Of course all Mudcatters are welcome at Doom, Gloom and Despondency at 4.30pm Thursday in the Faulkener Bar. (Must be one of the longest running fringe events by now, along with the MBS and the one that doesn't happen on Friday afternoon.)

Appropriately subdued dress and demeanour is required throughout this sombre occasion and you will be evicted for failing to comply. There is a TROPHY for the most depressing song.

However it has been getting a little too serious of late. Trying to make people laugh, especially the judges, is encouraged but please do it in a despondent manner! Ah, I remember when MBS Lynne's brother won with a rather sad song about traffic lights. Those were the days. One year the judges had to evict themselves for levity!
