Some 'Notes' for the Rose in June Music Session

Thanks to all who came to our fifth birthday session including a couple of new faces. And HUGE THANKS to the Rose in June and especially Caroline - the late Sunday dinner was just amazing - thanks guys for always making us so welcome.

Fourth Birthday for The Rose in June Session Celebrated Oct. 2016

Just a note to let all know that we are still meeting at the Rose in June. Once again the Rose did us proud with a brilliant full roast dinner to celebrate four years at this brillant pub.- amazing fayre - thanks so much to the landlords and all the staff.

Third Birthday for The Rose in June Session Celebrated Oct. 2015

see the photosAlthough the session started in June 2012, our official birthday is in October as June is a busy month at the Rose.

A huge thankyou to our landlords who are so supportive and who laid on a great spread for us. It was great to see so many people there - the room was packed as the photos (thanks Allan) will attest. You'll all have to come next month to prove you weren't just there for the food (CQ).

Click the photo to go to the gallery where we have eight of Allan's photos of this lovely afternoon.

(Note: CQ = chuckles quietly - alternative to LOL - please use it - I'm trying to get it into the lexicon)

A Folk Music Session at the Rose In June pub - Portsmouth

Music, libation, comfort and a friendly welcome. If you play or sing folk music or just want to listen - come and join us.

2nd Sunday of every month - 2pm to 5pm ish. See contact page for a map.

What Kind of Session? - What music is played?

Folk tunes are our mainstay and any music that falls into the broad category of folk is welcome.

Singing is welcome to leven the session but, again, it needs to fall into the broad category of folk music and be accessible to music players and other singers - it needs to be 'joiny-inny' rather than a performance.

Summing up, we will keep a folk tune and music session identity as opposed to an open mic / old pop songs / anything goes type event.see the photos

Parking at the Rose in June

The council have now banned our landlords from issuing parking permits. We have created a map showing you available parking. Click here to see the parking map.
