Sadly, as many of you know, last Tuesday was the last Henry’s Blueshouse session to take place at The Bulls Head. The room was terrific, so were the drinks and food offers and pub manager, Harry Higgs and his team were terrific, nothing less.
There was no warning, I was informed the morning after the last session, which featured the Lol Goodman Band, that the pub had been sold and the keys were handed over to the new owners last Friday.
While we gather ourselves for the next step, THE BLUE PIANO bar has stepped in and offered to host tomorrow’s session and more long-term future plans will then be discussed.
The Blue Piano is around 500 yards away from The Bulls Head, there are two car parks close by as well as on-street parking. It’s adjacent to The Hagley Road, more-or-less behind Morrisons and is well-served by buses and a few minutes walk from Five Ways train station.
