Christmas Party at Pat James & Friends Club

Once again, a good turnout at our November club event at the Wensum Valley hotel.  Lisa Marie was, as expected a big hit with our crowd and we look forward to seeing her again at some future date. Not too much video from this as my camera decided to play up unknown to Mark who had agreed to take some footage.  Have got some video however and will put this on soon. Slightly blurred footage of Maggie and her new boyfriend Tym dancing to my rendition of "In this life". Thanks for taking part Tym. That raised a few laughs with your "Strictly" type dancing. Lots of fun. 

Next up of course is our Christmas Party on 16th December when we will be enjoying a 2 course carvery prior to the entertainment . Teas and coffees included at 5pm with donated Mince pies from Margaret and John from Kings Lynn.  Now around a hundred tickets sold. Space for just a few more at £15 each.

Our raffle will also take place towards the end of the evening with over 50 prizes plus the 3 Santas Hampers.  

Carvery will be served in the Fairway suite adjoining our usual room at 1pm.  Please take your seats at 12.30 pm latest if poss. Tables will then be called up.

Special night at Ormesby St Michael Village Hall

Back at Ormesby St Michael Village Hall after a quite a while was a lovely experience.  Rita, Evelyn and

 June work so hard to keep this very popular music club giong. For just £5 visitors were treated to a lovely warm environment with a bar and lots of like minded friends and entry included a 2 course buffet. On top of that the folks had some entertainment until about 11pm.  A decent raffle as well added to the evening.   A couple of friends of mine also turned up, Brian and Cindy, both now into their Eighties are to be married this coming Saturday and everyone was delighted for them. Performed a Westlife song for them with just the right lyrics. In this life, (I was loved by you).   Wish them both well.  


Pat James & Friends Christmas Party Tickets

Coming up Sunday November 25th is our last event before our Christmas Party on December 16th at the Wensum Valley Hotel in Norwich.

For our regular club supporters, this is your last chance to order your Christmas tickets at the club rate of only £12.00 each.   A special treat this year after last years disappointing buffet is our decision to include a carvery prior to our entertainment .   Thanks to owner Bridgette who was intent on making amends for last Christmas, this will be a two course carvery served in the adjoining suite to our usual room.  Teas and coffees will also be included and probably Maggies mince pies later on during the break.  Together with entertainment from Bobby Graham, Gordon James and myself, I think you will agree this is an excellent deal for those of you who have,  despite much competition from other music clubs, continued to come along each month to enjoy both our local acts and recently some not so local.  

For those who are not club regulars who wish to come along to enjoy that 2 course carvery and the music, please get in touch.   We will be pleased to see any new faces to the club but please be aware, the price per ticket will then be £15 .

Looking forward to seeing and hearing the lovely Lisa Marie on 25th November 

Coming up

This coming Saturday I will be returning to Ormesby St Michael Village Hall

Its a 7.30pm start, along Main Road  Ormesby NR29 3LR.  Nice place with lovely people. not sure of entrance fee but they normally include a delicious buffet. Together with a bar and nice acoustics , this is always a nice gig to do. Look forward to seeing everyone again.

Party night at The Heath House this Saturday

Will be at the Heath House Public House in Gertrude Rd, Norwich this coming Saturday helping celebrate Zoe and Annas birthdays.  I know that relations will be travelling from Leicester as well, so hoping for a decent turnout. Hope a few of my own family will turn up as well to help fill the place up and create that special atmosphere. Decent pub and Landlord in Malcolm. Get away from the telly for a change and come out to enjoy. 

I may have my friend Terry there as well . Have spoken to him about being available as a duo on occasion. Terry is an excellent guitarist and can provide backing vocals as well. Hope to have some video and pics soon. x
