Hadleigh Folk and Acoustic Music Nights are normally held on the first Friday of the month – from September to July at the Ansell Centre, Market Place, Hadleigh IP7 5DU.
We feature folk music in the broadest sense of the word. In addition to “traditional” and “contemporary” folk music, you can expect to hear hints of pop, country, jazz or even classical music.
Our doors open at 7.45 and the music starts at 8 o’clock.
Our 2017-2018 programme is now complete. Check here.
Each evening starts with a number of “Floor spots” – where anyone can come
along and perform: singing songs or playing an instrumental. In practice, it’s
advisable for would-be performers to contact us in advance to book a spot.
Next, after a short break, is our Featured Guest: a 30-minute performance from an
individual or group.
Finally, after another short break, our Main guest finishes the evening with a
60-minute performance. Our evenings finish around 10.30.
NEXT DATE 1 September 2017
Our main guest on this first evening of this our seventh season is the Terence Blacker, now a firm favourite at our club. You may remember what is perhaps his most well-known song: Sad Old Bastards with Guitars.
Here’s what Terence says about himself:
Over the past ten years, I have been writing and performing my own songs – for me, it’s an important new way of telling stories and expressing how I feel and think. I have played at festivals and in folk clubs across the country. I have released two CDs of my songs – in 2012, there was Lovely Little Games, and then in 2016 Sometimes Your Face Don’t Fit came out.

Entry price is £5.00. (£2.00 for under 16s)
There is no bar at the Ansell Centre, but you are welcome to bring your own drinks.
There is plenty of free parking within easy walking distance of the venue.
