About chifolksongclub

Chichester Folk Song Club is exactly what it says on the tin: a centre of folk music, for over fifty years, in the fine city of Chichester. The club meets every week of the year at the excellent venue of The Chichester Inn
 
The present format is that of a singaround club, with everyone having the opportunity to perform a song or tune. Irregularly (about once a month) we host a guest evening, when national/international artistes from the wider world of folk music provide the main entertainment within the singaround. We do not off floor-spots.
 
To maintain variety we have a number of MC's running the proceedings throughout the year. So every night is going to be different as each MC brings their own touch to the evening's performance, be it Guest Night, theme night or singaround.
 
The evening starts at 8.15, but there is an informal tunes session from 7.45 onwards.

Contact us (email or phone) and we can advise how early to get to club.

 
No tickets or admission charges but we do take a collection.
For Singaround nights we expect £2 per head.
On Guest nights it is £5 (members £2).
 
Membership costs £5 a year, and, besides saving money on guest nights, provides members with regular newsletters,
and various social invites such as the Christmas party, Picnic and annual Piggy DInner.
 
An unsolicited testimonial:"I thought I would drop you a line and say thank you for a great evening! Lucy (Lucy Ward 2/10/2) was talented, entertaining and funny as ever! However I was really impressed with the talents and the enthusiasm of your members. There are some great singing, musicianship and interaction throughout the evening...."
