Folk and Acoustic Music at The Crown Inn

at the Crown Inn, Fivehead, Somerset


Following the success of our first music evening in November, we will be trialling Folk & Acoustic Music Nights at The Crown Inn on the third Saturday of each month, from February to June, courtesy of landlords Steve & Jacqui Chastell.

Starting at 7.30pm in the skittle alley, the first part of the evening will be open to “floorsingers” – ie anyone who turns up to sing or play will get a chance to perform (depending on numbers!)

At 8.30pm Jacqui will be providing a bar supper for the interval. To pre-order supper contact 01460 281919 or

In the second half a couple of invited local guest artists will perform for about 30-40 minutes each. There will be no charge for entry, but a donation bowl may be passed round for the guest performers.
