There is a folk club in Billingshurst at the Evershed Arts Centre, based at the Billingshurst Unitarian Chapel.
Stuart and Jan Coupe, who operate said organisation, have been welcome visitors to CFC a few times in recent months, and Stuart is a fine performer. Jan is lovely.
They have invited us to join them for a May-time celebration on Saturday 4th May for the evening.
To this end we have booked corporate transport on a 24-seat coach to make the return trip from Chichester.
This coach will depart from the Market Car Park in Chichester at 1800 hours, and return leaving Billingshurst at 23.00 hours.
The cost of that transport, subsidised by our club, will be £6.00 per head. (Cash only, in advance. Please see Colin during an evening at the club.)
What will we do?
Make and enjoy music and share good company, of course.
In addition, Jane R. has generously volunteered to provide some finger food for us to enjoy during the interval. We are invited to take cake to share.
Naturally, there are probably people for whom that corporate transport might be inconvenient or uneconomic. You could choose to make way independently to Billingshurst. That’s fine. The post code is RH14 9Q, and there is a public car park near Billingsgurst Library, post code RH14 9JZ.
If you park at the library, walk uphill to find Lakers Meadow on your left. Follow that road downhill and you’ll find the Unitarian Chapel on your left.
No, Berry, you may not bring your grand piano!
Addendum, 22nd March.

It's true. Jan is as lovely as Colin makes out! Being married to her is just great. Being married to her and inviting fine people to Evershed Arts to perform music is great too.
We really look forward to welcoming as many from CFC as are able and willing to come over on May 4th. And oh yes, we do have a piano but feel free to bring your own if you like.
