I meant to mention this earlier, but the Mason's regulars decided to have an extra singaround this month on the fifth Wednesday. It's today, the 29th September, from approximately 8.30 pm. You're welcome whether or not you perform, sandwiches are usually provided by the pub, it's free and very informal. Real ale from Robinson's.
The Mason's is on Anchor Street, just behind the main post office on Lord Street in Southport.
