Welcome to the web site of Bedworth Folk Club.
General Information
The Club, which has run almost continuously since 1972, meets every 2nd wednesday of the month (8pm start) in the Smercote Lounge at The Newdigate Club in Smorrall Lane, Bedworth (CV12 0JP), and also holds a second night most months on the 4th wednesday, except June - August (also 8pm start) at Bedworth Rugby Club. The club is quite unique in that there is no admission charge despite the fact that there are top rate guests at almost every meeting (we just pass the jug around so you can give as much or as little as you wish a minimum of the price of a pint (around about £3 - £5) is suggested – our aim is always for everyone, guests, audience and floor singers alike to have a really good time.Floor singers are always welcome but we get very busy so we recommend a call or email to reserve a spot, on the night it is very much first come first served – if there is space available.

John Richards

JOHN RICHARDS is returning to the Club as a Solo performer this time which is a great pleasure for us. He performs his own songs in such a meticulous way that you cant help yourself but to join in. His songs cover many subjects particularly those of the Black Country where John was born and raised. His material is covered widely by artstes such as Fairport Convention, Bill Caddick, Damien Barber to name but a few as well as many other people on the folk scene who remain anonymous, the most popular being Shine On and The Deserter.
