"Great singing club" The Wilson Family.
The Horse & Trumpet is a lovely CAMRA listed pub, located in Sileby, Leicestershire. It is traditional in style with lots of nooks and crannies and some great beers. Clive, the landlord has made the club feel very welcome. The pub is one of a small, extremely well kept group of hostelries owned by the Steamin‘ Billy Brewing Co.. N.B. The Horse & Trumpet's car park is fairly small; check the map for alternative parking.
Singarounds and Guest NightsSingarounds and guest nights start at 8.00pm (Doors open at 7:30). Singarounds are the very essence of what the club is about and are on the 2nd Monday of each month throughout the year (check the website for the January date if the 2nd Monday is Plough Monday). There is no formal entry charge, but a voluntary contribution of just £1 to help us offset our running costs would be most welcome. Guest night charges vary.
Traditional English Music Sessions and WorkshopsThe music sessions take place from 9.00pm. The music has a bias towards the English tradition but apart from that the format is reasonably free. The sessions are open to any musician who enjoys playing traditional music, there is no entrance fee and the pub keeps a good cellar with real ales always available. So what are you waiting for? Come and join us.
The musicians workshops take place from 7.30pm until 9.00pm. The music is taken at a steady pace and they are open to anyone who has mastered the rudiments of their instrument and has an interest in English Folk music. They regularly attract an ensemble of melodeons, English / Anglo concertinas, accordions, fiddles, whistles, recorders, mandolins and guitars. There is no formal entry charge but a voluntary contribution of just £1 to help us offset our running costs is always appreciated.
