Practical Stuff

We are an open mic club meeting every Tuesday at the British Oak pub in Old Dover Road, Blackheath. We are more of an acoustic than a pure folk club. Recent sessions have included virtually every musical genre.

We have a 300 watt Yamaha PA system with 2 mics and 4 other inputs. If more inputs are needed a Behringer mixer can be made available with prior notice. The space is relatively limited and a four-piece band is probably the optimum.

We operate a first come-first served system. There are 10 minutes/2 song slots. It is best to arrive by 8pm to avoid disappointment and ask for Lynne. We only have one rule we ask performers to respect: our excellent host, Peter, prefers people not to publicise gigs in other pubs, which seems fair enough to us.

22nd December - Christmas Special with Bruise!

We're having a Christmas party on Tuesday the 22nd, and our old friends Bruise are joining us for a couple of sets. There should be floor spots too (but get there early to get on the list!). There are even rumours of a buffet....

Beer & Carols at the Oak: Thursday 17th Dec

The British Oak is having an evening of Carols on Thursday 17th of December, and there will be a few Club regulars there to help out and hopefully perform. Should be a good night.


The Club will be carrying on right through the Christmas period. Same place, same time.
