Check us out in the gig guide and view the photo- we're the venue/wine bar that has all the ivy going on lol.


Our Guest Poet

Proper Wigan, the Tudor’s own  Joy France!

Humour and warmth permeate, local dialect has been heard and toast has been known to seduce!  Difficult, sometimes darker subjects from home and abroad may also feature on the menu.  Verse primarily concerned with emotional connections can be savoured and Joy might serve up her award winning poem (previously performed at this very venue)…not to be missed!    


Our Guest Musician  

Dave 'bass-baritone' Gilbey

Dave trained classically before coming to sing folk songs.  These days he applies his rich baritone voice to classics, Irish and English folk songs, poems set to music etc.  For me though his voice really shines when he performs American spiritual songs- wonderful.    


Open mic poetry -

A couple of first come first served musician slots

Open mic 'Notable poem prize'
