ICA members and guests will meet at Kingswood Methodist Church, Wollaton, at 10.00 a.m. for coffee and our day begins with a workshop led by Steve Turner at 10.30 a.m. Steve’s singing and concertina playing is in much demand and his most recent album “The Whirligig of Time” won rave reviews.
At 12.30 p.m. lunch can be taken at either the Wheelhouse or The Wollaton, recently awarded “the best pub food” award in the 2009 Nottingham Restaurant Awards. You might be lucky and get to sample the local Castle Rock “Harvest Pale” named CAMRA supreme champion beer in 2010. The church hall is 10 minutes walk to Wollaton Park, housing the magnificent Grade 1 listed Wollaton Hall completed in 1588.
Our AGM will commence at 2.00 p.m. Following coffee at 3.30 p.m. participants are invited to dust off their party pieces at our members’ concert starting around 4.00 p.m. We are particularly pleased that we will be joined by the Midland Concertina Group, who meet regularly at Kingswood.
After we’ve had some of the best fish and chips in the county, Steve Turner returns to give us a solo concert at 7.00 p.m. – a treat not to be missed. Our day will finish at around 9.00 p.m.
If you are thinking about joining the ICA, please feel free to come along and meet some other players. As our motto says, “don’t squeeze alone!”
