Live Music Social

Friday 22nd September 7.30 pm 
@ International Society, Oxford Road
£3 members
£5 non-members

Organized for you by British friends of the International Society, this is an opportunity to meet both other members and local people and enjoy a relaxed and enjoyable evening of live ‘folk’ music! We’ll encourage you to join in with our songs, which will deepen your knowledge of our culture and history.  More party than concert, these are always great evenings and a good opportunity to make new friends. Tickets include refreshments.

We'd like to hear your music too, so if you can play an instrument or sing, whatever your level, here is your chance to perform for a friendly and appreciative audience. Please use the contact form below if you're interested in getting involved or have any questions.
