Shenanigans is an Irish music duo comprising Alan on vocals and guitar and Steve on fiddle. They will give you a lively evening of your favourite traditional Irish songs, jigs and reels.
Alan is locally based and will be known to many in the Club. He is an excellent vocalist, singing with feeling, straight from the heart.
Steve is one of best fiddle players in the North West of England, playing with great enthusiasm, sensitivity, and panache.

To hear samples of their performance visit their website at

Tickets are available from the Club (ask at the bar) or from George Street Bookshop. You can also book at Wegottickets (they charge a small commission).

Lancashire Night

starting at 7.30

As usual, we will interpret ‘Lancashire’ to include Derbyshire, and even Yorkshire if necessary. Songs, tunes, poems, monologues – whatever you want to bring along – or you can just sit back and enjoy it (joining in the choruses I hope). And food too – Lancashire hotpot, and veggie alternative.  This is a free event; there will be a small charge for the food, and donations are welcome.

We hope to make this a 'blended' event in which you can join by Zoom if you can't get to the Club. To get the link send an email to jeremy Dale
