Welcome to Nailsea Folk Club

Welcome to Nailsea Folk Club! We have been running the club since 1987 and have developed a strong reputation for our concert programme which features top names from around the world. Over the years the club has become a family of linked activities and projects which develop and change over time

We hold our concerts in Nailsea Tithe Barn which is very comfortable and has an excellent acoustic. Nailsea Folk Club was very involved and instrumental in the refurbishment of the barn which dates from the 15th Century. It provides an ideal ambience for folk music. It is fully accessible for people with physical disabilities and has modern facilities.

We also run more traditional folk club nights including feature nights at the Ring of Bells in Nailsea which has a lively atmosphere.

Every second Tuesday throughout the year at 8pm we have our "Singers and Musicians Nights" at the Grove Sports Centre (see the dedicated page).

NFC is also involved in fundraising events and supports many local causes

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Firstly Bob Fox and Billie Mitchell are proving very popular but there are still some tickets left for next Sunday 8th May  7.30  in the Tithe Barn.


I am running a Shanty Day and evening concert on Saturday 14 May to raise funds for Bristol Shanty festival. The daytime is free, tickets for the concert with High and Dry an the Harry Browns are £10.  From the pub or


Newsflash: New event  Fri 15th July  Saltfishforty  Ring of Bells.


I have always wanted to bring these guys to Nailsea. Top notch musicians, hugely entertaining and a lot of fun. My wish has been granted. Put it in your diary!!


Saltfishforty are a fresh and dynamic duo hailing from the Orkney Islands in the north of Scotland. Douglas Montgomery (fiddle/viola) and Brian Cromarty (songs/guitar/mandola) combine the rich traditional music of Orkney with original compositions.  The powerhouse partnership have won a devoted following throughout the UK and beyond.


Ukraine: We have decided to do something practical as a Folk Club. From Sunday 15 May we will be running weekly afternoons to enable refugees being hosted to meet up. This will be at the Trinity Centre beside Holy Trinity Church 2-4.30 . 

We will be running fundraisers to support the project so expect a Ceilidh and a concert during the summer. If you are interested in becoming involved with the project please email me directly:


 Don't forget ...

Priddy Folk Festival 8-10 July: Its local and always full of surprises. There are still tickets available!


Otherwise keep well and have a lovely summer!!
