wems fest

Thursday 5 March - Blazin’ Fiddles - Emsworth Baptist Church

Friday 6 March - Comedy @ The Club - Emsworth Sports & Social Club

Saturday 21 March - Aly Bain & Phil Cunningham - Emsworth Baptist Church

Saturday 28 March (TBC) - Doug MacLeod  Multiple Blues Music Award winner - St. James Parish Hall, Emsworth

Looking ahead, the Celts continue with Eddi Reader celebrating '40 Years Live' on Oct 7, and Skerryvore make a welcome return on Nov 24.

Blues has always been an important part of our programming and we’re delighted to welcome back Alvin Youngblood Hart on Mon 4 May in Chidham Village Hall.

Tickets for all these shows are selling extremely well, and, with the additional outlet of Harbour Records (in the Square, Emsworth), things are looking very positive for early 2020.

We must make a mention of the Comedy Night on Fri 6 Mar.  The last one, curated as always by Jeff Lane, was simply hilarious, and this one features the excellent Jan Jack, Dan Kielty, and Wil (sic). These nights are 99% heckle-free, 90% inoffensive, and 100% enjoyable, with cheap bar prices at Emsworth Sports' Club.

Lastly - We ran a very successful project called 'SunFest' in 2019.  The aim was to encourage you, and your family/friends to plant seeds which would mature into plants which were 'educational and bee-friendly'.  This year we're focusing on garden peas...

Best wishes,
Mark Ringwood-Millington
