‘Last Wednesdays’ session

Message from Gill A, website editor, 13.01.2017:

Last Wednesday session still going strong at The Grange as detailed below (I am writing this at January 2017). So, don’t be shy – go along and see what it’s all about!

Message from Bob Little.

Hi People,

The Ealing English Tunes Session is now re-starting!

After a hiatus while we looked for a new venue (management change at the old pub), I am delighted to say that Barbara the manager of the Grange pub in Ealing has welcomed us with open arms.

Our inaugural meeting will be on next Wednesday 24’th February (2016) at 7:30, and we’ll then meet on the last Wednesday of every month thereafter.

The address of the pub is:- the Grange pub, Warwick Road, Ealing W5 3XH. Tel 020 8567 7617.

The nearest tube is Ealing Common on the Piccadilly & District Lines, while the E11 bus stops close by and there’s also plenty of street parking around the pub. More directions here:- http://www.grangeealing.co.uk/

As before we’ll look to start with a few sets from our tunebook – https://ealingsessions.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/ealing-session-1st-half-tunes-2-copy1.pdf – but we’ll then go on to pretty much any-English-ish-thing that anyone cares to lead.

AND, as part of the pub’s building programme, Barbara is having a Bandstand erected in the pub gardens and is looking for people to come and play in it in the Summer.

Hope to see Y’all on Wednesday.
