Join us for on Friday Evening for a traditional music session hosted by community collective Company of Horham Old School. Their format is session / concert party style. People take turns and sing/ play and also sing /play as a group together. The group has an informal feel of a group of friends spontaneously bursting into songs and music, much like an impromptu session.
The evening is MC’d by the ebullient Richard Cove.
We’ll also have storytelling for grown-ups, a cider bar and catering.
