It’s a Blue Notes Jam Night this Thursday. Bring your instrument if you'd like to join in. If not, just come along and listen to some sweet, sweet music.There will be plenty of great Jazz and guest musicians to entertain you.

This will be our last ever night at the Corks, so let’s make it a good one. We will then be taking stock during the Summer, before we start back at the Bear Tavern in September.

Be there!

Save Bearwood Corks!

The Corks Club in which we are situated are under threat of closure. The Corks is an important community asset and a campaign is now underway to save the club. The Bearwood Community Hub will host two consultation events on Tuesday 14th May 5-7pm and Monday 20th May 4-8pm both at the Corks Social Club in the Lounge.


To save the club they will need a lot of money and one way they are looking at is through a Community Share Offer. If you are interested then you can find out more at

The fundraiser for Bryan Corbett was a huge success, supported by a host of musicians including Silvershine regulars, some new faces and some we haven’t seen in a while, including Edgar Macías, Ray Butcher and Chris Bowden. We made well ove a grand to assist Bryan in his hour of need.
