Something a little different to brighten up your week….

On Thursday 17th April at 8pm we are lucky enough to have the brilliant Cardwell bring his show “The Knight Of The Box Near The On  Dan Station” here to The Nog.  Tickets are available online and are a steal at a mere £3.

“The Knight Of The Box Near The Station will leave you feeling there is a little more magic in the world”. 

Fringe Guru Magazine

After thirty performances at the Edinburgh Fringe, this enchanting fairytale for grown-ups is to go on tour, ready to stop truth from getting in the way of magic once again.

This is the story of cynical commuter Sam as he escapes his dreary monotone existence in an impulsive act of rebellion. Finding himself in a dreary seaside side town out of season, Sam reluctantly helps The Knight on a valiant mission to find his magic voice and rescue The Lady in a quest for love. The most noble quest of all.

A funny little story show about music.

“Suspenseful, comical and sweet in turn”.
Three Weeks Magazine.

Advance tickets only £3 including booking fee!

Are ewe kidding me?

Ewe must be joking… Brian Grubb (pictured right!) is going head to head with a sheep in a shearing race! Which one wool win? We think they are both baaaaaa-rmy, but are full of admiration for their fundraising stunt for Julia’s House.

Julia’s House is based just across the border in, and is the only children’s hospice charity in Dorset.  It helps life limited children and their families.  They offer regular respite sessions at their hospice in Corfe Mullen, Dorset, and in the family’s own home.  They also run events for siblings and mums and dads – support the whole family.

For further information on the work they do and how to donate please click on  The great shear off will take place here on Sunday 4th May - further details to follow nearer the time.

Live Comedy

A bear walks into a bar and says to the bartender, ‘I’ll have a whisky and ……… soda.’ The bartender says, ‘Why the big pause?’ ‘Dunno,’ says the bear. ‘I’ve always had them.’

Ok, ok – so I’m not funny – I get it!  However, I do know some people who are and I do know where to find them!  That’s right, Thursday 3rd April at 8pm sees us hosting another night of live comedy for your viewing pleasure!

So, on 3rd April we have a fantastic line up for you to enjoy –  Sam Carrington, Matt Banks, Alex Thackray, Phil Reid, Philip Cooper, Rosie Martin, Edward DeCesare, Sean Patrick, Terry Vinegar, Rick Murtagh will be your acts for the evening and the increidble Geoff Whiting will be your compere. So there you have it!

Live comedy on your door step in Wincanton for a very reasonable £5 per ticket, available in advance from the bar or on the door.  Just think, you could witness the next Al Murray or Jimmy Carr!

Dates for your diary….

This Thursday sees the fabulous Ross Kirk hosting another open mic night here at The Nog Inn and quite frankly, we can’t wait!  The February open mic was absolutely fantastic and we got to witness the talented Steve (singing his own songs), Pete (guitarist) and the amazing chap on the harmonica alongside Ross (apologies I can’t remember your name!).

So, the next open mic night is this Thursday the 13th March at 9pm.  If you fancy popping along to join us you’re more than welcome.  Whether you sing, play guitar, drums, recite poetry, are a stand up comic etc – you’re all welcome!  No need to book, just turn up.  If, like me, you’re not that talented, but do enjoy the talents of others, then you too are very welcome!  We really are a friendly lot!  9pm onwards.

The following week we’ll be hosting another Whisky Club (Thursday 20th March at 8pm) and sampling some of the finest whiskies that America has to offer.  If you’d like to join us, then please let Will know either by dropping him a line at ,on 01963 32998 or just pop in!
