Have your say

Open Mic Goodness returns to the Noels Arms tonight. It will be hosted by Archie Pearson and there will be a drum kit available on the night along with full P.A.

On Friday evening, the Noels Arms hosts Ray as part of their Early Doors sessions. He will perform an arsenal of feel food tunes.

More Coffe Co will put on their Closed Mike Session hosted by James V Joyce on Friday. The evening will start with some of James’s young muso’s working through the ranks until he gets to the band. The Genny B hosts a special bash for outgoing landlord Mich Rathbone with Indio Black performing on Friday.

This is definitely a gig not to miss, sell the children, quit your job, rob a bank or do whatever it takes.
