Wednesday July 13th THE LONGEST JOHNS


First time to Hambledon for The Longest Johns who come highly recommended by regulars who have seen them elsewhere. The Longest Johns is a four-man, a Capella folk music band from Bristol. Born out of a mutual love of traditional folk songs and shanties this group features both time-honoured songs and new material.

Summer brings great artists to Hambledon for July and September while in August we have our summer “Anything Goes” session. Our performer season also features a great line-up for the rest of the year.

Wednesday August 10th - Informal ‘Anything Goes’ Session

This is the night for anyone to show off their talent, try out a new song or get the pub singing along. Anything goes – music, song, a poem, story or even a jig – all welcome to join in or just sit back and listen. FREE ADMISSION – The August session will be held in The Vine Pub (next to Youth Hut – see below for address).

Wednesday September 14th - MICK RYAN and PAUL DOWNES
