I spoke with the new owners of the Miners Standard and they are more than happy for us to take over the dinning room on Saturday evening for a session(tables reserved for a group dinner too). We are also welcome on the Friday evening should there be any early arrivals.
Lunches will be available on Saturday and we can order in advance on the day. The chef has stayed with the pub and the menu is just about the same so expect decent pub grub and reasonable prices.

As always, please get in touch if you want to come along or have any questions.

Excellent news, Simon! (:)
It was a great session last year, as was the whole weekend (apart from poor Mel's car :'().
Looking forward to it!

Yep, camp site is open but please give the pub a bell to book. Will be good to see you again.
Thanks to those that have offered to bring spare boxes.

Hello! It's not too long to go now until the 3rd Derbyshire Melodeon Playgroup. I have taken over the reins of organisations temporarily whilst Simon relocates himself and his family.

I was looking down the list and notice there are no absolute beginners signed up! We have the very talented and patient Vicky Cooper with us to lead the AB sessions - so don't be shy! Come and meet other fellow beginners and have a go at learning something new and getting those muddles sorted out.

There are also plenty of spaces in my beginners and Steve Dumpleton's improvers groups.

And don't forget you can make a weekend out of it by attending my mixed ability workshop Thinking Outside The Box on Sunday 21st October (hopefully this year without any car fires!!). There are only 5 places remaining so get your place saved soon! More info: https://bit.ly/2Q1BKN4

If you would like to attend either event, or would like more information send me an email (as I don't check here very often!): workshops@melbiggsmusic.co.uk

The Absolute Beginners don't even need to own a box. Spare boxes will be available. What a nice way to start to fall in love with this instrument and make lots of new friends at the same time.

Very good point! Thanks for pointing that out!

I've booked a B&B in Winster for both Friday and Saturday nights. Is anyone else planning to come along to the Miners Standard on Friday evening for a meal and/or some social squeezing?
