From: Kev The Clogs
Date: 18 Nov 10 - 06:03 PM

Hi there,

It's Kev from Bishop Gundulf's Morris. ALSO, it's Kev from Brandywine Music (click HERE)

Brandywine Music (Me and my two colleagues) are music promoters. We promote live music events (all styles and genres) in and around Kent and are looking to expand in the New Year.

As part of our expansion, we are holding our "Grand Day Out" event on Saturday 12th February 2011. It is a Charity event – any collected monies go towards The Stag Theatre's fund for a new PA system/Help for Heroes/and a Local Hospice.

We have four Rock Bands in The Stag Theatre during the afternoon (The Diarys, The Outcast Band, The Geoff Everett Band, and Blackwater). We have seven folk/acoustic bands in The Plaza (underneath the main theatre in the afternoon) - (Ty Watling & Ayisha, No Worries, Skinners Rats, Hot Rats, Don Thompson and Ty & Ayisha again). A beer festival. A wine tasting afternoon . Street entertainers. Fire juggling. A chance to Fire Walk. Over ten Morris Dancing sides have been invited (two have confirmed at present, but WE WILL HAVE MORE!!!)

ALL OF THIS IS FREEE!!!!

There are two pubs of special note in the town (five pubs in total) - The Chequers and The Anchor - both would be VERY welcoming of any folkies that wanted to start/run a session for all/some of the day/evening!!!

Contributions in the collecting bucket will be greatly appreciated. PLUS! PLUS!!!

PLUS, PLUS, in the evening, at £20 per ticket, we have THE BLOCKHEADS as in, Ian Dury and The Blockheads!!!!

You could "mix'n'match" - you could do a bit of singinging/playing - watch a bit of the numerous Morris Dancing sides (and break dancing group) - watch and listen to some or all of the FREE live music - visit the beer festival AND then catch The Blockheads in the evening!!! If you want tickets for the Blockheads, please visit our website at Brandywine Music (click HERE) and register for our mailing list. You will then be entitled to a discount on your ticket price for the evening's performance of The Blockheads) OR call Keith on 07798 767770 and say that you are from Mudcat and saw Kev's Post OR call me (on the number below).

So COME ON the usual suspects!!! - The members of The Folk Mob, The Bard, The shirt Murderer, Essex Girl, The Tone Deaf Leopards, Pete The Hat, Skinney Richard at TFMN, Tam & TSO, Naughty 40, Mr Bridge, Raffles Bear and ANYONE ELSE who I have forgotten to list (sorry!!) and "does the circuit" - make a note in your diary!!!!!

We would LOVE to have you taking part at this event!!!

What more can I say to plug the day's events!!!??? It will be a FANTASTIC day out!!!!

You can contact me, for the Brandywine Charity Event at:-

John, I ALWAYS want you to do something music wise!!!! It's always a pleasure!!!!!

There is a posibility of having a session or two in either of the decent pubs, The Anchor or The Chequers. I'll have a word with them and see which one would be better. After that, then yes, you running a session for any intersted folkies would be GREAT. The whole idea is that there is a whole variety of music styles and entertainment for people to choose from - LIVE, FREE Rocks acts, LIVE, FREE Acoustic acts, LIVE, FREE folk session, LIVE, FREE Morris Dancing - you get the idea!!!!

Collections at ALL events.

THEN - the pay to see gig with The Blockheads in the evening!!

So, I'll PM you when I have confirmed one of the pubs, then it's up to ALL OF US to fill everything all day and evening!!

Glad youo're up for it mate!!!

Best wishes

Would have thought that people would have jumped at this - MAINLY free, great headline act, a variety of entertainment styles PLUS a session in the best pub in Sevenoaks!!!

We will be going to press with the advertising blurb at the start of next week.

If there won't be loads of folkies there, then I might as well not organise a session!!

As far as I am aware, the only festival that clashes at the moment is in Gloucestershire.

Come on folks, let's get some dialogue going here :-)

It seems ages away yet kev. I know its not so if you are doing the organising but Xmas and new year seem more immediate. Well done for getting all those folks to give up their time for free.
Some info about parking might be helpful - from what I remember its limited. Do the pubs mentioned have any?
Also - what beer do the pubs serve? Some singers will only go for real ale.

Four real ales in The Chequers where the session will hopefully be. Lots of real ales in the Beer Festival in The Plaza (where the acoustic music will be). Four large car parks in sevenoaks (one behind the main venue, three within 5-10 mins walk PLUS side streets. Sevenoaks train station is a 20 minute walk (up hill!!) to the venue. Bus from the station is evry half hour but stops at ridiculous o'clock at night. Best taxi firm in the area is Beeline Taxis, but there is also a taxi firm in the train station itself.

