Croydon Folk Club meets at Ruskin House, 23 Coombe Road, Croydon, Surrey, CR0 1BD at 8pm on Mondays.
Guest nights form the bulk of our operation and we have, over the years, provided a varied programme of excellent quality. Our guests, of late, have included Waterson Carthy, Martin Simpson, Shirley Collins, The Poozies, Last Nights Fun, Dick Gaughan, Jez Lowe & the Bad Pennies, Steve Tilston, The New Rope String Band and The Mrs Ackroyd Band. Our programme moves from solo artists and included presentations like The Demon Barbers Roadshow with nine performers. Guests to come
Floor spots on guest nights are always welcome. However, some nights are very busy and potential performers are advised to call beforehand to ensure their spot. Performers are encouraged to attend a singers and musicians night prior to performing on a guest night or provide the organiser with recorded material.
Singers and Musicians nights, sometimes called “Open Mike”, are held regularly and all corners are encouraged to sing and play. This is the basis of any good folk club, the encouragement of performance at whatever level. no need to call for a spot just turn up and go.
