August in the Café – Change in line up24 July 2019
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances FB Pocket Orchestra are now no longer able to join us for their Monday slot as part of August in the Café.
We still have a variety of other performances on Saturdays in August and lots going on in the café throughout the week.
Join us on Tuesdays for a new seasonal cheesecake to try each week, Cupcake decorating on Wednesdays, Cream Teas on Thursdays and Sundaes on Fridays.
We still have music performances in the form of Music Bites. Our popular Music Bites sessions are free informal performances in our café. Come along every Saturday in August to hear music from local performers whilst enjoying a delicious lunch or drink.
3 August: Pleasantville
Pleasantville return to The Spring with their blend of original material, country covers, blues standards and occasional off-the-wall surprises. Acoustic guitars, bass, harmonicas and vocals work together to create a sound that's easy on the ear and capable of getting any foot tapping, so if you like folk, rock, country and blues wrapped around a strong pop sensibility then you'll love Pleasantville.