Spread the word Flora :-)

All is going well with the arrangements for the Day. Confirmed for Morris Dancing are Gong Scourers, Boughton Monchelsea and Invicta (possible from Bishop Gundulf's and Dead Horse). Confirmed, a fantastic Break Dancing group from a school in Ashford. All of the bands are confirmed. The Singaround session is now confirmed in The Chequers, opposite the Stag Theatre - also confirmed, John Barden and Don Thompson will be sharing the running of said session. Advertising leaflets are designed and at the printers.

All we need is YOU GUYS!!!

Hope you can make - spread the word please.

Thanks Tam. I tried it on mine and it seemed to work ok - but - go with your link as it obviously works!!!

Sue, there is a car park behind the Stag. It WILL be busy on the day - it's always busy on a NORMAL DAY!! I'll put a map on the "A Grand Day Out" page on our www.brandywinemusic.co.uk on Saturday. The HUGE car park is outside the Sports Centre. 5 mins walk for most of us, but I know you will take it a little slower, so 10 to 15 if that is the only place you can park. The pub where the sing-a-round is, does NOT have a car park - it is LITERALLY on the junction of The High Street AND London Road (all roads lead OUT of Sevenoaks to Tonbridge!!!)

In ORDER of likelyhood of parking, I would say 1) the one by the sports centre, 2) the one behind The Stag and 3) Blighs Meadow (behind the main drag of shops). If none of these, try the road called South Park - not at the top by the post office - just keep driving down until you find a space.

You can park near the Train Station and then walk up (10-15 mins). At end of the day, much easier to walk back down!!!!

During the day, parking will be "fun!!" - later on (6pm ish) parking will improve, and one of you should be able to move cars up to the car park behind The Stag - for session or for The Blockheads.

Sevenoaks may be "an area of outstanding natural property prices" (Dilligaf's description of where I live!!), but the parking is "not as good as it could be!!" - suck it and see folks - best I can offer.

SO PLEASED to see that there is interest in this one lately!!! Thought that we'd produced "a pup!!".

ANY QUESTIONS - ask here, PM me or email direct at kevin@brandywinemusic.co.uk

I am getting really excited about thos one!!! Look forward to seeing you on the day, somewhere, sometime, somehow!!!

regards

Kev

Remember, if you want tickets for The Blockheads in the evening, contact me directly by the methos listed above, and I'll give to tickets for £15each - that's a £350 saving (our priority customers will be paying £17!!!) - Morris Dancers will be getting this rate, so, if you are going to sing or play at the session, it's only fair that I give you the same rate!!!

If John is still up for doing the second stint, then I'm happy with that at very greatfull to him. Two six hour stints is a hell of a long time, so if someone wants to help him or step up to thr plate in the second one if John feels that he has done his bit by the, then that will be great to! I merely mention Royston as he said that he would be going.

Just turn up, have a good time and pitch in if needed.

No, right. Straight up the hill ( along way up the hill!), Anchor on your left, back door of Chequers a bit further up. (My son once asked me why we hadn't build the station near the town centre. I told him we could have, but on the whole we'd thought it better to build it near the railway line...)

Woot!!! to use a Tam phrase. At last, people seem to be getting interested at long last!! JOY!!

Great news Mr Bridge. Looking forward to seeing you AND noisy sprog and Noisy drummer (if she slaps you for that description, then you desrve it!!). Not heard from The Bard yet, but am certain he will be there for being in charge of the first session. Hoff, if he needs a hand in the second session, or needs someone to take it on, are you up for it???

Rachel, yes, turn right when you get out of the station. Stand at the traffic lights and you will see a chip shop. The bus stops RIGHT THERE and will take you into the centre of town. If you're feeling fit, the walk will take you about 15 mins - it is steep to start with and then gets easier when you pass the SECOND chip shop (on the right). If you have Hettie's number, give her a call. I suggested the day to her, but have not heard back. You could split the petrol costs and have someone to chat to there and back. Just a thought.

Can't wait for Saturday!!! I THINK that we have all the bases covered, but I am panicking now that we have forgotten something!!!

Just heard from The Bard. He will BE THERE and will do as much as he can, as he is getting over a nasty bout of Bronchitus.

We have now found a replacement act to fill The Diarys' slot (who had to pull out). We will be starting the day with Melonheadman, a local, indie/rock band.

