The Watford Folk Club is the friendliest Folk Club in Watford.

The Watford folk Club is 10 years old in October 2018!

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 varies from £4 (at Singarounds & Spotlights) to £6 - £12 (at Guest nights). There is a real ale bar, great acoustics and a friendly welcome every week.

The 2016 Watford Folk Club Folk Song Contest with the theme of "Crime and Punishment", showed yet again how much talent there is in & around Watford. Our three Celebrity Judges, Vicki Swan, Paul MacNamara and Polly Morris all commented on how tough it was to choose the worthy winner. Well done to organisers Alison Raymond & Kim Olyett for yet another great night.

Look out for details of this year's competition and for gig dates for our judges.
