The UK Folk Club Network Best Practices Guide for guest-booking clubs (with a view to increasing audience numbers) is now available and ready for your comments. Born out of three pre-existing "how to" guides and the results of the recent UKFCN survey, and augmented by discussions among a working group of organisers, artists and agents, the Guide is by no means the font of all wisdom, neither is it compulsory for... anyone, nor does it tell anyone how to run their club or session. It is simply a menu of ideas intended to provoke thinking and generate discussion - a menu that anyone can take or leave or use selectively, as it suits them. Please read and comment, offering suggestions for additions, changes, things we may have missed etc - this is supposed to be a constantly adapting and improving document, so it is up to all of us/you to make it as good as it can possibly be.
The Guide can be found here. Once on the page, left-click to read, right-click to download - it's in Word 97/2003 format, so accessible by most systems.
