‘Ruddington Rhythm’ Music Night @ The Cottage Hotel
Nov 21 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Ruddington Rhythm is a free, fun and friendly music night, on the 3rd Thursday of every month, at Ruddington’s Cottage Hotel.

It’s organised by singer and guitarist Ron McSweeney. The mixture of performers comes with a mixture of styles: pop, folk, country, easy listening, Americana, blues, and a mixture of instruments: guitars, fiddles, accordions, ukuleles…

It’s all very friendly and welcoming to new audience members and performers alike and it’s free to attend, apart from asking you to buy a drink – perhaps the odd glass of wine, or a pint or two? (If you fancy treating yourself then remember that NCT’s Green 10 bus stops right outside!) There’s also a raffle each month, if you’re feeling lucky?

‘Ruddington Rhythm’ runs from 8.00pm until 11.00pm.

Ruddington Comedy Club – FULLY BOOKED! @ The Cottage Hotel
Nov 22 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Ruddington Comedy Club is a new and fun night at The Cottage Hotel – which is planned to become a regular fixture now it’s evident there is sufficient demand for it!

The Ruddington venue is working in association with Funhouse Comedy to bring top notch comedians to the popular out-of-town venue – meaning no struggling to find a parking space for visitors and an event villagers can walk to.

*** This first ‘Ruddington Comedy Club’ night is already completely SOLD OUT although you can ask to be put on a waiting list for any returns. ***

However, because there has been so much interest following the RUDDINGTON.info promotion, Sue confirms there will definitely now be another one at The Cottage Hotel which has already been organised for Friday 28th February 2020.  You can register your interest straight away but, to avoid any potential confusion, seats for it will not go on sale until Friday 22nd November.

Info about the debut event…

There will be three comedy acts plus a compère. On the bill for this debut Ruddington Comedy Club show will be Tanyalee Davis (from Live at The Apollo & The John Bishop Show) and Howard Read (as seen on The Royal Variety Performance) plus stand-up and magic from Alan Hudson (as seen on Penn & Teller Fool Us). The host is event organiser and Nottingham comedy stalwart Spiky Mike.

Freshly prepared hot food will be available and doors open at 7pm to allow time for those who want to eat to do so. The show then starts at 8:15pm. If you fancy treating yourself to a few drinks too, remember that NCT’s Green 10 bus stops right outside The Cottage Hotel!

New Style Café Church @ St Peter's Church
Dec 1 @ 9:30 am – 10:50 am

On the first Sunday of every month a New Style Café Church takes place at St Peter’s Church from 9.30am until 10.50am. For those wishing to stay longer, this is followed by Holy Communion.

Organiser Debbie King told us: “We aim to provide something for everyone, from pre-school, through schools, teens, students, families, parents, grandparents, all ages and backgrounds! For those wanting activity on a Sunday morning, there is drama, music, art, crafts, and discussion groups. Also, a quieter area for reflection, space to think, pray, even prayed for.”

If you’re alone, lonely, or at a loose end on a Sunday morning, you’re encouraged to go along and join in – and so perhaps discover others in a similar position. “If new to the village – come to meet people from the local community, find out about our church community in the village and the things we do. If a busy professional or someone curious with questions – check us out, join a discussion!”

Central to the Café Church idea is a short talk on a Bible related topic incorporating film clips or sketches, a time of discussion and questions. “Find out how God and the Bible can help us in our everyday life – not just a topic that’s far out there, not relevant to us – discover that God is someone whom we can meet, and the Bible, a book we can learn from, even integrate into our lives” says Debbie.

All this, alongside coffee, Danish pastries and some good company will hopefully tempt you along to the informal atmosphere of this monthly Café Church at St Peter’s.
