Open Nights

These often feature a 40 minute spot by a pre-booked guest, sometimes a local semi-professional artiste.

Hoy Singers' Club
The Crooked Billet, High Street, Old Leigh

On the first Wednesday of each month The Hoy hosts a Singers' Club 

The sessions are friendly & informal and everyone is welcome to attend and/or participate

They give all those attending the opportunity to try new songs
or even attempt a performance in front of others for the first time.

Encouragement and advice is offered on a friendly basis
from experienced long-term members of The Hoy.
