Every last Sunday lunchtime of the month, we have a traditional

No entry fee - music starts from 12.45 pm.
Open Mic Night, hosted by The Flaming Llamas, takes
place on the 3rd Thursday of every month. All musicians/vocalists are
welcome to come along on the night and try their hand at performing in

Our Summer Beer Festival is held outside in a big
top marquee on the third weekend of July. We have up to 40 beers
and a range of ciders. The Festival features various live music
and delicious food from The Turkish Kitchen alongside traditional spit
roasts. There is a very special 'festival' style atmosphere and,
needless to say, the whole family is welcome.
Now in its 17th year, our Sunday night quiz is a bit of an institution!
Everyone is welcome - teams or individuals (no limit on team size).
The cost is £1 per person which is added to a running total which can be
won at random by any team - not necessarily by the quiz winners.
The quiz starts at 8.00 pm and runs for about 2 hours. No quiz on
bank holiday Sundays.
To celebrate the anniversary of the Ferguson family securing the tenancy
of The Bell way back in 1967, we have a party weekend at the end of
February to which everybody is welcome. Expect people to be
dressed in '60s gear, dancing to '60s music and buying retro drinks
(Babycham, Mild, Snowballs) with shillings and pence at...oh yes....1967
prices! (Pub opening hours in 1967 apply).
THE DISRAELI THEATRE
The Disraeli Room continues its transformation into the Disraeli Theatre
and we hope to push on with the refurbishment throughout 2014, working
towards a programme of events to inform and entertain the local
community. This first floor room remains available for private
hire and is ideal for meetings, anniversaries, christenings and other
gatherings for a maximum of 60 guests. Please contact us at
firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
THE TELEPHONE BOX
The Bell (staff & customers) have adopted the village telephone box and
currently in the process of restoring it to its original state.
It now has a smart
new coat of paint and, once finished, could prove
quite an attraction.
