About VALLEY FOLK CLUB

WHEN TIMES ARE NORMAL Valley Folk Club meets in Glais on various Fridays every month. We try to use the 1st Friday each month for Open Nights and the 3rd and 5th Friday for Guest Nights. These sometimes move to accommodate the guest or other events at the Rugby Club. Please check the diary regularly. (below)

Until then we offer FREE ZOOM NIGHTS on the 1st and 3rd Fridays each month. See the panel on the left of this page.

On OPEN NIGHTS a warm welcome is extended to everyone to sing, play, recite or just enjoy. We sometimes allow a short set showcasing visiting performers. (Please make contact to arrange this)

GUEST NIGHTS Usally 2 x 40/45 minute sets with floor spots before the first set. (These should be pre-arranged as time is limited.)

"50/50 NIGHTS" often feature local talent when 2 acts do one set each.

Evenings usually start at 8pm. 

 

Open nights are £3 (to cover room charge) Guest and special nights can vary from £5 - £8 and this will be posted on the diary listing.
