What a night we had last Saturday – The Green Rock River Band were something else!
To say ‘we had a great time on Saturday night’… is a total understatement.
The Green Rock River Band were simply ace; really entertaining, fun, heartfelt and dance-able!
It looks like we raised somewhere in the region of £650 for The David Nott Foundation too.
A great night for a worthy cause = one special event.
Looking forward to next year chaps!
We’ve a total tap takeover at the Dolphin & Anchor in Chichester from 12th until 17th December.
Eleven of our lovely ales will feature, with six on the pumps at any one time.
And at £2.49 a pint, it’d be rude not to!
Doors open at 7.30pm.
Anouska – a voice of total beauty – opens the evening and plays from 8pm.
The Green Rock River Band take to the floor at 9pm.
Expect a hybrid of old-time sounds; upbeat music-hall, Americana, folk tradition and jazz.
We’re really looking forward to seeing everyone on the evening.
We’ll be supporting the David Nott Foundation, so please bring your spare change (& notes!) along.
There will also be band CDs and merchandise on sale.
The British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) which represents larger family, regional and global brewers, as well as pub companies, has written to the Chancellor calling for an urgent Treasury-led review of ‘Small Breweries Relief’.
The BBPA has been unsuccessfully calling for such a review for some time, but has submitted considerably more detail and evidence this time in support of its case ahead of the Chancellor’s autumn statement on 23rd November.
SIBA has written to the Chancellor in response to the BBPA submission and does NOT support the call for a Treasury-led review. It’s urging the Chancellor to maintain the status quo while the industry considers its enhancement…
