The Barnfield music club will be back on Friday February 4th at new temporary premises at the Café Hub in Heavitree Park, Whipton Lane, EX1 3DS
We will be starting at a new earlier time of 7 pm as we have to finish at 9.45 pm to clear the building by 10 pm. There are tea & coffee making facilities, and please feel free to bring your own drinks, alcoholic or soft. We do need your continued, valued support to keep our lovely music club going. Entrance including draw is still £3 to cover room hire costs.
John Davies will be hosting this month.
Current Covid regulations require that Masks are worn except when performing or eating/drinking.
If you have a professional stage microphone please bring it with you for your personal use.
We will be swapping and cleaning mics/pop shields as required.
The venue require that all mains powered equipment, leads, and extension cables have a current PAT test Pass.
We have just learned
that the Theatre will be
from January to May
We are endeavouring to
find an alternative venu,
and will keep you updated here.
The Theatre is now under new management which will secure its future for many years to come. There are however some changes to the terms of our hire of the Clifford Room. These include a significant increase in the hire fee, and an earlier end time. We are not able to absorb the price increase, so from August 2021 the contribution asked from attendees will be £3 (applies to all people attending) and includes a raffle ticket. This is inline with many other clubs, and given the facilities the Club and Theatre provide, we consider it reasonable.
The New start time will be 7:15pm, doors open at 7:00pm, and ending at 10:00pm.
At the end of the evening we would ask everyone to please vacate the Clifford Room promptly, taking their instruments with them, this will enable us to pack up and clear the room by the end of our hire period. The foyer is available if you wish to talk to friends, or wait for transport.
As the theatre is now under new management, they are keen to hold more music events. So if any performers that have played at the club would like to hire the Clifford Suite for a concert/cd launch etc, contact Barnfield Music Club in the first instance.
The club is able to offer support to artists wishing to promote their own concert in the Clifford Room of the Barnfield Theatre. Artists choose their admission charge and the tickets are sold through the box office with the usual deduction for the room hire and admin charges. The club is able to publicise any concert on club nights, and the Theatre can offer assistance with publicity with sufficient notice. We can also offer our Bose P/A system with sound engineer, for a reasonable additional charge.
A note for any performers that would like to sing or play in the bar area of the Barnfield Theatre, during early evenings, (it beats busking in the cold!!) Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the theatre and ask for Enya, and she will tell you what times they have available.
The club would like to hear from anyone who may be interested in joining our team, to help set up, help to run the evenings, and have the opportunity to learn to put together & operate the sound system. In the first instance contact Verity for more info. 07722 244952
