Ah, you're probably correct in that it was my own failure to grasp the protocol. I'm actually not all that experienced in these kind of things - I've only been to a handful of different singarounds/ events and I guess I don't know when it's appropriate and inappropriate to stick your oar in. I think because I had an idea of this being a singaround (and now I think about it, perhaps it wasn't widely billed as such) my understanding was that it would have been a little more informal and open in invitational style.

But I'd like to reemphasise that I did enjoy going, and joining in choruses etc. - I'm not around the next couple of days but I will probably turn up again next week, even if it is the same kind of set up, because the music was very good.

Also, the Baltic Fleet is a great pub!
