Bryan runs the monthly session Concertinas Anonymous there.

Also at the Elephant & Castle, Bryan and Valmai run the monthly Lewes Favourites for people wanting to learn tunes popular in local English tunes sessions and helped to compile the Lewes Favourites tune books which resulted from the practice evenings.
