Hi Everyone

We return to your interwebular perusal contraption to inform of you everything of a Rising Sun nature that happens to be occuring this very weekend.  Very much in the manner of a three-legged dog running through the park regardless of its precarious sense of balance

On Friday, we bring you THE BIG UNITDY NIGHT OUT

The Big Untidy Night Out specialises in bringing new unusual talent into the Rising Sun.  Singers, songwriters, poets, punk outfits, ambient experimentalists, sensational cellists and demonic banjo-players…the possibilities are endless.

This month's bill includes the return of the very stylish HEAD OF STEAM and the wit and charm of the COLIN STARK QUNITET. There's also the excellent local singer-songwriter STU CLARK accompanied by SARAH LAMBERT-GATES. Completing the bill we have the beguilling up-and-coming folk trio BEARWOOD!

We're open at 8pm and it'll cost you a paltry £5 on the door to get in.

On Saturday, we're proud to be bringing you our OPEN DAY!

Come and try out some taster classes and workshops, relax in our cafe bar.

Join us at our Art Auction and Cabaret in the evening and help us raise some much needed funds for the centre.

Our Original artworks POSTCARD SALE will be happening throughout the day.

Relax in our YELLOW TEAPOT CAFE with home baked snacks, also....
