Make sure you have a ride on the West Somerset steam railway between Minehead and Bishops Lydeard. Lovely it is. Porlock Weir is very charming. Dunster Castle is very pleasant on a nice day and the town is an agreeable place. Have a stroll up Dunkery Beacon, Exmoor's highest point, a gentle stroll of about a mile and a half from the country road.

Catter, rafflebear, started a sn acoustic night somewhere in minehead when he moved down there.   I think it was the quay inn.

A novice was driving a car,
When down Porlock his son said "Papa,
If you drive at this rate
We are bound to be late.
Drive faster."
He did, and they are.

Mind how you go, boy.

We'll be visiting in June too. RafflesBear has sessions at various venues in Minehead, but the best one is at The Britannia Inn every Sunday from 4 until 8.00. There are occasional Tuesaday sessions there. There was a good open mic at The Top Ship in Porlock too. I suggest contacting Rafflesbear on here or Richard Neal on Facebook. Try Barbara Brown also. She has Saturday nights in Coombe Martin. Lots of venues listedon the SADFOLK websiteSADFOLK

If you go to http://www.shammickacoustic.org.uk and press 'local events' on the menu, you'll get a listing of regular and upcoming stuff in the following months within about 1 hour of Combe Martin (that includes Porlock). We update it every fortnight (roughly) so it will always be current.

If you want to play/join in then www.mineheadmusic.co.uk/events has the local sessions within 20 miles of Minehead.
Additionally there is SADFOLK as above (Somerset and Dorset if you're wondering) and Wessex Acoustic Calendar at www.sanchobramble.weebly.com
Would love to have any catters along to the Brit session, it's not limited to folk but has its share, very friendly, quite social, fun and welcoming as well.

Try these from Mr Red's Folk Map but check the datestamp and ring if going a long way. The contact may know the current venue - these things change overnight. Let me know if you find better info.
