*Important News Update *
WE HAVE A NEW HOME! OUR REGULAR 2nd MONDAY OF THE MONTH MEETINGS ARE NOW HELD AT
THE ARTYARD CAFÉ, THE DRIVE, OXFORD ROAD, ENSTONE, OX7 4NF
A DELIGHTFUL VENUE WITH AMPLE PARKING AND A BUS STOP NEARBY IF NEEDED.
It was with a degree of sadness that the club was unable to find a suitable venue within Chipping Norton itself and so had to look further afield to the local environs for a new, permanent home. However, as the saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining and we have been extremely lucky to have found a fantastic venue in ‘The Artyard Cafe’ which we have found works really well for the club, ticks all the boxes, and is only 5 minutes down the road from Chippy, in Enstone.
After a very successful Xmas Bash (hosted at very short notice by the landlord John Clarke), we found the informal layout, the acoustics and the general atmosphere of ‘The Artyard Cafe’ extremely conducive to the way the club operates. The club’s ’steering committee’ are doing their best to ensure that everything runs smoothly and, so far, things look as if they have taken a positive turn with an increase in numbers of attendees, both to contribute and just listen; old friends have returned, and it’s wonderful to see new faces now attending regularly. It’s also great to be able to welcome visitors to the Oxfordshire Cotswolds or those who are just passing through to join us. Everyone who attends helps make our club what it is.
With 2017’s arrival, Chipping Norton Folk and Acoustic Club welcomes a new beginning. However, we are not complacent and the continuing support of our members and visitors is crucial to the club’s prosperity. So, spread the word amongst your friends that we now have a new home and encourage them to join us. We look forward to making some great friends and fabulous music with you!
