Scribal Gathering is back at The Bull in Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes, on Tuesday 8th May for another shining showcase of music and poetry, despite considerable efforts to find a better venue in time for the gig. Until we do we're stuck where we are, so stop asking.
May is the month for gathering. Don't try gathering nuts though - there aren't any at this time of year. And if the bushes have started producing nuts randomly out of season due to erratic meteorological conditions brought about by mad scientists and sinister governments (and definitely not by right-on household appliances like smoothie-makers and iPads), any aberrent produce would have been washed away in the deluge of floodwater caused by the recent drought sarcasm on Facebook. There is, apparently, a drought, and yet it seems to be raining. Fifty million people like commenting on this.
So gather ye rosebuds while ye may, and gather together to make merry in the spirit of music and poetry, with special guest performers Steve Allen, long-time Scribal Gathering regular making his long-overdue headline appearance, and Morad and Dave, bringing their distinctive rhythmic musical combo and taking hits from the bongos. There is also the open-minded, open-fronted, open-heart open mic, welcoming performers of any style, genre or level of ineptitude to share whatever they choose to bring and invoke the spirit of gathering. Where else are you going to go?
Where: The Bull Hotel, High Street, Sony Stratford, Milton Keynes, MK11 1AQ.
When: Tuesday 8th May. Second Tuesday of the month. Always the second Tuesday.
How: Sign up for open mic on the night. Arrive early to avoid disappointment, or just turn up near the end and talk loudly at the back.
