WHAT IS LAZYACRE?
Lazyacre Country Music Club was formed by Tony Best in March 1978 with the object of fostering public appreciation and enjoyment of country music in the Shropshire area, by the promotion of fortnightly concerts and occasional special shows and events.
WHEN AND WHERE?
The club now meets in the Regency Suite of THE LORD HILL HOTEL, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury SY2 6AX. The hotel is located on the east side of Shrewsbury close to the Lord Hill’s Column, a prominent landmark in town, and is very simple to find. Club-nights are held on alternate Mondays with occasional variations and extra shows. Doors open at 6.00 pm and shows run from 8.00 pm until about 11.00 pm.
Membership is not essential but it entitles members to reduced admission prices to all shows. Membership costs £7.00, or £10 for a couple, and it lasts for a full year from the date of enrolment.
All members receive a free copy of the Lazyacre Newsletter, which is published every ten weeks or so, giving details of forthcoming shows and keeping members in touch with what is going on at the club and elsewhere.
The admission charge on clubnights varies according to the artists appearing. Tickets are required for all shows and can be booked in advance by telephone (01743 241899). Prices vary from £6.00 to £12 for members and a little more for non members.
Tea and coffee, and a good variety of bar meals and snacks are available. Country music publications are on sale, and there is always a raffle with usually a dozen or so prizes. Members in attendance qualify for inclusion in the Members’ Free Draw for a cash prize of £20.00, which if not won, is carried over to the next clubnight, sometimes mounting up to well over £100, and recently reaching £200.
ARE VISITORS WELCOME?
We welcome guests most heartily. Being a specialist country music club, we respectfully ask visitors (and members) for the very best of order whilst artistes are on stage. Lazyacre CMC is a concert club with no dancing.
