Whilst we do not run a 'strictly ticket only' club, we are clearly obliged to limit the number of persons admitted to the room. For this reason, we reserve the right to refuse admission to those who arrive after all tickets for a particular guest have been sold.

We are sorry if this causes inconvenience to anyone - please contact Bernard beforehand to book your tickets to avoid disappointment!

 
PLEASE ALSO NOTE:

We have an Advance Booking Discount system - Guest Nights have two prices - pre-booked ticket prices and pay-on-the-door prices.

1 November

£8.00

DAVE GOULDER

OR
£6.00

advance booking

Dave Goulder was born in 1939 of a Derbyshire farming family - a railway footplate man, mountaineer, motorcyclist, classical music enthusiast, Spanish guitar player, Jew's harp virtuoso, songwriter, poet, singer, hedge layer, junk sculptor, naturalist, community arts administrator, drystone walling Master Craftsman/instructor, ceilidh band member, failed mandolin player, and arthritic.

Steam freaks looking for songs and sounds of British Railways; dry stone walling enthusiasts wanting a step-by-step instruction video/dvd complete with accompanying handbook; singers looking for the words to that half-remembered Goulder song; poor souls who want a cd version of that worn-out vinyl disc; motor cycle maniacs to tell tall tales; long lost mates just looking for him... if this isn't enough to convince you to join him on this rare tour of selected folk clubs, then the fact that he wrote "January Man" should clinch it!

 






Residents' Support was from Grassroots, Nick & Lin, Stewart and Nelson Peach, with the Warburton Souling Play providing our pre-raffle-ite spot!

Dave was on top form, and even included Stanley Accrington's Last Train... He was delighted with the warmth of our audience, and their willingness to join in - a compliment we often hear from our guests! His friend John also joined him for a couple of songs and tunes on flute.
