Debenham Music festival 

Was looking forward to my gig at the Debenham Music Festival on Saturday 21st July (12 -5pm) Sadly my great friend Ed Cuffe who organises this much loved event is currently in hospital after suffering a stroke.  Hopefully its something Ed can recover from as many do.   So concerned right now for him and his wife Jan and of the festival will be poorer without them being there, as looks likely. Get well soon big fella.  Love and best wishes from me and Sue and from all at The Pat James & Friends Club in Norwich xx

Coming up soon

Seems ages since we had a Pat James & friends club gig. Well its next Sunday 15th July of course from 3pm as usual when our guest act once more is the lovely Susan Jayne. very popular with lots of our regulars. Hope to see you there. On sale will be my new CD " Look at us" with 16 tracks of songs not heard quite so often at our club.  Keeping the price at just £5 each . 

Will be booking next years dates at The Wensum Valley Country Club Hotel this week.  No where better , and Bridgette,  the owner of this smashing venue has indicated on several occasions how keen she is to keep us there for the foreseeable future when our surroundings are about to be improved even more.

Maggie will also be placing a deposit for our Christmas 2 course carvery for our Christmas Party on Sunday December 16th from around mid day followed by Bobby Graham, Gordon James and myself providing your entertainment from 3pm.

Also in July, I will be at the Tivetshall Railway Tavern on July 18th from 9pm to midnight. Lovely atmosphere at this most traditional of English pubs. 

Saturday July 21st, I will be on the back of a trailer at The Debenham Country Music Festival between 12 noon and 5pm with other acts including Nicky James and Clearcut.    Hosted by my now long time friend Mr Ed Cuffe.   Love to see some of our club regulars and Facebook friends there. Hopefully the weather will be fine to provide a lovely day out for you.

On Tuesday 31st July, I will be with those lovely people at the Norwich based Fabb Club in the Vauxhall Centre from 7pm.  Volunteer organiser Martin Fuller and other team members really do a great job here bringing some joy into the the lives of many less fortunate.
