Hello, you have got our session in Newcastle under Lyme at The Greyhound listed in the North-East region.  It is probably best grouped in the West Midlands.  Newcastle under Lyme is about 35 miles south of Manchester and 45 miles north of  Birmingham, near to Stoke-on-Trent.

We also have another session on the 1st, 3rd and 5th (when there is one) Mondays at The Bridge Street Ale House, Newcastle-under-Lyme, starting at 7.30pm.  All welcome.
