We all know the fabulous drummers who support us each Fifth and start our evening outside HQ. Each January they hold their own event just outside Eastbourne and I (an SBS monk – not Emmeline) would like to suggest we attend to support them. I and others have been before, it is a fantastic evening with both Eastbourne and Seaford Bonfire Societies attending.

Mid-January is a slow time of the year with Christmas and New Year over not to mention Bonfire season! The Pentacles would be delighted to have a SBS contingent so, to gauge interest, who would be interested in this winter warmer “outmeeting” with drumming, music and mulled cider?
