Recently we have had requests for Guest Night tickets to be held at the door for collection upon arrival.
Please note we are unable to do this as we do not sell tickets in advance – admission is entirely ‘pay on the door’.
Our doors open at 7.30 pm for an 8pm start, prior to which there is ample space to wait in the bar area.

Singers Night. This event has been cancelled as all our floor singers at the Chester Folk Festival
Folk music has always been about people telling their stories, either in song or in rhyme. The Singers Nights has long been the conduit for this and without the “Guest Act,” this allows the local talent , which is at the heart of the club, to present more of their repertoire and to discuss the song in more detail. The evening is both relaxed and entertaining and we welcome all to come and listen or to take part. There are no barriers to talent, it is just a way of engaging more people in the tradition. Play, Sing, Recite or just sit back and listen to the local talent. Start time is 8pm and admission is free.

Comprising the singing talents of Alex Cumming (Alex Cumming & Nicola Beazley), Kate Locksley (Night Fall), Rosie Calvert (Speldosa) and Will Finn, the a capella foursome have been creating a storm across the UK festival circuit in the past few years with critically acclaimed performances at the Shepley Spring Festival, Beverley Folk Festival, Warwick Folk Festival, Sidmouth Folk Week, Whitby Folk Week and many more.
Their debut album, ‘One For The Pot’ explores traditional and contemporary songs from all over the British Isles and beyond with a sensitive and lyrical approach to arrangement. Their second album, ‘Of Labour & Love’ contains new and original compositions as well as murder ballads, exotic shanties and traditional songs of love and loss, and has been critically acclaimed.
We will now take our summer break and enjoy the festival season see you all again on the 7th of September
