All good things must come to an end…

No, I’m not talking about the final episode of Game of Thrones* (it hasn’t been good since Series 6, anyway). Rather, it’s with great sadness that I have to announce our last ever session of Counterpint in the Cafe.

Emma, our immensely genial host at Travelling Through, is shutting up shop and moving on to exciting new adventures at the end of the month,§ but for some mad reason she would love to have us back for one final shindig before the doors close for the last time!

The session will take place on Tuesday May 28th from 6.30 – 9pm and, given that it’s the merry month of May, we’ll be revisiting some of our favourite madrigals and chansons from previous Polyphony Down the Pub sessions.

Booking will go live via this link at 5pm today (Friday May 17th) with a second set of spaces released at 9am tomorrow.

If you’re thinking of coming, please bear in mind:

1. this will be a very special occasion, marking the end of 3 hugely happy years of singing at Travelling Through


2. Emma will be opening the cafe especially for us so we need to fill every space and consume lots of booze in return for her hospitality.

I therefore need to say as clearly as I can:

do not book unless you are sure that you can be there before the doors close at 6.30 on the dot.

On this occasion there’ll be no option to cancel once you’ve booked so if you change your mind/fail to show up etc you will be barred from booking for future PDtP/Counterpint sessions, and that’s fo’ shizzle.

But I hardly need to be so stern as you’ll surely want to be there for what will be a very special farewell session.



* You’re right, mentioning the GoT behemoth is indeed a shameless attempt to improve our SEO.

It’s not (quite) the end of our singing project entirely, however. PDtP will carry on, at least for a while longer…

§ Emma is holding a closing down sale, with 40% off all Travel Guide Books &

I am a classical music enthusiast and a lover of choral music in particular. I run the Polyphony Down the Pub social/singing night, probably the most thrilling singing-Renaissance-motets-in-the-backroom-of-a-pub experience you could ever hope to have.
