If those are the things people would like to do, then yes, all or any of these things. But since this is under the 'music' section, it will quite likely be a session of music!

The basic idea is a music session where everyone joins in on instruments, but songs and singing will be welcomed too. Since this is the first (but hopefully not the last) of these that we are running, it really depends on who turns up and what they want to do. We participated in the session in the little bar at the White Swan at Bedworth on the weekend and it was really great...very enjoyable, comfortable, not too daunting for beginners to join in....we would quite like it to be something like that.

I think the answer is....turn up and make it what you want it to be. (Within reason of course!)

Love Lynne

Well, it didn't start well, despite finding my way to Donithorpe I came across the Masons Arms.... wrong one, so using my homing instinct I drove off in the wrong direction.
Accosting some friendly natives, I was soon kerb-crawling around the wonderful traffic calming system and found the Turk's Head. Very carelessly someone had left it in a pub car park , probably the same someone who had left those mason's arms at the cross-roads. Minutes later, I entered the public bar, then it went downhill, as there was a widescreen telly showing some men kicking a round object about a field for no particular reason. I persevered though, ordered a pintmade ... and before I could pay, thee came the sound of clapping from the 'other' bar, unseen by me. So I asked the hostelier to kindly carry it through to the other side , where I would meet him.. having said this , I rushed outside of the pub to where my honed instincts said there would be a door... and there was... a locked door..! Making my way back into the public bar, I met the hostelier who had com out to fetch me, and show me the secret entance to the lounge bar hidden behind the coat rack..!
In that the other realm sat Lynn holding court, squirming about every 30 seconds in order to retrieve her disceet battery powered humming companion, yes, her mobile phone, and generally bouncing off the four walls like she was in a giat pin-ball machine. Soon I discovered the jewel of the nile basking in the glow of the bar lights, Old Rosie... I had found sanctuary.. real cider!!!
Oh yeah, there was some singing and .. and playing of instruments and stuff ..
got home about 1.30am ..(I went North instead of south)..excellent nonetheless!

My problem, now, is to try and work out who everyone was. ie fitting real people to all these mudcat aliases. Despite MuddleC's lack of directional sense (I found the lounge bar by trial and error), the evening went very well - particularly once the mob from Hull turned up and doubled our numbers in one go.

We had the same problem as Muddle C. Trying to get to an unknown place in the dark so you can't see the road map unless you stop and where the street signs are few and far between....

However, the journey was worth it for a good evening of music and song and the chance to meet even more Mudcatters.

It was so good to meet new faces and make reacquaintance with known friends. We even had a link up to the Mudchat for a while, until Skipjack's phone ran out of oomph, and were able to let CapriUni and Open Mike know what was going on.

Maine is going to seem soooo quiet after all this (must get some sessions organised...)

If the prospect of folk club ever gets off the ground we`d really like to play there. We STILL get ignored by most of our local promoters / clubs in the Derby / Burton area dispite our on-going national "success". Please contact us via our website should you fancy a bit of guitar nonsense...www.petesmithjohnbuckley.co.uk Merry Xmas.

Trouble with starting a folk club is the apathy of the locals in this part of the world. Despite the fact that I publicised our session around the area, we wouldn't actually have had one if it hadn't been for the influx of Mudcatters from Hull, Shanghai and the USA! We can't really depend on that to keep a regular folk club going! One of the only three locals other than us who turned up to play was the person with whom we are planning to start a club. I've had offers from several people to guest at the club if it gets off the ground, so now all we need is a venue and some sort of certainty of an audience! Not much to ask?

I enjoyed meself, me. First evening since Lent I haven't been shitfaced, and actually remembered last night's fun. And I got to sleep on Kate who is Katherine, with only some joists between us.

Lovely meeting Jacqui and Kendall, and Shanghai Frank (who seemed far too well socially able to be a Mudcatter), Donisthorpe Celtic (Frank two), the very lovely Rachel, who promised me she wouldn't get drawn into this place, and MuddleC, who is Rob and not Tim.

