Live listening music in cosy venues
“What a fantastic hidden gem of a venue!” “It‘s like a private party among friends. Enjoy the banter.” “A jewel by the hill” “Keep it secret”

The Details Lite is an acoustic subset of the Birmingham-based 5-piece band The Details whose music is based around the highly original and eclectic song-writing of Dave Carroll and Andy Morton. Dave became known in the 1970’s for his work with the Birmingham-based Steve Gibbons Band, touring with The Who and appearing on “Top of the Pops”. Dave’s adaptability as a guitarist was much in evidence with the Royal Shakespeare Company for whom he worked from 1990 to 2007. Dave and Andy are joined by multi-instrumentalist Natalie Mason.
As usual there will be no bar at this event but you are welcome to bring your own. Wine glasses will be provided.
This act became The Rowan in 2016 and disbanded in Febraru 2017.
The Details Lite:
The Ale House
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.
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.
