Calendar and Events

From the beginning of 2024 we are growing a second session in Bradford on Avon! As well as the session at the Dandy Lion on alternate Mondays we will have a session on alternate Tuesdays at the Canal Tavern. Thus there will be a pub session every week, alternating pubs and days, is that clear? 🙂 . Both sessions will start at 7.30 and continue to 10pm or thereabouts.

Since the pandemic we have also been running Zoom sessions on every other Monday. These will contine, alternating weeks with the Canal Tavern session (and the day before the Dandy Lion session. We keep these sessions going to maintain continuity and friendship. We have visitors to these sessions from as far away as Madeira and Germany and the sessions have their own enjoyable flavour. If you are interested in the Zoom sessions then please phone me on 01225 864706.

Here is a list of dates for the live sessions, in case you forget which week we’re in.

The sessions start at 7.30 pm and end at 10 pm.

We are also involved in running some sessions at festivals. These sessions are run in the name of the BoA sessions, a lot of people from the sessions turn up and, judging by previous experience, a good time is had by all. The sessions are at Priddy and (in previous years) Bath Folk Festivals, but we’re open to offers for others.

We have a mailing list for session regulars so if there is a cancellation (rare, but it did happen once) we can let everyone know quickly. If you want to be on it just let me know your email address at a session.
