Pub pioneers new-style event

Have your say

A SOUTH Yorkshire pub is being a local trailblazer for a new type of entertainment.

The Cross Keys pub, in Darfield, is becoming one of the first in the area to host Tagi-oku, on the evening of Saturday, September 1, from 8pm.

Darin Kay, manage of Local Vocals Entertainments, which is putting on the event, said: “Tagi-oku literally means versatile entertainment.

“The concept of a Tagi-oku night relies on a professional artiste performing during the evening. Anyone who wants to join in and sing, karaoke-style is also welcome to grab the mic, or even any performers with instruments can take the stage.”

Darin added: “Tagi-oku nights also contain an element where everyone can have the opportunity to win prizes whether they sing or not - this is not a singing competition.”
