Islington Folk Club


The Islington Folk Club is an old-established club which has met at various venues since the early 1970s. Its continuing aim is to present the best available artists, from the fiercely traditional to the frankly eccentric. The professional guest artists are supported every week by the house band - The Angel Band - and by resident singers.

There will be a general meeting at the Tap Room (163 Upper Street, London, N1 1US) on the 23rd October 2018 at 8:00pm. If you are interested in helping in the running of the club, even in a small way, please let us know. The meeting is to discuss the proposed constitution and to invite nominations for all the proposed committee positions.

Keep up with news from the club on our Facebook page: Islington Folk Club or our Twitter account: IslingtonFolk.

Since 2009 the Club has held an annual Trad2Mad competition for unaccompanied solo singers.

Programme

We normally meet every Thursday (except in July and August); the evenings begin at 8pm (doors open normally at 7.30) and end by 10.45pm. See our programme giving details of forthcoming bookings.

Venue

Most of the time, except the first Thursday of the month, we meet at:

The Taproom
163 Upper Street
Islington
London
N1 1US

On the first Thursday of each month we will be at other venues -- see programme for details.

The nearest station to the Taproom is Highbury and Islington (Victoria line, London Overground, and National Rail). Angel station (Northern line) is also within walking distance. Buses 4, 19, 30 and 43 run along Upper Street between them. Public transport information can be obtained from Transport for London. There is a map of the area on the UK Street Map Page.

Admission

Admission is normally (see lisings for variations) £8.00 (£6.00 for members). Cash only -- sorry, we don't take cards. You don't have to be a member to attend, nor do you have to apply for membership in advance.

Floor singers are very welcome -- we can usually fit you in; please note that we don't offer any reduction in the normal admission price. Email floorspots@islingtonfolkclub.co.uk or contact Bernard Puckett (address below). If you're looking for a booking, contact Bernard Puckett (bookings@islingtonfolkclub.co.uk) -- but much the best way of being considered is to come along and do a floor spot.
