Hadleigh Folk & Acoustic Music Nights


Our guests are


David and Polly began performing together in 2018 and in their first few months were booked to perform at FolkEast Festival. Determined not to miss an opportunity to make a good impression, they recorded their first EP Here’s Something live in one day and released it that summer. Find out more and hear their music HERE.


Fresh from their appearance at The Chippenham Folk Festival, Sound Tradition make a belated appearance in Hadleigh.  David, Linda, Catherine and Moose will be treating us to their glorious a cappella harmony singing. Their varied repertoire ranges from lively chorus songs to lilting ballads, and from medieval times to the modern day, but always with an ear for the English folk tradition.  Further information and samples HERE

Hadleigh Folk and Acoustic Music Nights are normally, though not always, 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.

Each evening starts with an informal short  “floor spot”. Please contact us in advance to book a floor 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. Occasionally we have two joint main guests each of 45 mins. Our evenings finish around 10.00.

Entry price is £5.00.

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.
