We were delighted to have the company of Boyd Clack at the Celtic Pride gig last week receiving a cheque on behalf of New Horizons from the proceeds of our Easter Festival. Boyd also treated us to a couple of his songs including a version of "Oral Annie" which seems about to go viral on You Tube.
A representative of PONT was also presented with a cheque the same night.
Thanks a lot everyone that contributed in whatever capacity.

Doors open 2pm
First band on 3pm
Another fantastic line-up for this year’s festival which will be raising funds for two well-deserving local charities , PONT and New Horizons.
We have seven terrific bands playing this year each offering something a little different.
Kicking off proceedings are AGE OF ROCK a newly formed classic rock band.
30 YEAR ITCH are well known to District regulars and for the first time at the club will be playing in their new 5 piece line-up.
We’re delighted to feature ACOUSTIC ZEPPELIN at this year’s festival. These guys have quickly earned themselves an outstanding reputation on the festival circuit and will be playing a mid-afternoon set. Not to be missed.
THE WHITE ROOMS , who feature some of the most respected local musicians, will be performing the music of Cream.
THE HEIST will be descending on us from the darkest reaches of the Upper Rhondda Valley. Word has filtered down to cool, sophisticated, Ponty that these guys deliver an awesome set of no-holds-barred rock covers.
BLOND-E are a 6 piece band who perform the music of Debbie Harry. With a wealth of material to draw from their set will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the festival.
THE DOG , who are 80s legends Mad Dog reformed, will be rounding off the day in their own inimitable style. Their recent gigs have been packed out with the band in better form than ever. Anyone left standing will have earned our utmost respect.
Doors open at 2pm with all-day admission £7.50 (payable on the door - no advance tickets).

A very happy 2011 to everyone.
My new year’s resolution is to keep this section of our website more up to date.
Like many licensed premises the economic downturn is hitting us hard but thanks to your continued support we’re struggling on in much the same manner that we always have. It’s worth reiterating our mission statement that we don’t take a penny out of any surplus generated by putting on live music at the District. Some nights we lose a few quid, others we turn a small profit but when taking the year as a whole we just about keep our heads above water.
We’ve had some great nights this year with some truly exceptional bands. This year we’ll be making an effort to attract some bigger “name” bands to the club and hope that we’ll still get your valuable support if ticket prices have to increase for certain shows. Suggestions are of course always welcome.
We believe that supporting live music is a valuable contribution to make to your community and god bless all of you that keep turning up every Friday (we know who you are !).
