NB The Folk at the Drum Christmas Dinner is on to be notified, pre-booking is mandatory. The Club will not close in December 2017 .
Most Thursday evenings at The Drum are Singers' nights as we only have one guest a month. These start at 8-00pm and are opportunities for singers and acoustic instrumentalists (or both) to get together to perform their songs to an audience. Traditional and contemporary serious and comic folk songs predominate and are preferred but you may also hear music hall and blues. Also, some of the local performers perform their own songs so, if you are a budding singer/songwriter, come along to see how your songs sound to an audience. Some performers prefer to sing unaccompanied whilst others use a wide range of instruments including guitars, banjos, dulcimers, mandolins, recorders, whistles, harmonicas and various accordions. If you don't want to perform you can still enjoy these evenings by not only listening but also by joining in and singing along to choruses. This club is known as a friendly club and is well known for strong audience participation. By joining in you can keep your voice anonymous but add to the overall sound of the songs. So do not worry about how your voice sounds, loosen up your vocal chords and join in, perhaps even try some harmony!
The Drum Inn is noted for its excellent food and superlative ales, wine & other drinks. Often, club members and visitors have a meal in the pub prior to the start of the evening's entertainment and this is highly recommended. Once a year, at Christmas time, we have the Club Dinner (prior booking required) where we celebrate the festive season together with food, conversation and song.
