Jam Session 30th June

The first of our new jam sessions will take place at 8pm on Thursday 30th June.  For those of you who’ve been to Open Mic before, it’ll be a bit like the end of Open Mic where everyone gets up on stage together, but hopefully for the whole evening.  Please bring an instrument if you have one and a bottle if you need one.  Free entry.

Matt Alford’s book reading

Many thanks to everyone who attended Matt Alford’s book reading last Thursday – one of the most atmospheric events we’ve held at the Rec House.  Copies of Matt’s book, The Writer With No Hands, are available on Amazon here.

Open Mic

Many thanks to everyone who came along to our latest open mic event last night.  The standard was particularly high and it was good to see a number of first-time performers.  Because there are five Thursdays in June the next event will be in three weeks’ time, on July 7th, but in a fortnight’s time on June 30th we’re trying out a jam session at which all the Open Mic performers are especially welcome.  See you then!

Book Reading 23rd June

At 8pm on Thursday 23rd June, local author Matthew Alford will be reading a selection from his book The Writer With No Handsan investigative true-life crime drama with intrigue and conspiracy at the highest levels of the American establishment.

  • £2 entry with complimentary glass of Cava.
  • Live music during the interval.
  • A question and answer session with the author.

Matt’s compelling story-telling style has already gripped audiences at our Open Mic events.  Come along and hear what Vice magazine has called “the greatest spy story never told”.  Copies will be on sale.

Band Night

Yesterday’s inaugural band night was well attended and generally well received.  Open Mic regulars the Moonlit Poachers joined the four advertised bands from Bath Spa University – JT Leon, Water & Wine, Lyon Hansen and Emmy Lila.  There were many new faces in the audience who we hope to see at some of our future events.  The next band night will be a fundraiser for Soul Survivor on July 14th.
