Newport Folk Club

Newport Folk Club is proud to be associated with a number of leading events in the South Wales folk music and cultural calendar. As these events return after lockdown you’ll find details of our partnerships here. Meanwhile here are some of the events we’ve supported in the past…and expect to do so in future.

TREDEGAR HOUSE FOLK FESTIVAL

Date: May 6-8, 2022

TREDEGAR HOUSE FOLK FESTIVAL

The Club supports the huge Sunday afternoon concert at this festival held in the National Trust grounds at Tredegar House stately home in Newport. We also run an open mic at the festival. Next year’s festival dates are May 6-8, 2022, and the Club will be sponsoring a performance by the incredible Boo Hewerdine on May 8. There’ll be lots more guest-artist detail and more festival information as it becomes available at tredegarhousefestival.org.uk

THE BIG FREE, CAERLEON

Date: JULY, 2022

THE BIG FREE, CAERLEON

Our players support ‘The Big Free’ day at the Caerleon Festival, a glorious day full of music and stalls and families generally having the time of their lives. The day is a culmination of concerts and arts events that take place throughout the year. Next year’s Big Free takes place in July 2022 (and it’s usually a beautiful sunny day). More info as it’s available at caerleon-arts.org.

BENEFIT NIGHTS

Date: 22 December 2022

The Club runs benefit nights to raise funds for our partner festivals. Guests have included artists such as Alaw (pictured above in their original line-up as they appeared at the club), The Rob Lear Band and The Paul Lloyd Nicholas Band. These are amazing nights with raffles, terrific prizes and, of course, incredible music. Look out for details both here and on our Facebook page.
