Ales Beers and Carols 2013

Oh Little Town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lie.
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep,
The silent stars go by.
Less silent though the clink of glass,
In Walsall pubs this year.
As we sing carols and have fun,
While also drinking beer!

Ales Beers and Carols returns this year.

We’re singing in four different pubs (The Bowman is technically a Community Carol Service, but they’ve invited me down to play, so I may as well plug it too!) in an around Walsall over eight days. Carol sheets will be provided, and all are welcome provided you’re there to sing up and join in.

The Black Country Arms on Wednesday December 11th, at around eight o’clock.

The Bowman in Aldridge on Sunday December 15th from four to five in the afternoon.

The Avion in Aldridge on Tuesday December 17th, at around eight o’clock.

The Lazy Hill in Aldridge on Wednesday December 18th, at around eight o’clock.

I hope you can join us. It’s not a difficult concept to grasp, but great fun to do. If you want further information, just post a comment and I’ll get back to you. All welcome.

The small print:

We’re singing carols and drinking beer. You may choose to drink wine or even go non-alcoholic, but the point is to have fun and sing carols. If you get really drunk and behave badly at the very least you’ll regret it in the morning, so please don’t. The pubs are letting us wander in and do some singing. They and their staff deserve the due respect. It’s Christmas. I’m not suggesting you tip heavily, but all that loose change will weigh you down otherwise, eh?
