Subject: Folk & trad listings in Surrey
From: Will Fly
Date: 28 Dec 08 - 07:14 AM

I'm in the process of compiling listings of folk clubs, singarounds, sessions and related events in Surrey. The first draft of these pages is at: Will Fly's Surrey listings.

Any additions and/or corrections will be gratefully received, either as posts in this thread or at the email address shown on the web pages. There are quite a few other venues to be found on the net, but I'm unable to check the currency, and it seems clear that many have been discontinued. Any accurate info from 'Catters in the area would be appreciated.

Thanks.

There used to be a long-running folk Club at the Ram pub in Claygate, Esher. Needs checking though.

We are temporarily hosting the Folk London site. The venue list is as published in the current edition.

Any updates should be sent to Sheila.

Thanks folks. I've corrected the Croydon email address (tho' the actual link was ok), and I have the latest info on the Ram Club, which is now at the Old Cranlieghan Club in Thames Ditton.

Hi Will,

As far as I'm aware Dorking Folk Club still meets on Wednesdays at the Friends Provident Social Club in Pixham Lane, Dorking (unless something has changed very recently).

Fantastic job you're doing there Will! (tempts me to do something similar for Bristol and Bath! hmmm, maybe...!)

But can I suggest...that you include website addresses too? these are incredibly useful bits of info.

Many thanks for the info - pages updated appropriately. As far as website addresses are concerned, they're the "clicky links in blue - just to make the entries shorter. But I may well go through the entries again and expand the links as separate elements.

Could be really useful.

But you've got the e-mail address for the Ram club under the Byfleet entry. The correct e-mail for Byfleet is anchorfolk@msn.com and their website is www.anchorfolk.org.uk

Oh, and I now see you've got the Byfleet contact under the Thames Ditton Ram club.

Will - you have listed the Music Institute in Guildford as meeting weekly - in fact, it has never been weekly, but in most months it is bi-weekly from September or October through to May. Incidentally,you might wish to check listings and members' details at SEFAN's website for more detail of events and organisations in the Surrey area at http://www.sefan.org.uk/Regular_Listings.html

Regarding events in the Guildford/Cranleigh/Farnham area then the Electric Voices website in its entirety is probably the one that you need to quote.

Will - ah yes, sorry, didn't spot what you'd done re the websites! doh! makes sense now. :)

Does anyone know of a similar regularly updated page for Bristol/Bath?

The Guildford Institute page is misleading. It gives the impression that - like other clubs - there's a weekly meet which alternates between floor singers and guests.

I'm a member of SEFAN and I know that some of the information on their pages is out-of-date. I'm also trying to double-check the venues in various listings for accuracy, and I'm reluctant to include a venue unless I've been able to verify it from (a) its own website or (b) other sources that the info is accurate. The Surrey lists seem particularly fragmented in this regard.

The Electric Voices events don't fall into the catgeory of my pages - where I'm trying to list permanent, mainly participative venues, as opposed to concerts.

Slight thread deviation - did anyone ever go to the folk club in Addlestone, Surrey (called The Station I think) in the 1970s? (that was one of my formative folk periods, when I was growing up in Surrey). Would be great to talk to anyone who remembers it!

I'm guessing there's no folk club there these days?

Sue, have you come across Tony and Peter's Folk Diary? It has loads of up to date information about Bristol and Bath - and a much wider area - but it is done by regular e-mail-out rather than on line. (It's actually just changed it's name & I can't remember the new one, but Tony is amazing at keeping it updated)

If you PM me I'll send you contact details.

Sue

(Sorry about the thread-creep)

Ah, I remember Addlestone!

The 'Station' was actually the pub next door to the railway station, called I believe the Woburn Park Hotel, now demolished. The club was approx. 1977 to 1979.

Before that it was up the road at the Dukes Head from 1974 to '77, and again in about 1983 to '84. There had also been a club there in the sixties. It too is now knocked down.

There was also one for a time at the Holly Tree in the early seventies. This pub still exists (but not the club).

hmmm..... now I'm confused... not sure now if it was Station or Dukes Head, could've been either or both periods.. Did you go to the folk club? do you remember the couple who ran it? (can see their faces quite clearly, but can't remember their names!)

Suegorgeous -

Dukes Head 1974-77 (on corner by traffic lights): run by Jan & Dave Hurst, then Dave & Chris Beecroft.

Woburn 1977-79: run by Malcolm & Jill Banks and Alan Harlow & Maggie St. George.

Club then moved to Byfleet (Blue Anchor), renamed 'Cuckoo's Nest', run by the Banks, Beecrofts and Alan & Maggie. After A & M left, club moved back to Dukes Head for a while, before moving to Ripley, then finishing.

GF - that's very interesting, thanks! it was Dave and Chris I think who ran it when I went there. Strangely, I also met Jan and Dave at the club but never realised they actually used to run it... do you know what happened to them, and Mick who was the other member of their trio? pm me if you like!

I have very happy memories of that club - it opened up to me the world of folk which I fell in love with.... used to cycle there from Chertsey as a teenager.
