The Folk Train

Wednesday 25 September 2019

Join us for a night of fun and music as folk musicians from around the area hold a session on the train from Lichfield Trent Valley to Sutton Coldfield. We then decamp to the Three Tuns Hotel (Suttons oldest pub) where the music continues until it’s time to leave with the session being taken on the late train back to Lichfield.

It’s going to be a night to remember and is totally free (train ticket must be purchased)! If you can play an instrument, bring it along, if you can’t join us anyway you’ll still have a great time.

Join us at 19.40hrs, in time for the 19.58hrs train, at Lichfield Trent Valley Station or 19.45hrs for 20.02hrs train at Lichfield City on Wednesday 25 September 2019. You can join us at any of the stations between LTV and Sutton Coldfield.
