Old Town Hall - New Venue.

Just a quick reminder that the New Century Ragtime Orchestra's annual January concert in Gateshead, for many years at the Caedmon Hall and last year at the Dryden Centre, will be at a swish new venue, the Old Town Hall on West Street, Gateshead NE8 1HE on Saturday 23 January at 7.30pm.
The Old Town Hall has been magnificently restored as a performance venue, with café and licensed bar.
There is ample free car parking next to the building, which is also only a couple of minutes walk from Gateshead Metro Interchange.
As ever, we will be featuring our guests Keith Nichols on piano and Nick Ward on vintage percussion, along with Frontman Steve Andrews on reeds, Caroline Irwin on vocals and cornet and Keith Stephen on banjo and guitar.
Tickets are available from Dave Kerr on 0191 281 4011 or ragtimedavekerr@aol.com or the box office on 0191 433 6965, see poster in sidebar for more information.
Hope you all can make it.
