Still going strong, every Wednesday evening. Always a great evening of good tunes!

Re: The Jolly Brewer

The new year’s day session will be a hair-of-the-dog session starting at the earlier time of 4m.

After that, it’s back to the usual 8:30pm start time every Wednesday.

Re: The Jolly Brewer

No session tonight or for the next while as long as we’re social distancing.

Re: The Jolly Brewer

The plan is that sessions will start up again on Wednesday, September 22nd.

Re: The Jolly Brewer

Sessions aren’t starting up on September 22nd after all—they need more time to finish their renovations, I think. Looks like it’ll be the end of the month.

Re: The Jolly Brewer

The Jolly Brewer has reopened after completing its refurbishment. Wednesday night sessions are resuming, starting from tomorrow, October 27th.

Start time is usually 8:30pm.

Re: The Jolly Brewer

Visited on Nov 10th, cracking session, lovely people, great music and to put the icing on the cake, met Jeremy as well. Who could want a better evening out?

Re: The Jolly Brewer

Note that next week this session will be on Thursday instead of Wednesday. That way it falls on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th. After that, it’s back to every Wednesday.

Re: The Jolly Brewer

We’re starting this session at 8pm now instead of 8:30pm.

There’s been a few times where we’ve had to stop early (10pm or 10:30pm) because of complaints from a neighbour so we figured we’d start earlier to make sure we get plenty of tunes in.

Re: The Jolly Brewer

Still going strong! First session of the new year tonight from 8pm to 10pm.

Re: The Jolly Brewer
