Gerry Colvin At Rosslyn Court, Kent

April 24 @ 7:30 pm BST


We celebrate St Patrick’s day. In Scotland they acknowledge St Andrew’s day. In Wales they nod towards St David’s day. And in England? …. St George’s day is on April 23 and universally ignored. We thought that we should do something about that and Gerry Colvin is coming along on the 25th to celebrate the best ideals of being English….welcoming, honesty, respect, compassion, courage, fair play, humour. Gerry is well known for his support for the oppressed, he has played many benefit concerts in this area. Tonight he will be celebrating traditional and contemporary English songs and music with the help of a few friends. Come along and celebrate with us! Please book in advance or let me know you are coming (07902140248 Morag.)
It’s also Shakespeare’s birthday. And death day! So Shakespeare may also make an appearance!
This is no jingoistic event- You know it’s going to be a great evening – in the safe hands of Gerry Colvin!
There will be St George appropriate food for you so tickets for this event are a little more than usual. (Veggie/vegan/GF can be available -please let us know in advance please)

Rosslyn Court
Expect a small, seated, friendly, quirky, listening venue with a heart – we have a tiny bar selling beer, wine, cider and hot and cold drinks -nibbly stuff and always a cake. The venue is accessible, on one level. You will be seated at tables or in rows, according to numbers in the audience.
The first hour of concerts is livestreamed on YouTube. You can watch it any time after 7.30 on the night of the concert via the Rosslyn Court Website. There is an exclusive second set for the audience in the room, including a Q&A with the performers. We ask you to make a donation when you watch the livestream to help us to continue this service.
In buying a ticket you are entered for the Rosslyn Court raffle. You may win a CD …or a “Who Gives A Crap” emergency toilet roll! WGAC donate half their profits to water charities and are plastic free. People who donate or engage with the live chat during the concert are also entered into the raffle.
There is usually a floor singer and often a 2-minute community slot informing us of what happens locally. The second half starts with a Q&A and is not livestreamed. If you think of something you want to know more about in the first half, just ask! Sometimes there is another floor song.
The concerts usually finish before 10.
If you want to view the livestream after midnight of the concert date then go to the livestream option on the website where all the old livestreams live.
Please ring for more details, 07902140248
See you soon
