The first Jazz Aroma jam session will be on Friday 1st February for all you jazz lovers. If you want to join, sing, play, just come along - or just come along and listen. It will be held in the upstairs room at the Kings Head and Bell on the first Friday of every month going forward so you can make it a regular date in your diary too if you wish. It's free, and no booking required with the pub, but do please RSVP in here so we know who is going. We'll meet upstairs from 7.30pm - just look out for me as I will bag a table for approximately the right number or as many as possible.
Hi everyone. You are cordially invited to join us at the Bear and Ragged Staff Saturday 9th February for drinks from 8.00. The Bear & Ragged Staff in Cumnor is a world away from the Newbury & Swindon roads that stream past only a mile from its door. The heart of the pub is a glorious Tudor beauty. Ancient fireplaces, flagstone floors and mullioned windows with carved lintels, make the bar one of the finest anywhere. A comfortable eatery, conservatory and South-facing terrace provide spaces for every mood . Come and meet us in the bar to the right of the front entrance, which has been reserved for our use. I will be there to meet and greet you. It will be lovely to welcome some of you new members. A chance for you to meet fellow new people and us older inmates! Cant wait excited about this venue. It opens up onto a garden area, is nice and cool in this weather, and a nice large area we can spread ourselves out in. There is a large car park, and the food there is very nice, so if you want to come earlier and grab yourself a bite to eat? Post on meet up if you want to eat and the time and see who would like to join you. Last time some of us migrated to the Conservatory which worked well, all in all it is a delightful pub.
Fancy celebrating the incoming Year of the Pig, Chinese style? At the New Dancing Dragon in Summertown there's not only a Chinese feast lined up but a lion dance display too! The lion dance display is at 6pm and then we'll eat afterwards, so I suggest we all arrive for about 5.30pm to get drinks and be seated. The cost is £30 per head, with a £10 deposit per head payable on RSVPing as I have to confirm numbers and pay over the deposit in the next week to 10 days to ensure our tables. When you RSVP, please take note of the bank account details and pay your deposit (times the number of people you are RSVPing for - guests welcome) with your name as the reference. The menu is as per the restaurant's website - set menu or individual choices. The restaurant website is this: http://newdancingdragon.co.uk/ I'm setting the RSVP deadline to Friday 25th January but if we reach 20 before then I will close RSVPs and confirm numbers then to ensure we don't lose the provisional booking.
