Feedback from our guests on the night

"Absolutely amazing. Transported ..."

"Sublime music, special musicians, unique venue. A privilege to be in such company."

Last May the James Watson & Patsy Gamble band inaugurated the Ale House Concerts with an evening of delicious melodic, original jazz. It was a perfect warm early summer evening, with the songs of blackbirds drifting in through the open windows of this lovely, cosy 16th century hall.

The band are back to treat us once more to wonderful music and virtuoso playing.

As last year, Appleby Kinsey will be starting off the evening with their more folky, but still original and melodic style of music, this time in a trio format.

A fine evening is guaranteed.

The atmosphere at these concerts is unique. The audience sit at small tables, complete with candles and flowers, and bring their own wine and enjoy the intimate bistro-like atmosphere while in close contact with the performers.

The venue is small and tickets are few. These concerts generally sell out so be sure to get your tickets early.

The Venue

The Ale House

Mill Lane Colwall WR13 6HJ (map)

The Ale House is a delightful and intimate concert venue, with warm acoustics.

Despite its name, there are no bar facilities at The Ale House and events there do not normally make alcoholic drinks available for sale. Most events, however, are bring-your-own. Wine glasses are made available.

In the 16th Century The Ale House was a place to serve ale to the parishioners of Colwall after church services. Nowadays, while having all modern facilities, it retains its ancient charm, with oak beams and leaded windows.

It is situated adjacent to St James the Great Church in Colwall. From the main B4218 going through the main part of Colwall, turn down Mill Lane, which is just north of the railway bridge. Go past Colwall Village Hall and the church is about half a mile further down the lane.

Park in the large car park next to the church and walk through the churchyard to the Ale House.

For reasons of safety parking is not allowed immediately adjacent to the building.

Disabled Access

The Ale House is fully equipped for wheelchair access.

There is a pull-in space by the main door at the south end of the building (shown in the picture) for drop-off.
