On 10th. November we lost Sandra Goddard, a dear friend and fine singer. Sandra was a founder member of this club and established many of its guiding principles, especially a love of genuine traditional music and the belief that everyone should have the chance to sing or play if they wish.

On Saturday 18 July from 6:00 - 11:00 p.m. we will have a celebration for Sandra at the club.
Free entry with buffet. Collection for Action Aid.

Everyone welcome. Bring songs & tunes that Sandra sang or liked, & pictures & anecdotes of her. There will be a couple of hours to chat & eat before the music starts in earnest.


If you would like to be put on our mailing list to receive our newsletters about forthcoming events, email Valmai Goodyear.
If you have a particular interest (song, instrumental, specific instrument) let us know so we can tell you about workshops that might suit you.

The Lewes Favourites tune book is now available.
