Acoustic Guitar Cafe at Dickens Heath

The Acoustic Guitar Cafe at Dickens Heath would like to invite all members of Shirley Acoustic Guitar Club to come and join us for our Acoustic Christmas Special on Tuesday 16th of December at 7.30pm in the Parish Room Dickens Heath. There will be plenty of opportunities to perform, enjoy a fresh coffee and meet our enthusiastic new members.

The postcode for the Parish rooms is B90 1UD and in terms of directions – on entering Dickens Heath on Dickens Heath Road, turn left at the first island and keep going straight on down Rumbush lane through another two islands until you get to the third at canal side. The Parish Rooms are at the bottom of a large apartment building.

Hope to see you all there,
