Our next annual gathering to cheer us during the short days of winter will be at a new venue and slightly later in the year than previously held.
On Saturday 2nd February 2019 we will be meeting in the old Sussex barn attached to the English Martyrs Church in Goring (map link), on the corner of Goring Way and Compton Avenue. Postcode: BN12 4UE.
There is limited parking at the church, but no restrictions in the nearby residential roads. The venue is also near to the route and stops of the 700 Coastliner bus service and not far from Goring-by-Sea railway station.
The fun will begin at 7.30pm – but please note – due to an early evening service in the adjacent church please DO NOT ARRIVE BEFORE 7.00pm. Similarly, when leaving the party please be respectful of the surroundings and the quiet of the neighbouring area.
All South Downs Folk Singers, plus their family and friends, are very welcome to attend. Tickets are £2.50 each. Numbers are limited, so to avoid disappointment secure your place in advance by contacting Margo, via the South Downs Folk Singers email (or maybe see her at some local singing sessions).
Please bring food to share and your drinks of choice – and, as ever, your voices and a readiness to join in song!
Other contributions are also invited to add to the pleasure of the evening – your songs, readings, music and dance – any and all are welcome. (Please let Margo know if you’d like to contribute.)
One extra note this year – the Barn is a much-loved Grade II listed building, so special care must be taken not to damage the flint walls, wood pillars and beams or the flooring. We have been advised that shoes likely to mark the floor (especially high heels) are NOT welcome! (SDFS will be liable for the cost of any damage.) A reasonable request that we don’t expect will be hard to meet, or in any way limit the pleasure of the evening.
So we look forward to seeing you there – to salute the winter and look forward to the return of spring in 2019!
