Fifteen comments

The Mount

Takes place every first and third Sunday in the month at present. Also the fifth if there is one! 8.30pm start at latest. The second Sunday we go to The Black Bull Gt Eccleston and the fourth to The Grapes St Michaels - see those entries.

Moved from The Strawberry Gardens from 1 March 2015. Now in twelfth year. See Strawberry Gardens entry for full details and click on my comments for full history.


The Mount is on the corner of The Esplanade and Promenade Road. NOT where shown on map, but close!

Change of venue for alternative weeks

The second Sunday of the month will be at Shillaylees (sic!) Bar, Wood Street, St Annes, Lytham St Annes till further notice. See separate entry
Also occasionally we fit in a visit to The Running Pump at Catforth when we should be at The Mount.
Unfortunately this can’t be tied to a certain Sunday in the month at present. So best ring me on 01253772979 or email on if thinking of travelling to a Mount session!
The next one at The Running Pump is scheduled for 1 Nov.

Removal of The Grapes as “tour venue”

The session will be back at The Mount on the fourth Sunday as from Nov.

Therefore the only regular Sunday to be missed is the second Sunday in the month when we will be at Shillaylees till further notice (see link above). We will still be at The Running Pump on 1 Nov. Therefore Nov schedule is : 1 Nov The Running Pump Catforth, 8 Nov Shillaylees, 15,22,29 Nov The Mount

Change of schedule

The Running Pump Catforth Rd Catforth Nr Preston PR4 0HH (see separate entry) has now agreed a regular night on the LAST Sunday in the month. Therefore The Mount session will be on the first and third Sunday (and also the fourth Sunday if five Sundays in he month) - I hope this is clear!

Change of schedule to once a month

The landlord has decided that he wants us only once a month. This is likely to be the third Sunday in the month but has yet to be confirmed. The next session is likely to be on the 17th Jan or possibly the 24th. There is also the possibility of yet another move! So watch this space.

Change of schedule to third Sunday in month confirmed

As above. The next session at The Mount will be 17th Jan providing there will be enough core players.
(Next week 10th we are at Shillaylee bar St Annes). Also The Steamer pub in Fleetwood is willing for us to turn up at weeks in between. Watch this space!

Other venues for other weeks

As The Running Pump is closed till further notice, the second AND fourth Sundays will be at The Shillaylee Bar, St Annes (see separate entry - link above) and the first and fifth Sundays will be at The Steamer, Queens Terrace, Fleetwood (see separate entry).

Re: Move to The Steamer

Moved to The Steamer till further notice as The Mount being refurbed. Will probably not go back.
All Fleetwood sessions now at The Steamer ie First, Third, and Fifth (if there is one) Sunday in month

The Mount

First Sunday of the month and also the fifth if there is one. Small mixed session, mostly Irish tunes and some songs. Good standard. Established 16 years ago but now just moved from The Steamer Fleetwood. We tour round the Fylde. On second Sunday we are at The Shillaylee bar St Annes, on third Sunday The Running Pump Catforth, and fourth Sunday The Black Bull Great Eccleston.

See previous entry for The Mount and separate entries for venues above for full history.
