WHAT'S ON AT MFC

 

We have a normal singers' night EVERY THURSDAY from 8.15 (unless otherwise advised, here and on Facebook). There is plenty of time for floor singers on ALL our nights, including guest nights.

 

 

April 19: TRADITIONAL NIGHT

 

For those who didn't want to go the Rock n' Pop Night. Great opportunity for English material in the days before St George's Day.

 

May 3: HUNGRYTOWN

 

Hungrytown is Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson, acclaimed singer/ songwriters all the way from Vermont, USA. They are touring the UK and asked if we could fit them in to do a spot on one of our occasional 'do it for the door' nights - we'll be delighted. See more at hungrytown.net

 

June 14: HAPPY BIRTHDAY JULIE FELIX

 

Unbelievably, the wonderful Julie will be 80 years old on this day and still playing (she is doing a celebration concert on the 17th at the Charing Cross Theatre), so let's raise a glass and sing a song to her.

 

July 5: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US

 

On July 3 it will be 15 years since John Mills held the first meeting of the club at the Crown in Minchinhampton. Around 750 meetings and 25,000 performances and still going strong - something to celebrate.
