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 FUNDRAISER CONCERT

Date: 16 December 2021

TREDEGAR HOUSE FOLK FESTIVAL FUNDRAISER CONCERT

Newport Folk Club will be hosting a fund-raising event for the Tredegar House Folk Festival on Thursday 16th December 2021. These bi-annual events have proved to be very popular nights at the club and have featured some outstanding performers.

This year the THFF fundraiser will include performances by the winners of the songwriter competition, which was the brainchild of Greg & Lindsay Rowlands, who also sponsored this new initiative to help promote the THFF. The competition proved to be very successful and attracted over 60 top quality submissions from all over the UK.
