Community Happenings

Pub Swainswick   1st Friday of the month at 6.30 – 8.30pm

An unusual but very friendly pub with excellent beer. A perfect place to meet up with friends and make new ones with occasional live music from local musicians.  Sometimes it is a small gathering which means more chance to chat properly and sometimes it’s lots of people.   A  church and churchyard with a happy buzz, all ages, all kinds and from all over the parish and beyond.

Children are very welcome. There are usually plenty around, often playing outside in the churchyard or sitting in huddles in the pews.

Come and Sing in Swainswick

We’re a small group, singing folk songs, world music, spirituals and whatever else we can find. Some of us read music and some of us learn by ear, anyone can join, it’s not a big commitment and it’s completely free.  We’re certainly not elite, but we enjoy ourselves.

If you’d like to come along, even (particularly) if you think you can’t sing, please do.  We meet in Swainswick Church 7.30-8.30 on the second Wednesday of each month.  For more details email:
