Waveney Folk Club

Factory Street, Lowestoft.

We formed in 1972 when pewter tankards and Arran sweaters were the "dress code" for folk clubs - and as the saying goes - we're still doing it after thirty years - though the arrans have long since shrunk in the wash and the tankards are now sadly a bit bent!

We have guest singers and groups from all over the country and try to cover the many styles and types of music that over the years have become part of the folk scene. The club has a friendly informal atmosphere in which local people can have the opportunity to get up in front of an audience and experience the fun and nerves, of a live performance.

We meet on alternate Fridays in the Crown Street Hall -see directions on the we're here page - doors open at 7.30 and the music begins at 8:00, the evening format on a guest night is 3 - 4 local singers - guest - break - 2 - 3 locals - guest, finishing about 11.00.

There is no bar at this venue but you can bring your own wine and beer with you - we have plenty of glasses! Tea, coffee and cold drinks are available too.

Although we're called a FOLK CLUB, there is no formal membership, but we do have three main aims:

to provide a place for locals to perform and so keep alive the joy of singing together. . .to bring folk artists from far and wide to broaden the appreciation of all folk cultures. . .and, of course, to have a good time . . .

Hope you'll come along to see for yourself!
