Liam Grundy


Dear Forest Folk

We can now tell you that our surprise guest this month is Liam Grundy. Liam plays a bluesy mix of Americana and country blues and has gigged all over Europe and the States both solo and with his band. Check him out at and listen to him at  

I’m sure Chris will be getting up to play a few numbers with him too. Also we are very pleased to announce that tenstringfever who gave us such a fantastic set last time will also be playing:  

Jane Wheeler has promised to sing a couple of numbers and the Flats Family band will be there as usual so it’s sure to be a fun packed night.

So that’s Friday 24th September at the Function Room, Forest Gate Hotel, Godwin Road, Forest Gate, E7 0LW

Stay forever young

Forest Gate Hotel planning application

Open meeting with the local planning officer, the developer and the pub owner regarding the planning application to demolish the function room at the Forest Gate Hotel (yes that’s where we hold Forest Roots) to build extra hotel rooms. It will be held at St. Marks Church Hall, Lorne Road, Forest Gate, E7 on Wednesday, 29th September at 8pm. 
All welcome.

If you have any questions about this proposed development then this is your chance to ask them.
