PS-Malcolm and Bill-you are obviously both welcome there, sorry I can't pay you for going, at least for the time been, but as I said earlier=the landlord is keen on music, and does his paying gigs on Friday and Saturday, so if you go and do a spot and the landlord likes you, you might get a paying gig out of it, [not sure what he pays, or what you charge, discus it between yourselves], anyway = i think you live near each othrr? i know Bill lives near Selby, not sure about Malcom, maybe you could give each other a lift? anyway, be good to see you there.john

Thanks everybody, JOhn and Murray etc-you would be very welcome, the bear is ok, and as its a social club the prices are slightly cheaper than the pubs.I work in the indian take-away opposite the place, so I will try to persaude my boss to give us a pot of curry at cost price or as near as possible to that, for our supper. I've been working there 9 years now so I might be able to persaude him to give us a free pan of curry as sponsorship/advertising! I'll see what I can do.
As I said earlier, I have found the venue, the rest of it is up to you ie if on a certain night they are all shanty singers or singer songwriters then thats what it will be for that night.
I would like it to be easy going and a similar format to the recent temporary Folk Club at the Beverely Folk Festival, that Linda and Mick and Roger did such a good job of organising, ie anyone that wants to have a go, be they singers, or musicians is given a chance and made welcome and encouraged.
I hate rules and don't intend having any, but would simply ask that any singer/musician that wants to do a spot is given the chance to do so.
So wether you sing, play or just listen, lets see you in there!

Good luck; and don't forget to get the club listed at the Yorkshire Folk Arts website. There's an online form (the best way of doing it) at  http://www.yorkshire-folk-arts.com/directory/form.html

I will be there John. More thoughts later. Put it in your diaries, sell your grandmothers, book the annual leave, bounce the cheque, kidnap your friends, threaten to send photos of famous people to The News of the World if they dont turn up, JUST BE THERE!

Does it have good beer, jOhn? Enquiring minds need to know.
I'd love to support this, but as you know I'm a bit far away to be a regular.

Wishing you all the best.

Best of luck John. Now that I am back in the old country, I am looking for occasional forays south, and an excursion to Hull may be just the thing.

Hope it all goes well.

Murray

Great to hear of a new club. Will try to make it along the M62 one Thursday night (can't make it on the 4th due to gig commitments in Derbyshire). Would love to be able to persuade you to put on Julie Ellison as one of the guests! Contact me via John@Adaxia.com if you wish.

As regards advice on running a club, you could do worse than taking a look at the Rivelin Folk Club in Sheffield. You couldn't to meet a nicer bunch of people, very welcoming, great sense of humour, well attended singers nights. No door charge just a collection and they raise enough to have the occasional guest.

They have a website at http://www.dgbiz.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk

John, you obviously find very good advice on mudcat. At quarter past five you started a thread asking advice on running a folk club, and here you are less than two hours later doing it.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!

I am opening a Folk Roots and Accoustic Club in Hull shortly.
It will be at The Marlborough Club, Chanterlands Avenue, Hull.
every Thursday evening, starting on the 4th of September.
Its a good venue, with a good concert room with stage.
I have spoken privately to a few people that have kindly volounteered to get involved they are=
Bassic-He organised a music festival a few years ago.
Linda Kelly-Ran the Folk Club at Beverley Festival
Ossonflags-Has been involved with various clubs over the years.

Due to work commitments etc these people will not be there every week
The idea I have is that ALL singers and musicians and listeners will be welcome.Admission will be free to encourage people to go, but we might have a raffle to raise money to book acts, perhaps starting off with cheap local acts.
Stuff like this will be sorted out at the first night, I hate meetings and commitees and stuff, and would like to keep things informal, but perhaps a quick ideas session would be an idea, for people to give their ideas?

The landlord [Chris] is easy going and supports live music and books acts, he has given us the room for free.
I have found the venue, and intend to promote it,
but the format and music depends really on who turns up,
though everyone will get a chance, and beginers wether singers or musiciasns will be encouraged.
Hopefully see you all there!
jOhn
