Bramall Hall is a superb example of a 'Cheshire Black and White' timber framed manor house, with origins dating back to Medieval England. The property is lovingly cared for and presents the visitor with a marvellous historic record spanning six centuries.

Journeying through the house will give you a glimpse into Bramall Hall's fascinating history - beautiful Tudor rooms with spectacular plaster ceilings, a wonderful 16th century embroidered table carpet and wall paintings, plus many fine examples of architecture, furniture and paintings from different periods.

The house is set in 70 acres of beautiful parkland which has been landscaped in the style of Capability Brown. The park features two lakes, woodland walks, gardens and a toddlers play area.

As Hilary says "One of our fave venues, it's great that Christmas is up and running when we go there because it is LOVELY."

Entrance to the hall is from the side away from the car park.

Tickets include a warmed glass of mulled wine, a delicious minced pie and viewing the Hall decked out for Christmas, this year in Scandinavian style.

The Hall will open at 7pm and the concert starts at 8pm

Gordon is delighted to have the wonderful Carrie Martin as his special guest for this show.

For more information about Carrie, please visit her website http://www.carriemartin.co.uk

The Countess of Huntingdon's Hall was built as a chapel in 1773 by the very formidable Selina, Countess of Huntingdon. She was the Founder of the Calvinistic/Methodist group known as the Countess of Huntingdon' Connexion. The Chapel prospered until the second half of this century when congregations declined. The last service was held here in 1976.

By this time the building was in a deplorable state of repair, and there was a move to demolish it. However, a determined group of Worcester people fought to prevent this happening and, after ten years during which nearly £1 million was raised, the unique features of the chapel were repaired and restored to what you see today.

Many of the original pews have been retained with the addition of cushion, a number of which have needlework covers made by Worcestershire W.I. members. The pulpit was the centrepoint of the Chapel, and it's occupant was visible from all seats in the building. Nowadays the focus is on the stage, several feet lower, which is why there are seats in the gallery known to us as "listening seats". Graceful curved staircases lead up to the pulpit, which is flanked by two splendid eagle lecterns. The original communion rail is still in place beneath the stage. The organ is a very fine one, built by John Nicholson of Worcester in 1840.

Our beautiful Hall, the only one of its kind in the country, is a Grade II listed building. The poet John Betjeman visited it, and described it as being "unique and irreplaceable...a Georgian gem

Sharing Day

The Scout Hut

Mere Green Rd
Sutton Coldfield B75 5BW

PRICE: £100.00

On Saturday Feb 24th 2018 I'm holding another "Sharing Day" in Mere Green, Sutton Coldfield at the same venue as last time, at the rear of St James Hall opposite Sainsbury's.

My special guest is the wonderful guitarist/composer/teacher and transcriber for major guitar publications in the UK Tristan Seume. It has been my pleasure to have known Tris for many years and it has been a joy to share the stage with him on many occasions.

Like me, he is a devotee of FYLDE guitars and like me shares a close friendship with the company's founder Roger Bucknall. Such is their friendship that Roger fashioned a beautiful FYLDE banjo for Tris, probably one of the finest I have ever seen and is truly worthy of his outstanding abilities on this instrument. But it is his virtuoso guitar playing that truly sets him apart from other players of his generation. I have always likened him to a young John Renbourn in terms of his touch and complex guitar instrumentals.

The format for the day will be a brief selection of tunes from yours truly followed by a detailed look at our chosen piece for the day, a track from my new album "This Fathers Love". There will be the usual Q&A on any related guitar subject be it technique, performance, composition, what have you. Also throughout the afternoon there will the chance to "share" YOUR playing with us.

giltrap 5022


Tristan will join in the afternoon to play us some of his stunning compositions and answer any of your questions, but the main thrust will be his playing. I hope he brings his banjo with him as well as his collection of FYLDE'S!

Tea, coffee and biscuits are available throughout the day, and our local Sainsbury's is just opposite for your luncheon needs.

Cost for the day is £100
