The return of sessions to London?!

The return of sessions to London?!

Yesterday (Sunday 25 April 2021) Joe the box squeezer and I enjoyed playing a number of sets in the Kilkenny Tavern. London SW17 beer garden yesterday early evening (and some pints of lovely draught Guinness!). Hooray at last!!!!

Well done! I hope the Vulcan Arse Flute wasn’t too cold outdoors 🙂

Re: The return of sessions to London?!

That’s cool!

So patio dining is open now?

Here in Greater Los Angeles the patio dining has been going on for some time.

Now (depending on which County) indoor dining is happening too.

Re: The return of sessions to London?!

I never knew The Kilkenny had a garden. But then I’ve never been there any earlier than about 9pm before – and not since socialising became taboo.

Re: The return of sessions to London?!

The Kilkenny has an extensive but very cosy outside area at the back.

Re: The return of sessions to London?!

It’s in SW19 not SW17

Re: The return of sessions to London?!

Hing oan there’ll be more braw banter in London’s return to sessions. Hooray!

Creadur, I’m still trying to sort what it is like on those islands. It’s like here only it’s not like here…

Gromit’s correct. My mistake! Merton High Street not Tooting!

Re: The return of sessions to London?!

Is that a weekly? I’m not too far away, been keeping an eye out, but nothing so far in Tooting…. Could maybe trek all the way over a postcode!

Re: The return of sessions to London?!

In the olden times before the Great Covid of 2020, the Kilkenny was indeed a weekly event. In time s’poze it’ll reoccur.

Re: The return of sessions to London?!

Wow! What fun! I enjoyed my first outdoor session in a friend’s back garden last Friday: beautiful weather (even in Scotland!), great lunch, super tunes and great craic. Think it will be a while before we get back to the pubs, though.

Re: The return of sessions to London?!

I have been to two sessions in pub gardens over the last two weekend - however, this weekend’s has been cancelled due to the predicted weather!

Re: The return of sessions to London?!

My informant tells me that Con at the Blythe says he won’t have sessions for a few weeks yet. I think I can hang on a bit longer.
Anyway, congrats on the return of the craic to SW-wherever.
