stopped.... especially as they brought money in...... she'll learn.

See you all on Monday

Perhaps we could call ours "The Coal-Hole Sessions" :-)

and it looks like there's a precedent for the two-in-one idea!

PS alternative session names
"The Oil-Tank Sessions"
"The Gasometer Sessions"
I was thinking of "The Storage Heater Sessions" but I thought that sounded silly.

girl friday - when the wrotham was ALL MINE (evil laugh) the woodshed sessions were daily during folk week and monthly throughout the rest of the year. they were a great success. to answer your question, the woodsheds during folk week were at capacity. one day we even had a fringe woodshed under the awning outside in the rain. not during folk week they were less predictable but we generally had 10+ musicians even on quiet nights. they were profitable to me as a landlady which is important to state since they became sustainable part of the business. the wrotham also has a decent space for sessions...not sure what the 7 stars is like - will have to come by to see!

the new landlady at the wrotham has changed the music format in general and has cancelled the woodshed throughout the year (tsk tsk), but IT IS STILL ON during folk week. bob's still running them and he has some great guests lined up for this year, i would highly recommend it. there will be a pub gig 1-2, its worth being there at 2 to save your space.

Even IF the numbers grew, it would be a shame to move out of the bar because we are rubbing shoulders with an appreciative public.

Perhaps we could run two sessions simultaneously at different ends of the pub!!!!

Thank you Woodsie. The only Woodshed sessions I have been to were during Folk Week. They were great, and maybe Jen can tell us what they were like on regular nights. As long as people can get comfortably to the bar, and to the toilets. I hate being stuck in the midst of fiddler's elbows, box player's elbow's, gig boxes and bags under my feet. I think that sensibly, 20 to 30 people would be manageable. Any more than that, and we'll have to get Mick to empty his upstairs room.
