The Little Unsaid & Francesca Luker

John (aka TLU) grew up in the ‘badlands’ of West Yorkshire, a multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter he is, John Elliott.
He’s already booked to perform at several festivals this year, so you may catch him out there as well..I’ve followed him for a few years and am delighted that at last he’s coming here. Whilst one can hear influences, he creates his own unique sound and …this his music, often complex, is always engaging with melodies through and through. Accompanied by viola, he’s a musician’s musician.

Francesca Luker, aged just 12, is on of my truly special discoveries of 2016… a local girl discovered a local recording studio, she’s fast becoming hot property. You know I’m pretty choosy as to who plays here and this is Francesca’s second performance this year. She writes and performs her own music and with a voice already being compared to that of Amy Winehouse…and others as well…this really is #HomeToEmergingStars

Romantic Scribblers

Romantic Scribblers – Launched 7th May 2014  Wednesday mornings 11am to 1pm upstairs at The Drawingroom.

After the success of Chesham Writers and Scribblers lunchtime and evenings groups,  Jane Carling and Jan Flannigan will be launching a new writing group for beginners, scribblers, published authors who  write about romance, crime, thrillers, historical or even hysterical fiction, but tales must have a romantic theme running through and mostly with happy endings!

If you think you have a book in you, why not come along to our informal meetings to discuss debate, share information and trouble shoot. Unlike the other groups, there will be no tasks and you will not be required to read aloud unless you want to.

These informal  meetings will be held  on the first Wednesday of the month from 11 am to 1pm at The Drawing Room in Francis Yard Chesham. The meeting is free but you pay £5.00 to The Drawing Room which will include a drink.

For further information please email
