Liverpool sessions

The Everyman Folk Club used to meet in the Everyman Theatre bar on Hope Street for many years. When the Everyman closed down for major rebuilding, the club moved to the Fly In The Loaf on Hardman Street. Both venues were noted for good beer. After only a few months, they moved again, this time to Osqa's Arena Bar, corner of Oldham Street & Roscoe Street, L1 2SU, where it continues to meet every Wednesday from 8.30pm in a singers night format. This venue has no real ale, which is why I don't feel inspired to go along, but if real ale isn't top of your list of priorities, I'm told this is a good session. The excellent Roscoe Head, which has been in every edition of the Good Beer Guide, is only yards away.

Every Thursday afternoon between 2pm and 4pm there is a singaround in the Belvedere Hotel, 5 Sugnall Street, Liverpool, L7 7EB. This cosy two-roomed pub usually has 4 real ales on.

This Thursday, 13 June, is the monthly singaround in the Lion Tavern, Moorfields, Liverpool, across the road rom Moorfields Station. There are always 8 real ales on. The Lion's etched glass, tiles and wood panels make it a very attractive pub, and the singers meet in the rear room with the glass dome. This singaround, or acoustic song session, takes place on the second Thursday of each month, and it begins at around 8.15pm.

Of course, if you're feeling energetic on the second Thursday of the month, you could go to the Belvedere in the afternoon, and then to the Lion in the evening. I haven't done that yet, but I'm sure I will some day.
