Islington Folk Club


The Islington Folk Club is an old-established club which has met at various venues in Islington 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.

Programme

We meet every Thursday (except in the summer); the evenings begin at 8pm and end by 10.45pm. The programme gives details of forthcoming bookings.

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

Venue

The club can be found at:

The Horseshoe
24 Clerkenwell Close
London
EC1R 0AG

The Horseshoe is an old-established traditional Clerkenwell pub serving real ales, currently including Sharp's Cornish Coaster, on draught.

The nearest station is Farringdon (Circle, Metropolitan, and Hammersmith & City underground lines, and Thameslink), a five-minute walk away. Buses 19, 38 and 341 stop in Rosebery Avenue, 55 and 243 in Clerkenwell Road, 63 in Farringdon Road, and 153 in St John Street. Public transport information can be obtained from Transport for London. It's a little off the beaten track, but there is a map of the area on the UK Street Map Page.

Admission

Admission is £7.00 (£5.00 for members). 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.
