UPDATE – 28 November 2020
Due to the continuing uncertainty, we will not be running our folk evenings until May 2021 at the earliest.
Our French Music and Dance Weekend has provisionally been rescheduled for the weekend of 1 – 3 April 2022
The programme will be as planned for this year with the Breton band Skolvan being our main guests
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.
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.
Entry price is £5.00. (£2.00 for floor-spot performers and 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.
