Wymondham Dell Music!

Following the huge success of our 5 music/dance evenings so far I can report there will be a full programme for the rest of 2023 and bookings already being made for 2024! I will be bringing in more different artistes as time goes on and I would emphasise that the music is not solely country/line dance music, in fact all the events so far have contained far more different genres such as 50s and 60s, rock and roll and popular dance music; we are not trying to become a country music venue! Our ability to continue with these events relies on you, the club members, supporting them. Yes, we do have a good following from non members, without whom we wouldn’t cover our costs, but we would dearly like to see more club members attend. The money raised goes to the club and it means the club is open more often on a Saturday evening for those who just want to come along for a drink. I repeat my oft used promotion statement ‘where else can you go on a Saturday night to enjoy cheap drinks and quality live music?’. So, to those who have not been along to one of the events, give it a go!

Forthcoming Music Nights:

Saturday April 1st - Kevin Barry
Saturday June 3rd - Julie Dawn
Saturday July 1st - Rick Storm (Private booking but club members are welcome and I will have tickets for sale)
Saturday August 5th - Kevin Barry
Friday October 13th - Bob Keeley
Saturday December 16th - Kevin Barry (Christmas Party)

2024 so far!

Saturday April 6th - Bob Keeley

More to follow!
