FOREST ROOTS @ THE SIR ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOTEL

Dear Forest Roots Folk

Just to let you know that we are doing a one off night at The Sir Alfred Hitchcock Hotel in Leytonstone on Friday 9th October with Acoustica, featuring Paul Kerr on guitar, Chris Haigh on fiddle and Rupert on double bass with Coxy doing a support set.

We know it isn’t Forest Gate but it is opposite the forest and it’s a great venue with ample parking and a very supportive landlord so we hope you can make it.

So that’s Acoustica on Friday, 9th October at:

The Sir Alfred Hitchcock Hotel, 147 Whipps Cross Road, Leytonstone E11 1NP

Starts 8.30pm

We’d love to see you all again

Stay forever young

Jenny and Caroline
