Poppy & Pint
The Poppy & Pint is a light, airy and spacious pub that is nestled right at the heart of the Lady Bay community...
As with any Castle Rock pub, the drinks range is diverse and has a great mix of traditional and newer beers from hand pull pumps that decorate the bartop, to a whole wall dedicated to craft beer.
The pub has three main areas: a dining room, a cafe bar and a traditional bar - meaning it’s suitable for both those who want to do some work during the day or those who fancy a relaxed session. They’re also known for serving up some good grub, too.

The Poppy Folk Day at The Poppy and Pint
Sunday 22 March 2020 10:30
MORNING SINGAROUND - 10:30AM
All are welcome to join us for a round-the-room singing session. Bring a song to sing, a tune to play, or just come along to listen.
EARLY AFTERNOON CONCERT - 1:15PM
Ian Price, Dorothy Plater Trio, Julie Palmer & Phil Preen, Terry Maxwell, Stonesthrow.
Stonesthrow are a recent collaboration between Burton Folk Club's Tony Fowkes, and Derby duo, Steve and Julie Wigley. Discovering that they lived a 'stone's throw' apart, they got together to try some songs and found, to their astonishment, that it worked quite well! After singing at Moira Furnace Folk festival and in the Fringe at Derby Folk Weekend, as well as around the local folk clubs, they are recording an album together, due out in the Spring.
Terry Maxwell Born in Oregon, Terry moved to the UK in 1973. He is a singer, songwriter and guitarist still singing with an American twang and is a flatpicker by nature sometimes using a half capo for a more modal effect. Terry performs with the bluegrass, country trio "Cellotapes" and with electric blues band "Better Than Nothing".
Poppy Folk Club Showcase An opportunity for some of our Poppy Folk Club singaround regulars to perform on the 'Big Stage'.
First up is Ian Price, an unaccompanied singer of modern-ish folk songs with a political slant (because nothing ever changes!) He will occasionally surprise us by throwing in one of his own!
RoDoJa is Roger Lymm, Dorothy Plater and James Minns. They started singing together at the start of 2019 and enjoy playing with a variety of folk songs from America, UK and Ireland.
Julie Palmer & Phil Preen are founding members and are the reason the club exists. Julie is at home performing a Child ballad, a rousing chorus song, or a comedy number. Phil has an eclectic repertoire of songs, and basically sings anything that takes his fancy. He plays percussion, tin whistle and concertina.
LATE AFTERNOON CONCERT - 3:45PM
Jim Hellewell, Helen & Chris Morris, Phil Langran, Looma.
Looma Three parts English, one part Orkney, Looma plays acoustic roots and folk music from the swamps of Louisiana to the Swedish midnight sun, and everywhere in between. Bringing together folk, blues, cajun, bluegrass and country traditions, as well as original songs, Looma mix driving energy with strong vocals and foot-tapping tunes. Looma are: Liz Logie (Piano Accordion, Percussion, Vocals); Mark Theobald (Harmonica, Ukelele, Vocals); Bob Gilmour-Evans (Guitar, Vocals) and Tim Garland (Cittern, Fiddle, Vocals).
Phil Langran has been writing, playing and singing songs since the age of fifteen, leaving a trail of broken strings from Brighton to Inverness. Phil has honed a distinctive style - literate, highly melodic and keenly observed scenes of life, love and landscape. He has recorded and appeared extensively as a solo artist and with the Phil Langran Band.
Helen & Chris Morris have dipped in & out of the folk scene for the last 40 years, both musically & as dancers. Helen sings a mixture of traditional & contemporary songs, accompanying herself on guitar. Chris plays guitar, flute, mouth organ & sings mostly contemporary 1960's songs. Together, they perform a mixture of both.
Jim Hellewell Jim tells us: "I picked up my first harmonica in the early 60s, playing mainly blues. Fast forward to the end of the decade and I was introduced to folk music which gave me the chance to use my harp, playing and singing with other musicians. At present I play and sing with the Strawberry Jammers. People often ask me how I manage to breathe while playing....the answer is "I haven't got a clue!"
MUSIC SESSION IN THE BAR - 6:00PM
We have invited local musicians to come along for a jamming session downstairs in the bar. Why not bring your instrument along and join us?
EVENING CONCERT - DOORS 7:30PM CONCERT STARTS 8PM
Faustus, with their trademark powerhouse English folk, have spent much of the past two years researching and writing new material from the poetry of 1860s Lancashire Cotton Famine, resulting in powerful and moving new songs and an already acclaimed 5-track EP, Cotton Lords. Band members Benji Kirkpatrick (Seth Lakeman Band, Steeleye Span, Bellowhead), Saul Rose (Waterson:Carthy, Eliza Carthy's Wayward Band, Whapweazel) and Paul Sartin (Bellowhead, Belshazzar's Feast) are three of the leading lights of their generation and all deeply rooted in the English tradition.
Jenny Bell & Wil Walker Jenny Bell (vocals, lute, 12-string guitar) and Wil Walker (fiddle) perform regularly at the Poppy Folk Club. A contemporary folk duo, they perform mostly Jenny's own songs - and she has written many - alongside the occasional dip into medieval music.Full details
