Dear Chequers Folk folk…
An eve of Christmas music – all in the folk style
To lighten winter’s dark days – even for a while.
With residents and guests entertaining us with charm,
Chequers Folk invites you to Cherry Tree Farm barn.
Clive and Sue Carey make a welcome return,
There’ll even be carols you won’t have to learn.
With Kate’s acapella and Dave’s great guitar playing,
It would still be worth coming along, even if you were paying,
…But no, it’s all free – well, except for the bar
Where the mulled wine is added to the usual repertoire.
Oh yes, The Wick Trimmers will be playing for you as well
With Nia on her fiddle and Colin on the bells!
Wednesday 19th December is the date for your diary,
You could even dress up well in your best festive finery.
At 8pm sharp the revelries begin
(But even if you’re late we will still let you in!)
And whether or not the hall is decked with berried holly
This evening of folk is set to be jolly,
With lots of Christmas songs both old and fairly new
And we really hope that we can share them all with you!
P.S. – a brief reminder that the fun won’t end there,
For on the 31st December there will be more revelries to share:
In the village hall of Prestwood, The Wick Trimmers warmly invite you
To join them for an evening of food and dance to welcome in the New!
