Posted:Well, in addition to Happy Thursdays there is now going to be a new weekly meeting in Guildford.



Every Sunday, from 2 - 6pm in the Stoke Pub back room.



Happy Thursdays are still going to run and will be the "fire night" or, if it's raining, the "pub night" wink

The Sunday Sessions are more practise orientated- as it's difficult to practise and impossible to teach/learn in the dark and not particularly fun in the rain smile

The plan is to have fairly regular workshops teaching everything from the basics to the not-so-basics - so any volunteer teachers, step forward biggrin



We're looking for as much variety as possible inside, hopefully will get some jugglers (ewwwww wink ), devil-stickers, diaboloists etc. down.



Entrance fee is 3 which covers renting the back-room.



The first one will be Sunday, November the 7th and then hopefully it will be every week. At the moment, I'm thinking this might just be for the Autumn-Winter period, but if it's popular (and the pub are fine with it) it could stay smile



Hope to see some of you there smile

Posted:From Egham?

Probably driving, but I don't know too much about that sort of thing...

Otherwise, get the train to guildford. exit the station and turn right. go under the subway. keep walking round the big building, until you see the canal. Walk along the canal until you come to a pub called the white house. walk down the narrow road next to it until you get to a carpark and the brittania pub. on the canal side of the car park there is a bridge. Cross it, and look to your right for spinners. biggrin

OK, bringing this thread back from the dead!! a.k.a. Page 6 of Events and Gatherings... Super Sundays at the Stoke are being resumed, as of this Sunday (4/12/05). beerchug

4pm start, so come one, come all. It's going to be a measly 3 pounds a head again for the use of the room. And rumour has it they've even put Christmas decorations up, just for us! wink

it's in the back room of the stoke pub by the car park. the stoke pub is the one by the railway bridge on the way out to guildford college from town. it's really easy to find if you just head out of town from rsvp/ avatar comics/ the road near time nightclub, where north street meets the high street. you can always just gimmie a call if you get lost along the way...

strugz an frodo, we'll be expecting a visit as soon as your ready, would be wicked to see you both! hug
