Three very friendly singers and one husband, are willing to travel for a good singing session to welcome in the New Year. Have voices, have practiced, have rehearsed are still firm friends,(and know each others songs inside out), would love to share songs, stories, music,laughs,jokes, bottles of say port, brandy etc. with other like minded folkies. All, any information/invites gratefully received Theresa

If you are up to getting up the following morning, Teresa and Noreen and ..., you could try the session on New Year's Day at the Blue Boar at Temple Grafton near Stratford-upon-Avon. From 12 noon onwards the Shakespeare Morris Men will be dancing then performing a mummers play then music/singing until everyone decides that they have had enough!
All folkies welcome!

We're one, two, three jolly boys all in one line ...
Wassail!

There's usually an excellent week long session in Whitby for New year...mostly based in the Tap & Spile...I can't make it this year...new Grandchild imminent....but there are a million worse ways to bring in the New Year!

Thanks alanww , great idea but a bit too far, for a daytime trip , it's really the midnight Happy New Year bit were hoping for. brid widder, fond memories of past Whitby New Years, though tinged with the horrors of being frozen to death in our flat, also been to Whitby twice this year. Still woth bearing in mind though. Noreen would be great to have you tag along, and no need for small voice. Watch this thread you never know what delights may be on offer just brush up on "Here we come a wassailing among the leaves so green2 (I must learn where the italic button is). cheers Theresa

There's always a good session (music and singing, plus a huge amount of beer) at the Harrington Arms in Gawsworth, near Congleton, Cheshire. (Midday onwards)

Sue & I have been invited to "the Clock", South Normanton, Derbyshire.

PS It's my birthday on New Year's day, but don't tell anyone!

May try Whitby, the cottage is available at the mo- just a bit on the pricy side but the acoustics were great weren't they?

If anybody fancies a trip to deepest darkest Kent, then Whitstable Hoodeners are doing various pubs in the Thanet area from Nov-Jan and all are welcome. The "daft bit" only lasts for 15mins, then we sing stuff and play stuff and invite others to join in/lead with stuff and we imbibe the odd flagon or three. Very boring really, don't know why we do it? Will postdates & venues when I get told, I'm only Betsy, so I'm last to know!!!

There's likely to be a New Year's Day sing at the Crown at Buntingford, Herts, at lunchtime.
For a long time there was a good sing at the Cabinet Rooms in Reed, on the Herts/Cambridge border, but the curmudgeonly landlord ensured that it died out - hence the move south down the A10 to Buntingford for last January and (hopefully) this coming one.

Great ideas, thanks all, keep 'em coming. Any "first footing" going on?
