This week, Emily reveals a change in management at The Barge, plus your usual round-up of what’s on around the town over the next few days.

There has been a slight change at The Barge, with the departure of co-manager Paul Hamilton.

Manager Tracy Stokes-Brennan is now running the Barge with her husband Steve.

This Friday night they have live music from 9Lives starting at 9.30pm.

On Saturday evening there is entertainment from Silence again starting at 9.30pm and Cue Ball Katz is the Sunday rock and roll act starting at 6.30pm.

Also starting this week is band practice nights. So if you’re in a band and paying to hire a room, go see Tracy or Steve and put your name down for a rehearsal spot. This is for evenings Monday to Thursday 7pm-9pm and for Tracy and Steve plus the patrons they get to listen to the music and perhaps it could lead to a gig booking at the pub.

The Black Bull

It’s a hive of activity at The Black Bull in Thornton Square as they look to be having a complete make over.

Passing by I have seen many work men and the car park is full of vans.

Hopefully Good Times can bring you more next week.
