Spring is nearly here – the perfect way to celebrate is at the Hinckley ACT on the Leicestershire / Warwickshire border, for what promises to be another excellent open mike session featuring the usual eclectic mix of styles.
These informal concert evenings feature some of the finest acoustic folk, rock, jazz and blues musicians and singers in Leicestershire and across the East and West Midlands.
Non players are also most welcome to just come along, sit back, relax, have a drink and enjoy the music.
With special guests The Way Out – Chris Chambers and Autumn Dawn Leader.
About club nights
Come and enjoy some wonderful music and good company at our monthly open mike night – not to mention plenty of fine ale and a selection of wine… We always have a marvellous array of talent including the likes of Si Hayden, Nigel Beck, Bob Tibbetts, Chris Tobin and Brian Reed.
Please come along and join in!
The Hinckley ACT always provides the warmest of welcomes for guest and performers alike. So whether you want to enjoy listening to others (with pint in hand of course!), or would like to come along and share your music with us, we will be delighted to see you.
Many guest performers have become firm favourites at the club, returning time and again to present both original works and cover versions for the appreciative audience.
Book in advance!
Our club nights are becoming so popular with performers that it is a good idea to let us know in advance that you would like a slot for the evening. If you want to come and play, please email Pam London a few days in advance.
Booking and venue details
The entrance fee for the evening will be £3 for members and £4 for non-members. The event starts at 8 pm, with doors opening at 7.30 p.m.
