The Artist

Hipkiss Unplugged:

tickets Playing original songs and blues, Hipkiss Unplugged could well be described using that old word "supergroup." They are a trio comprising the wonderful Patsy Gamble, familiar to Ale House regulars, guitarist Muddy Manninen, ex Wishbone Ash, and John Broomhall, jazz keyboardist, director, artist, author and composer. They each have stellar individual careers and come together to create fabulous, original and improvisational music.

The Venue

The Ale House



Mill Lane Colwall WR13 6HJ

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.
