Folkclubs in this area
|Derby Heritage Traditional Music Club||Derby's premier folk music venue... The Derby Heritage Traditional Music Club (affectionately known as 'The Gaol Folk Club') due to the unique nature of the chosen venue, The Old Derby Gaol!We are here on the third Thursday of every month? (Except August.) Experience the best in live, traditional music performances from many of the leading local exponents (Chris Orme, Jack Crawford, John Titford, Bill Wilkes and Pete Burnham to name just a few.) Special guest appearances from top national and international performers to entertain, inspire and delight the audience and performers alike! |
Bring a song or two of your own if you wish - one of our main aims is to provide an opportunity for ordinary people to get up (or not) and perform an item - be it a song, a tune, a story, a dance (when there's room!) or even a joke!
Or simply come and avail yourself of the 'entertainment' and renowned atmosphere and maybe sing along with the choruses!
We promise that you will not be disappointed and you will be made very welcome...

Autumn 2005 saw the first performance in this newly refurbished auction ring with Jeremy Hardy. He performed to a near capacity house with whoops of laughter bouncing around the walls and everyone went home amazed at how intimate the space feels for 300 seater. Norma Waterson and Martin Carthy loved the feel of the space and thought it was fantastic for sound and are looking forward to hearing about a folk festival being developed as they thought it was a super venue and the first Family Christmas Show sold out of all but one of it’s performances. The Mart Theatre, Ling Fields, Gargrave Road, Skipton BD23 1UD Box Office: 01756)791411 - Mon-Fri 10am-4pm

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.