Best of all was meeting Ted and Lynne, whom made it happen, and looked lovely in their matching flashing nipples. Who was that brown man in the empire-buiders? I liked him, 'cause he reckoned I was better value than that attention-seeking violinist fellow. Also, it was nice to meet Shady Lady, who is very beautiful and had the biggest hair there.

One made it to bed at 2am, happier for being a lot closer to the Sables Award for the most 'catters eyeballed.

'Socially able!!!!' Moi! If I had had a few more pints of that bloody Old Rosie Cider I think it might have been a different story, might have found an alternative use for the bodhran!

It was a GREAT session and I was really happy to meet more catters and non catters. We are pretty deprived of sessions here in Shanghai so getting a chance to here other musicians made the trip over to the UK a real pleasure.

Thanks to Lynne and EPN for getting it going and to all those that came to the session.

I did wonder who the chap was in the shorts!

Next time I will not have a new scratchy bodhran with me buy one of my older ones which has a nicer softer sound.

Just been reading some other threads, and came across the Public Entertainment Licence requirement , which led me on to this quote from the Musicians Union site http://www.musiciansunion.org.uk/articles/latest_news.shtml

Once enacted, the Licensing Act 2003 will be published next week. This does not mean that the new law comes into immediate effect. It will probabably be 2005 before the present licensing regime finally lapses, and the 'two in a bar rule' will continue until then. It will probably be 5-6 months before new licences can be applied for. Then the old and new licensing regimes will operate in parallel during a Transition Period designed to allow time for local authorities to process the conversion of over 150,000 existing licences. Sources suggest 1st January 2004 will be the starting date for the Transition Period which is likely to last for at least a year. Only after the end of the Transition Period will the 'two in a bar' entertainment licensing exemption finally cease.
Premises licence applications will probably need to be submitted at least 28 days in advance to the local authority with the fee up front. Applicants wanting live music will have to 'tick the box' for this regulated entertainment. The application must include a plan of the premises and an 'operating schedule' setting out the licensable activities and the times during which they will be taking place. Live music applications may need to go into some detail since this could determine to a great extent whether subsequent local authority conditions are proportionate. Premises that do not seek live music authorisation initially will be able to apply to vary the licence at a later date. The cost of variation is likely to be the same as a full application.

Premises which do not hold a premises licence authorising live music can apply for a Temporary Event Notice, as can premises where live music is authorised but there is a wish to provide entertainment which is beyond the scope of the licence. The Government estimates the cost at £20. The application must be submitted simultaneously to the police and local authority at least 10 working days in advance of the event on 'a prescribed form'. Only the police have power to object and then only in relation to the crime and disorder objective.

A maximum of 12 Temporary Event Notices per year per premises will be allowed. Up to 499 persons may attend/participate in the event at any one time, and the event may last up to 96 hours. However, no more than a total of 15 days per year per premises of such events is allowed. Back-to-back Temporary Event Notices are prohibited - there must be a minimum of 24 hours between Temporary Event Notices.

All performers were potentially liable to criminal prosecution unless taking all reasonable precautions to ensure venues were licensed for their performance.

JEESE, I must have been in a trance this last year, just been reading other PEL threads and it seems that unless the right boxes are 'ticked' when first applying, then much grief and moolah is involved.-otherwise the thought police raid you!

If however, there is Morris Dancing involved, the event is exempt!
So first ten minutes will be a presentation on tying bells to the ankles, later on there will be synchronised hankie waving and at the end a quick hop,skip & jump on our way out!

Hi Lynne,
Just came across the thread during one of my very infrequent trawls through mudcat and am sorry to have missed the session. I presume that you e-mailed me about it at using an old address. We have moved from Measham and are now living in Ashby where I can be contacted on mail@richardashe.co.uk
Keep me posted.
Cheers and Happy New Year to you all.
PS I shall not forget the look of amazement on T-W Juniors' face at Sidmouth when he was hanging round the Arena stage door for autographs only to find one of his school teachers lurking inside. It's a small world! Now about that missing homework....

Richard! I'm sorry you missed it too...I didn't e-mail you 'cos i thought the e-mail addy I had wasn't current. I asked Steve Hartley to let you know, but, of course, you'd moved.

We're hoping to have another at the end of March...I will let you know the date.

Love Lynne
