Tonight (Wednesday) at 7.30pm, Michigan-born Navy veteran Drew Nelson, a storytelling songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, performs.

A fly fisherman and world traveller, he writes as a witness to the lives and journeys of those he has met along the way, mixing Americana and roots-rock with traditional folk.

Tickets are £8.

On Sunday at 5pm is Tea & A Tale, featuring classic short stories performed by a professional actor.

Tickets are £3.50, including tea.
