Sadly our guests for November; 3 November 2016, Sara Grey & Kieron Means; have had to cancel their UK tour as Sara has been unwell and is convalescing.

I now have our replacement guests and they are JOHN & DI CULLEN.  John and Di formerly  ran The Beacon, both the Pub/Hotel and the fornightly Monday Beacon Folk ClubSince retiring they have been down to see us at FATD and went down very well.  Consequently they went on my list of potential bookings and they have now very kindly stepped in at short notice to fill our November guest spot.

  More detail
