Times: 1pm till 3pm every Friday
Notes: Hi Folks, We are a group of budding folk and acoustic musicians supporting each other in order to become better musicians. We do this by providing opportunities to play music for each other as individuals, as duos, trios or small groups; we also provide opportunities for people to play and jam together; and, we provide opportunities for folk to learn from each other and support each other in their endeavours. We meet every Friday upstairs in the Ship and Mitre pub, Dale Street, Liverpool. Feel free to come along and join us, you'll be made very welcome. The folk tradition is a community tradition that is open to all, it is characterised by warmth, friendliness, goodwill, a willingness to share and willingness to learn from, and with, each other. It is sometimes described as a 'folk family'. If you like the sound of this come along and give us a try. Hope to see you soon!

The Sparrow Bier Cafe (Bradford) 32 North Parade, Bradford, BD1 3HZ 07743 533 509 Schedule
Times: Not operating at present
Notes: The Sparrow Bier Cafe is the sort of home of Thinkford the (not particularly inventive name of the) Bradford Philosophy in Pubs group. (I say "sort of home" because really, like the saying goes, "home is where the head is".) What we here at Thinkford try to do is (in theory) to seriously engage in objective, analytical, philosophical discussion with the aim of improving understanding. In practice we just edge towards a deeper clarity of not understanding and tentatively peer into that gloomy darkness. (You'll find us, like Milton said, "Dove-like sat'st brooding on the vast Abyss".) If you go to our utterly fabulous website you'll find further lame excuses for our existence and details of past meetings. By the way if you notice that our schedule listing on this Philosophy in Pubs site is blank (saying "No scheduled topics/events") this isn't because this group is closed. No, it's more just that we don't really do fixed meetings and topics. The idea of this group is more that we have a meeting whenever (and if ever) anybody wants one. Then, all the abstract philosophical and/or intellectual matters the attendees have been ruminating on recently, those are the topics for the meeting. Bring them to us and we'll share the burden. So, while at first glance, it might seem that this group is seriously "in abeyance" rather it is just waiting for you, dear reader, to contact me and for deep serious conversation to ensue. Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you. Masood (group co-organiser). ......... EMAIL Masood: zkk42 at yahoo dot co dot uk .............National Coordinator (PIPs) 07743 533 509
