WHAT'S ON AT LGCC - AUGUST 2022: Live Music, Tea@TheGreen, Yoga & Relaxation, Banjo Bash And Much More...

04 Aug 2022

WHETHER you're into live music, quizzing, a cup of tea & a chat, Yoga & relaxation, or just a drink with some friends, there's something for everyone during August at the cricket club at the heart of its community.

Before we list upcoming events, can we please thank all members for supporting the club during Cricket Week. Whether you were here for one day, all days, or somewhere in between, we hope you enjoyed the vibe and the strong sense of community that the post-cricket evening activites generated.

Here's August's line-up then...

TUE AUG 2 - CHRIS LAWRANCE'S BANJO BASH: First Tuesday of every month; Bar 8.00pm, Music 8.30pm
Enjoy the delights of music played in the traditional & bluegrass way by Chris Lawrance and his collection of musical maestros from around the local area.

Some of the finest fiddlers and string pluckers in the region descend on The Green for an old-time music session once a month - and it's always worth a listen.

The gang usually get going from around 8.30pm at the latest. Come along and have a drink while you sit back and enjoy the toe-tapping sounds.

THU AUG 4 & WEEKLY - YOGA & RELAXATION SESSION, every Thursday; Yoga 6.30pm, Bar 8.00pm
Come along and enjoy a relaxed yoga session under the watchful eye of a qualified tutor, every Thursday evening inside the LGCC clubhouse.

Co-ordinator Glennis Taylor will be only too happy to welcome you along to a friendly group of like-minded folk.

Mats are available to use should you not possess your own, and the group often stay behind for a quick drink after the clubhouse opens to others at 8.00pm.

FRI AUG 5: LIVE MUSIC AT LGCC - Scam 69...back by popular demand!

They rocked LGCC's clubhouse back in February, so we're delighted Scam 69 are paying us a return visit this Friday evening.

Arrive by 8.00pm for a start soon afterwards. And while it's not a ticketed event and it's free of charge to members and their guests, our advice is to arrive early to claim your spot as it's expected to be a busy one.

Playing a mix of New Wave, punk, rock and other genres of the time, Scam 69 are a local band who play across the south-east of England and beyond.

Managed by friend of LGCC Pete Munroe, they're back at The Green for a second raucous night of drums, guitars & vocals.

Don't miss out. See you this Friday!

SAT AUG 6 & EVERY SATURDAY UNTIL SEP 3: Cricket On The Green (12noon starts)
Watch either our senior 1st XI or 2nd XI do battle in Saracens Herts League action.

The 1st XI are pushing for promotion from Division One into the Championship, while the 2nd XI are looking to consolidate their position in Division 5A.

SUN AUG 7: Monthly Quiz Night, 8pm start

The chance to test out the old grey matter is back this month - and then every month onwards during Autumn and Winter.

Teams can be made up of any number you'd like to bring, with the entry fee of £2 per person divided between winning teams and a charity of choice.

There's also Spot Prizes along the way, with the bar open from 7.30pm.

Join Us For A Cuppa & A Chat - Free Community Event, All Welcome

Our community get-together continues between 10am and 12noon on every second and fourth Thursday morning of each month.

Completely free to attend and personally hosted, everyone in the local community is welcome to pop by or stay for the whole two hours; whichever is most appealing.

Have a chat with other folk from around the village and surrounding areas, or simply sit back, relax and take in the calming view across The Green from our bright and airy clubhouse facility - while enjoying a cup of tea or coffee and some light refreshments.


A change of pace from the fury of Scam 69, it's Gemma-Anne singing live for us at LGCC from around 8.00pm.
More specific details on this night to come nearer the time.
