UK Folk Clubs A vital Index of Folk Clubs UK Folk Clubs Index Folk Clubs Listing
The Folk Clubs listing is being completely renewed and updated because some clubs have moved, others have folded and new clubs started. The last time this was done, was in 2015 and located around three hundred and fifty clubs. Many of the clubs booked guests, others were sing-arounds.
Over the intervening years some have changed to an ‘open mic’ format. We would like to guarantee information about every folk club. However can only get information from their web sites or Facebook pages. Already we are finding that some website haven’t been updated or modernised. To locate folk clubs in your area, simply click on the county you require. You will then see a new page with a list of clubs in that region.

Worcestershire Venues across the UK
The many clubs all over the UK still provide great entertainment. They also provide opportunities for new performers to try out songs and tunes. Guest booking clubs give audience the chance to see some of the top names on the folk scene. They are also important to acts who are pro or semi-pro entertainers.
You will discover that there are many variations in the venues take. There are plenty informal sing-arounds and sessions plus concert clubs. Every club seems to have it’s own personality, due to them being run mainly by volunteers. Enthusiasm is often the key requirement for running a club. An enthusiastic committee is vital to the continued success of any type of club. May venues will welcome offers of help and fresh faces. Good club organisers will build a rapport with members and create a great atmosphere at the venue. It’s always a delight to be amongst friends and like minded people for a night of entertainment.
