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 firstname.lastname@example.org ,on 01963 32998 or just pop in!
Well done to The Herbs who won the quiz last night. They have requested that the entry fees all go to the Baby Michael Fund in Bristol (£112.31). Through the raffle we managed to raise a fantastic £135 for St Margarets Hospice. That makes a total of £247.31 raised last night – you are an incredibly generous lot and your support for these local charities is much appreciated.
As always, a huge thank you must go to Doug (our quiz master extraordinaire) who gives up his spare time to write & host the quiz. Thanks a million:)

Well, look no further! The oysters we served last night clearly lived up to their reputation as an aphrodisiac as we had our first marriage proposal here at the pub! How exciting!

Ross Kirk - your host with the most!
We gave open mic night a miss in January, but we are so pleased to be welcoming it back again this month! So, get the date in your diary now! Thursday 13th February at 9pm.
As per usual, Ross will be our fantastic host for the night and will provide PA equipment and microphones etc.
So, whether you want to come along and strut your stuff, or just listen to some great live music here in Wincanton, you can be assured of a warm welcome here at The Nog!
