The Watford Folk Club is the friendliest Folk Club in Watford. There has been a Folk Club at The Pump House since 1973 and the present Club was founded in 2008 and is run by a committee and willing volunteers, all of whom are passionate about Folk music.
The Watford Folk Club has an enviable reputation for the quality and the quantity of its floor singers/players and for headlining new and established Folk performers.
We run "Guest Nights", "Singarounds" and "Spotlight Singarounds".
On a Guest Night, a professional or semi-professional Folk/Acoustic performer will play two 40 minute sets and a number of Floor Spots are available too.
At a Singaround, the chairs are arranged in a big circle and anyone can sing a song or two or play a piece or two. People also come to the club just to listed to the high-quality music. There is never any obligation to perform!
Spotlight Singarounds feature two 20 minute sets at a Singaround from local supporters of the Club.
Admission is by suggested minimum donation and varies from £5 (at Singarounds & Spotlights) to £7 - £12 (at Guest nights). There is a real ale bar, great acoustics and a friendly welcome every week.
The Watford Folk Club Folk Song Contest -is now a permanent fixture on the folk calendar and we hope our new "Songwriters Circle" will achieve the same popularity.
