Well, here we are at the end of another successful year for The City Folk Club, and we will shortly be able to mark 12 years of our survival.

  • Attendance ...

2015 saw a total of 1238 person-attendances including some welcome new faces.
That makes an average weekly attendance over 48 meetings of 15.18 participants, (not including stuffed rock-hoppers.)

And the attendance award goes to Mosley!

  • Performances ...
A total of 1238 pieces of something like music were performed including repetitions.
That's an average of 25.26 performances per meeting,
As it only costs you £2,00, that makes each one worth about 8 pence!
One wonders if we are not undervaluing our efforts as the quality of music just continues to astound.

  • Money ...
As an out-going Labour chancellor once declared ...

 "There is no money!"

Fear not; we are a not-for-profit organisation.
We achieved our aim of making no profit whatsoever, and Dogsbody did not enjoy an expensive Caribbean holiday at your expense!

  • Finally ...
Huge thanks to 

  • all of you who have come along, regularly and occasionally,
  • to all who take turns as MC,
  • to all our performers and listeners,
  • to everyone who helps clear up at the end of the evening
  • to the Friends of Guiding who make this comfortable venue available to us
  • and to those kind individuals who make sure that Dogsbody gets home safely!

So, enjoy a very happy New Year, and please keep coming along to appreciate great music and fun in good company.

Many of you will have received an email from Colin explaining Xmas & New Year closings etc and which also contains the following line:-

"It is our club … not mine, not yours … it’s OURS, and you help to keep it that way"

I would only add this:
Yes and OUR thanks is due to you Colin Turton for the selfless way you run each occasion.

Oh yes and of course Happy New Year and look forward to seeing you (all) again soon
