Fridays 14th October, from 8:00 pm.
You've missed the 'official' taster day, but don't despair. Turn up to the Elizabeth Hall (RG27 9HH) any Friday, starting Friday the 13th (nip into the Hogs Back brewery for their special beer), for a taste of Border Morris. And your own beer.
Sunday 8th January from 12:00pm

At the Jubilee Allotments.

The Mill House - that's a Brunning and Price pub. Didn't Brunning and Price have the other vanishing cabinet in that Harry Potter film?
The Hogget - seen Unexpected Journey and Desolation of Smaug. Can't see the third one in the guide though.
Not that I've been watching much telly this Crimbo . . .
Sherlock's on New Years Day. Next one clashes with Endeavour though.
