Each month we host guest performers of national and international renown. Regular Singers, Musicians & Guest nights are held on the first & third Thursday of each month. Everyone is welcome to come along to sing and play.
Our venue is THE ASHINGTON CRICKET CLUB, Langwell Crescent, Ashington, Northumberland, NE63 8AB.
"Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue... Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything... Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet." (attributed to Plato)
