Darlington’s Crown Inn Glory

The Crown Inn, Manfield is celebrating a win double with a beer festival throughout the bank holiday weekend. The Crown, a regular winner of Camra awards, has done it again. The Darlington branch of Camra (Campaign for Real Ale) has once again recognised the Crown as Darlington Country Pub of the Year and, as a bonus, landlord Peter Hynes has scooped the Cider Pub of the Year award.
The festival makes for a timely celebration with up to sixteen real ales (and five ciders) to sample. Bebop Spoken Here readers can get along to try the brews today - Sunday, May 3 - and hear the fantastic Smokin’ Spitfires (evening) and on Monday afternoon the veteran Tees Valley Jazzmen will entertain the discerning. Beer, smokin’ r’n’b and jazz. Happy daze!

Russell.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
