The Diary -Classic September at Vouts – Ponies, Mods, Dandies and Sonic Youth

Vout-O-Reenees + The Stash Gallery    Diary September 2016

Now we are OPEN AGAIN Welcome back to term time. I know we all enjoyed our Summer Hols and probably had far too much, lashings of ginger beer and fizzy pop in foreign climes; we know we did! But now we must put our nose to the grindstones and get back to the serious business of enjoying ourselves. Loads going on in Vouts so join in or have your own party. We now have a NEW kitchen, lights and Turntables, so the world is your oyster just get in touch and we’ll try to fit you all in. All events easier to visualise HERE!
