Black Fen Folk Club

Open Stage Nights
One of our main aims in setting up the folk club was to give local people a place to play acoustic music to an attentive audience. We welcome singers, instrumentalists and dancers from all musical traditions and at all levels, from beginners to professionals. Listeners are also very welcome at the club. Our open stage nights last from 7.30pm - 10.15pm, with a 15 minute break in the middle. 

Some info for performers: We make every effort to give people a chance to play. There is no need to turn up early to book a spot, but we do recommend that you turn up reasonably punctually if you want to play. The number of songs you will be able to do depends on how many other performers turn up. It is usually around one song in each of the first and second halves. Please note that we are an acoustic club, so it will not be possible to play through a PA. Rest assured that the audience is very respectful so you should have no problem being heard. 

We always have floor spots available on our gig nights as well as on our Open Stage nights. However, these are more limited in number.

Admission to our Open Stage nights is £4. Forthcoming Open Stage nights will be on:
