Brian - Gay and Paul have split , and when you were around I was in Singapore ! The New club is very pleasant , but Thursday is a bad night for me ! Join Mudcat - Its free and PMs are an easy way to keep in touch . Before I went abroad , I was part of Haywain too . When I got back to UK there was gthe A40 Improvement Scheme , an excellent Cheilidh band

Very serious indeed, GUEST,Archie! If they work in downtown Toronto they spend 3 hours each day just getting there and back, probably closer to 4 in winter and on summer Fridays. But unsustainability is another thread...

Archie, I've just been listening to Hayes FM Radio (91.8 khz) and they mentioned the reopened club more than once.

They gave full details in the listings section but said that it was running "every Thursday" so you might want to put them right on that

I though about asking what is stopping you setting one up in beautiful Uxbridge, Ontario and then I Googled Uxbridge, Ontario, Canada to find you were set up by 'no fun allowed' Quakers and no facilities to have fun other than a few golf courses and exercise places. Living there seems to be a very serious business.

Last evening went very well with no need for personal subsidy this time. Terence O'Flaherty was a joy.

Geez, this at least the 8th time I've perked up with delight at this thread title, only to realize my folly. A folk club in beautiful Uxbridge, Ontario (Canada) would mean I wouldn't always need to go into the big, smelly, trafficky Toronto, ON. Oh well, though my personal delight is dashed once again, I'm thoroughly tickled for you who are near the Uxbridge under discussion.

I'll be thinking of you all tonight!

Thanks for comments - can't afford to subsidise at all, so that won't go on for long. Singarounds are a great suggestion, but I have Maidenhead and Elsdale happening on the same night - and we are just starting but confined by venue to a Thursday. For this reason, we need to grow a bit and planning to introduce singers evenings in January when we have some traction. Your choice Leadfingers is pure fun in Uxbridge or deep and meaningful in Maidenhead.

Archie, your comment about having to subsidise the first night rang a warning bell with me. Probably every organiser subsidises a bit from time to time, but don't let it become a habit for your own sake and the sake of the club. It can be helpful to have a few singarounds with a modest entry fee or collection so that you've got a reserve to help out if you are giving guaranteed fees. Obviously many clubs have raffles for that purpose as well.

Band of Two are the Fun in Folk. Anyone coming on the 28th will have a great evening downright miserable sods excepted. You will also hear resident singer songwriters: Chloe Brighton, new to the UK from the USA, and the Elderberries who surprised us all last month with beautiful renditions of their own creations and some popular folk songs of the last fifty years.

The previous incarnation was on it's way out just as I got back into folk a few years back. Christine (in particular) and I are not that far away, so we must get along soon. Guest list looks very strong, so deserves support.

Why not put the programme on the website so we don't have to download a file?   

If you want a downloadable programme as well, it really needs to be in a format accessible to most people.

Many thanks to Terry!
