Over the weekend of Halloween the Sportsman are having a series of events to whet the appetite of any passing wizard, warlock or witch, and the odd interested beer drinker too.
It starts on Thursday 27th Oct when the jazz band, the Quarry Hill Hot Club are playing there, with their version of 'swinging gypsy jazz' inspired by Stefan Grappelli and Django Reinhardt .
If this is not your thing then why not try calling round on Saturday the 29th when funk band 'TBC' are making an appearance and Dangerous Dave will be spinning dancebeat, reggae, and dance hall (I cannot wait !).
In between, on Friday, and more in line with 'A Swift One', comes another beer and food evening with 10 beers of all different tastes and from different countries, complemented by home cooked food, no doubt with a beer theme knowing the Sportsman. It costs £20 a ticket, starts at 8pm and the tasting will be done in the cellar to give a proper Halloween feel to the occasion.
Seems like a good excuse to get the broomstick out and celebrate in style.
