If you are a member of our Rock Club and it’s your Birthday your name will be left on the door, It’s Free entry for the birthday person.
If you don’t get yours send me an e mail with your name and membership number so I can check it out, but these cannot be backdated
Why not join my Facebook area and send some blogs and photos just find the group, the winking man pub or rock nights at the winking man
We now put a wristband on everyone who goes in to the club the wristband means you can move between the bar and club this helps you to get served quicker and watch the band. so don’t forget the PUB bar is open until 1.30 so no need for the queues at the club bar which is open until 2am
Unfortunately we cant allow drinks to be taken out of the club any more.
CAMPING Toilets are available for campers and overnight stops.
And the rules NO Camp fires or bbqs, NO noise, NO revving vehicles, and take your rubbish home, sorry to be a party pooper but I have to face up to the neighbours after
And now for something that really bugs us at the Winking Man, People bringing their own alcohol, from now on anyone caught with their own cans, bottles, booze etc will be refused entry. sounds a bit harsh but we are in the business of retailing alcohol.
PARKING…… Please park in between the white lines not over them 100 spaces marked out with room for about 40 more
ANYONE BRINGING LARGE VEHICLES (camper vans etc.) PLEASE ASK WHERE TO PARK BEFORE YOU PARK.
Electric hook ups can be pre booked on the pub number but due to people letting us down they now have to be paid for on booking.
OVERNIGHT STAY WELCOME ON THE CAR PARK BUT AS ABOVE LARGE VEHICLES MUST BE PARKED OFF THE MAIN CAR PARK TO LEAVE ROOM FOR CARS.

MY MUSIC POLICY
Predominantly it is a Classic Rock night but we cant be stuck in the 80s or 90s and to encourage a new fan base the newer Rock will be played with most genres covered.
Send me your requests for the DJ and views on the music policy and what you want to our e mail address; after all it’s your night
We do call our night a Classic Rock Night which means Classic Rock Music from the 70s to present, because the good tracks being played now could certainly be Classic tracks in a few years time as were the great bands of the 80s and 90s, and you cant live in the past…. we have to move on so please do expect some GOOD recent rock tracks.
If you do have any comments to improve the night tell me, I do listen.
Fancy making a full night out of it? Campers welcome but book you space because it’s limited at the moment.
Now if you don’t know what the Highwayman was about read this,
30th May 2003 the end of an Era, The Highwayman Rock Venue Closed it’s doors for the Last time after 28 years as the premier Rock venue in Staffordshire, That venue can never be replaced or substituted, But don’t despair……….
We now have a great head banging experience with DJ Dodge Ferguson we continue the tradition with our Classic Rock night
My thanks go to Neil Whittam and Paul Holloway who came to us after the Wayman closed and kept us rockin at the Winking Man other DJs Roy Goodall, Si Fox and presently the legend that is Dodge Ferguson who have worked here
