Les Barker plus Stephen and Dee Marshall

A fabulous double-header to start 2017, featuring the hilarious Les Barker plus Stephen and Dee, the talented duo from York who went down a storm when they were our support act last April.

Les Barker writes strange poems and comes from Manchester, but he's now
Welsh. He was an accountant before he became a professional idiot. He's
written 85 books, which sell in large numbers at his gigs because people
don't quite believe what they've just heard. His poems have spawned a
number of folk heroes: Jason and the Arguments, Cosmo the Fairly Accurate
Knife Thrower, Captain Indecisive and Spot of the Antarctic, to name but

Sharing this concert will be Stephen and Dee Marshall, a highly entertaining duo from York who perform a wide variety of songs in many different musical styles – traditional and contemporary folk, with a bit of jazz added for good measure.  They were enthusiastically received when they supported Vin Garbutt last April and we are delighted to ask them back as a joint headline act.


Tickets for young adults

We have been asked several times if we can supply concessionary tickets for young adults attending Chesterfield Folk Club concerts.  The answer is yes - for under 16's only.  The caveat is that we can only do this for tickets purchased on the door as our accounting systems for on-line, Library and TIO sales cannot currently process concessions.  Under 16's may purchase tickets at half the face value when purchased on the door. 

Mobile Phone Usage

We respectfully draw the attention of our customers to our policy regarding mobile phones in the Library Theatre.  We don't know of anyone who leaves their phone ringtone active when at a concert!  However we would like to draw your attention to the general use of smartphones.  The bright screens can be as off putting for your fellow concert goers as a phone that rings so please avoid using your phone for any reason during a performance.
