WychWood and Friends

We have been running our monthly Thursday evenings – WychWood and Friends – for several years now, initially at The Horns in Crondall and for the last year at The Lamb in Farnham.

This year WychWood and Friends is taking a summer break and we won’t be hosting our music evenings in July or August. We are also reviewing the format and pondering some different ideas. But, we will be back with exciting news for a re-launch WWAF’s in September.

Have a great summer everyone, love WychWood x

Lambfest 2016

Lambfest

Well that went well! The very first music festival at The Lamb in Farnham!

Live music non-stop throughout the day from lunchtime till late. Performers ranged from soloists to full bands, acoustic to electric, between them featuring a broad spectrum of musical styles with truly something for everyone. Too many good performers to single anyone out for special attention. Suffice it to say that each act was warmly received and gave an authentically representative rendition of their individual musical style.

The pub was buzzing with people coming and going throughout the day but retained a consistently appreciative audience for the whole event. Including several dogs! The rear courtyard provided a welcome breath of fresh air or smoking room as needed – and people were even spotted sneaking up to the secret roof terrace!

Thanks to everyone who came along both to perform and to support! Special big thanks to Brian for all his efforts on the sound desk.

Our next WychWood and Friends night is Thursday 16th June – hope to see you there!

First night at The Lamb!

10428412_344997412331022_6074389645335989579_oOn Thursday 21st April we ran our first WychWood and Friends night at The Lamb pub in Farnham.  This followed the sad closure of The Horns in Crondall which has been our musical “home” for the last few years.  We wish the landlords John and Judith all the very best as they move to pastures new.

Our new pasture is lovely!  The Lamb – a Shepherd and Neame pub – is a small but spacious pub with a warm welcoming ambience.  Landlord David Squier is a faithful supporter of live music and we areScreen Shot 2016-04-08 at 09.50.23 delighted to be part of his team in this respect.

Our first night did not disappoint!  We had an abundance of wonderful artistes who between them delivered a wide and eclectic variety of music.  Truly something for everyone!  We would not want to single anyone out here: suffice it to say that everyone stepped up and performed brilliantly!

Thanks to Simon and Sarah Williams for the photos 🙂

See the photo gallery below to get a flavour of the evening! Next events are WychWood and Friends on Thursday 19th May and Lambfest on Monday 30th May!
