After the September deluge, what talent will be flooding into the Topic in October when Autumn really arrives? Come and check it out for yourselves.
Special Singers and Musicians night
We would like as many people as possible with any interest in the Topic to come along on this night to help celebrate the continuing existence of what Alex started so long ago. The more people who are there, the more it will be a tribute to Alex, who was a great one for having lots of people around making music.
Also in November: Soundsphere, Roger Wilson, Steve Tilston, Gerry McNeice Band.

Calling all artistic folk
There will be a performance of the Demon Barbers' highly acclaimed show "The Lock In" at the Carriageworks, Leeds on 12th October. ("The Lock In" is the new name for "Time Gentlemen Please"). Billed as 'The UK' s No.1 Folk and Hip Hop Dance Extravaganza', the show is on a nationwide tour, getting rave reviews wherever it goes. For details, visitwww.thelockindanceshow.co.uk <http://www.thelockindanceshow.co.uk/> .
If you’re visiting the club for the first time, be sure to come and say hello, and if anyone has any suggestions for the club, for example if you would like us to try to book a particular artist, we’d like to hear them.
The Topic runs on Thursdays at the BRADFORD IRISH CLUB. 8.30pm start. (Singers & Musicians nights start at 8.15pm). Like all the clubs in the area, our aim is to provide good quality live entertainment to suit all tastes of those interested in folk music, and we thank you for your continued support.
Floor singers are always welcome, especially in the first half. Please try to get there by 8.15pm if you’d like a slot – it helps the MC to plan the evening.

October 22 2012 SUPPLEMENT
Karl Dallas has asked me to forward the following to you. Hope to see you on November 1st
As already advised, we are devoting the November 1 Singers and Musicians Night to a celebration of the life and music of Alex Eaton, who founded the Topic.
Here is a list of the songs Alex loved taken from the commemorative CD distributed at his funeral:
It Makes No Difference Now
Incidentally, the song The Time to be Happy Is Now, was played at Alex's funeral, and it would be good if we all sang it at the end. You can hear/see it on YouTube (in a rather naff kids' version, I' afraid) at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoQ0HyXA82Y.
The words go:
The time to be happy is now
