Subject: New Singaround, Chorlton, Manchester
From: Les in Chorlton
Date: 19 Nov 07 - 11:25 AM

Wednesday 5 December in the side room at the Beech on Beech Road in Cholrton, Manchester, we plan to hold a singaround.

Many of you will be familiar with this cunning plan because I have been running it around for a while.

The general idea is that we gather in the side room and sing mostly, but not exclusively, traditional folk songs. We will probably play a few tunes as well and people may recite poems. Card tricks have been known but the handling of ferrets is most unwelcome.

I don't think people will stand up and whilst we will be sociable and chat about this and that I trust singers etc. will be heard with something akin to er ... respect.

No charge will be made, I will probably "Chair" the fist night in that I will ask people if they want to sing. If two singers are present we will probably sing songs in turn until we run out of songs or time. If 6 singers turn up we will all sing one then go round again. I guess we will have a break and people can announce other events such as:

Chorlton Folk Club
Every Thursday at South West Manchester Cricket Club
Ellesmere Road Chorlton.

The Landlord is keen for us to use the room and I trust much beer will be drunk, of which more details later, but Timothy Taylor Landlord is excellent.

If we have a good time and the Landlord is willing we will perhaps meet a month later

How does this look then?

Cheers

Les

She certainly did Grag, along with Muddy Waters on Chorlton - Mauldeth Road Station near the junction with Alexandra Park Road and Mauldeth Road West. The station and the line have gone and the route is now a tarmacked cycle way. I did check the Blue Plaque thing but it didn't really lend itself!

I will come along if JJ is allowed to handle his ferrets...!

The reviews of this pub at the Beer in the Evening website are very mixed, but it seems pipe-players and lycra-clad cyclists could be an interesting feature.

For those like me who have to travel from afar to get there the Google map for the Beech Inn, 72 Beech Road, M21 9EG may help.

Actually JJ and I are still working on the words to this one, but when we've finished it will be a 100% genuine old traditional hunting ballad!

My dad bred ferrets in Wexford, Eire in his youth and went out rabbiting with them. He sold the rabbits to the local butcher. He also "collected" golf balls off the local golf course and sold them back to the golfers. Being in a large family he didn't get pocket money and had to make his own.

Isn't it a small world? My Dad kept Ferrets in Ellesmere Port during and just after the war for the same rabbit bothering purposes. He might give us a song on the 5th, but since he died in 1949 the odds are against it.

Mike, are you the famous Chorlton Singer and footballer?

I have just checked with the Jimmy the owner and we are still welcome on December 5th. This is a great relief as pubs can change preferences at the drop of a hat!

I will be there around 8.30 and I guess we will start when the mood takes us or around 9 ish. It is a public room so I don't know what we will do if it's full of a stag night or something.

Look forward to meeting you all and having a night of good singing
