The Artists

Gwyneth Keen:


This act became The Rowan in 2016 and disbanded in Febraru 2017.



The Details Lite:

tickets The Details are a band dedicated to the song writing of Dave Carroll and Andy Morton. Dave and Andy supported by the talented multi-instrumentalist Natalie Mason in this acoustic version of the band. Dave and Andy have worked in all areas of music composition and production, from rock and folk bands to classical guitar composition and theatre and TV work, but here the emphasis is on original songs covering a very wide variety of styles. It may be art but it aims to entertain with strong instrumental and vocal elements.



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.

The absence of a bar also has the highly desirable effect of ensuring the ‘pindrop’ atmosphere is maintained, with audiences intent only on the music.

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.
