Last weekend was a busy one at the Club. A sell-out bingo and curry evening, hosted by yours truly. Well, we had some winners, quite a lot of heckling and some terrible prizes. And it was SO much fun we’re going to do it all over again in June. Looks like the popular demand was for a summer BBQ. We’ll work on the details. For now? Please reserve the date in your diary… Friday 9th June! More details soon.
Then on Sunday we hosted two sell-out Frinton Jazz Club gigs. To amazing audience acclaim, Derek Nash and his wonderful band were off the chart amazing! They’ll be back at the Club on Sunday June 11th from 1.30pm with jazz singer sensation Jo Harrop and the Chris Ingham Quartet. Please do book early. These events sell out and you don’t want to miss the opportunity to hear and see world class musicians perform at such close quarters. Details HERE.
At the beginning of April, we’ll have to revise our bar prices. Why not take advantage of the amazing value before this happens? And yes, of course we’ll ensure any gains from the Budget feed through… but that drop in Duty for ale doesn’t occur until August. But we still have some of the keenest prices for beers, spirits, wines and soft drinks in the area! Cheers (please drink responsibly yada yada).