MOSTLY, everything is going ok. A couple of problems to sort out on Friday, but nothing for you guys and gals to worry about!!

See you on Saturday.

Can't speak for anything other than the sing in the Chequers but that was quite pleasant. Nice pub although the beer prices were eyewatering - and Royston was simply gobsmacked (being used to London) to be told "Sorry we've stopped doing food" when trying to get a sandwich at maybe 4 pm - er how many people other than Basil Fawlty find it too demanding to put stuff between slices of bread? But the landlady was otherwise pleasant and helpful and the stone floor made good acoustics.

Generally the locals were accommodating although by about 1730 the wall of background noise (including, at times, from some who should have known better but were simply shouting to converse barely feet from a singer or player) made singing unrewarding.

Young Ben Little just keeps improving. Some guitar-maker really ought to give him a killer guitar just to get his endorsement.

By 1800 I was faded, having stressed myself out chasing around in the morning getting bits done on a timescale. I hope the Anchor was good.

What a good day. Wholeheartedly agree Richard with regard to Ben Little - he deserves a much better guitar and it would do a maker no harm at all in using him as a show-piece. We went on until 19:30 at the Anchor - nice pub and great landlord and Royston was brilliant but I was off to see 'The Blockheads' so I don't know how it went after that.
I think with a day like that it may be better to just do a mid-day to 7 o'clock in just the one pub, unless of course people want to carry on as they please. The Blockheads - absolutely brilliant and as tight as ever. A really stunning set and all in all a superb day. I hope the supported charities did well and well done to Brandywine Music for putting on such a Grand Day Out.

After all Kev the Clogs' work on this I think we should wish him a speedy recovery - on Sunday morning he decided to do a swallow dive (at least having a nasty mind I assume that "swallow" was behind it somewhere) down a flight of stairs into a picture glass at the bottom. Result: split head, and deep cuts to both arms, and surgery to remove large shard of glass this afternoon (Monday) from left arm.

More news when he returns to the joy of txt.

"The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated." But it COULD have been true!!! Thank luck, God or whatever you believe in that I am writting this now!!!

Thanks to all those who have sent best wishes.

Looking at it logically over a couple of days (and I have had A LOT of time im my bed to think it through), I don't think I fell down the stairs, I think I tripped UP them, slipped, over-compensated, collided with the glass picture frame and then the next thing that I remember is sitting on my bed spurting lots of red stuff!!!

Dilligaf is the star of all this, as she wrapped towels round both arms and called the ambulance, kept calm and was just BRILLIANT!!! Thankyou Val!!!xx

Back to the saga - off to casulaty in Farnborough. 12 out of 10 to the paramedics for the speed that they arrived and how they looked after me. I've never been in an ambulance before!! I kept apologising to the paramedic for bleeding so much on in her cleam ambulance.

Casualty - again, 12 out of 10 for repairing me. 11 stitches to the right arm, 5 to the left BEFORE they then found, via a second series of xrays, a shard of glass about 5 inches long and an inch wide!!!

Up to ward my son said the doctor!!!!! Sunday - well you know what I going to say - not much chance of anything happening!!

Monday - wait, wait, wait and wait some more. Off down to have it removed late afternoon. Back early evening to find Dilligaf sitting by the window knitting wolley hats :-)

Let out Tuesday afternoon (after being discharged at 8.40am!!) with a nice green carrier bag of sweeties (LOTS OF THEM!!) - managed to have a look at left arm whilst it was re-dressed - WOW!!! 7 stitches on top, 7 stitches underneath, so GRAND total is 25 plus a very nice scar on my forehead, bruises and generally feeling like a prat - a LUCKY prat!!!

Feeling VERY sore this afternoon. Bandaged up like Mr Atlas on my arms!!

Needless to say, our Grand Day Out on Saturday, seems a bloody long time ago. Didn't even have the luxury of waking up on Sunday luntime thinking "that was bloody good fun!!". At least I woke up!!!

SO, many thanks to all of you who attended, the morris sides, The Bard and Jan, Hoff, Fisheye and FMON, Naughty Forty, Royston, TDL with Ben and several others, plus all who may have seen the event advertised, attended, but have not posted. THANKYOU ALL!!!!

Only briefly chatted with my colleague, Keith, but we will let you know how much money was finally raised on the day as soon as possible.

Cheers folks - looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Kev the Clogs

Moral: get drunk upstairs, or sleep downstairs...

But glad you are OK, honest...

Wouldn't have minded (much!!) if I'd been drunk - I was BLOODY sober!!! That's what I can't work out!!!

Much better today.
