English Music Sessions in Bath and Bradford on Avon

Welcome. This site is dedicated to two English music sessions that run on alternate weeks in Bath and Bradford on Avon. On this site we want to tell you about the sessions and what to expect at them. We also want to tell you about the music we play and provide resources for people who want to know more.

STOP PRESS – From Wednesday 9th of January the Bath session will be moving to its new home at the Packhorse, South Stoke on the southern edge of Bath. We’ve had several one-off sessions there and we know it’s going to be a happy home for the session. The details below will be updated once we have had our final session at the Royal Oak (which will also be our Christmas session) on the 12th December.

Here’s where we hold our sessions, two fine pubs:

Alternate Mondays in Bradford on Avon
The Swan Hotel, Bradford on Avon
1 Church St,
Bradford on Avon,
Wiltshire. BA15 1LN
Alternate Wednesdays in Bath
The Royal Oak, Bath
Lower Bristol Road,
Somerset, BA2 3BW

Both sessions start at 8.30 pm.

A note about parking: the Swan Hotel is right in the centre of BoA and has its own carpark behind the pub just off the bridge. Note there’s a numberplate recognition system in operation so make sure you register your car at the bar on arrival.

For the Royal Oak, everyone usually parks in the old Bath Press car park nearby. Note that there are two Royal Oaks in Bath, ours is the one on the Lower Bristol Road near the Windsor bridge.

If you’re a musician, come and join in. If you just want to listen, you’re welcome as well. If you are just starting then we hope the material on this site will help.
