nights on other dates (see programme). Entry to the usual club
night costs £2. You are invited to bring your own drinks but tea /
coffee is available throughout the evening.
folk styles are encouraged. Performers are given respect, attention and
warm support, they may choose to entertain from 'the floor' or from
audiences will share a lively and varied evening of song, music, poetry
and stories with the opportunity to join in, or just listen - among
present infrequent, high quality concerts. Folk play and ballad
documentary presentations are of particular interest to us and
involvement of local performers is sought and encouraged.(see Folk
Plays and Folk Concert pages for details.)
We also encourage and facilitate the recording of locally produced music and song and promote CD sales.

their favourite 'Acts'. Their choices are subsequently 'drawn' and the
'winning' nominee(s) then have the opportunity for an extended
performance of four 'pieces' or approximately 15 minutes to entertain.
