Newport Folk Club
Huw Williams

We are blessed with great musicians and glorious voices spanning a range of folk and acoustic genres…and our Open Nights are feasts of diverse music, poetry recitals and tunes. The club’s patron is the renowned singer-songwriter, broadcaster and all-round entertainer Huw Williams (above).

Pictured below are a selection of members and performers you might expect to see on an Open Night. Just click on the VIDEOS page where we’ve put together some compilation videos of our members and visitors performing.

The music on our Thursday Open Nights will start from around 8.30pm. The dates of our guest artistes will be shown on the GUESTS page, otherwise Thursday is an Open Night. Entry to Open Nights is £2.50.

We aim to give spots to as many singers as possible, and as a rough guide you’ll probably get to perform two items…maybe three at the discretion of the Compere. We have a great sound system and a rota of excellent sound engineers. If you’re new to the club and want to play, arrive by 8pm for the best chance of getting on the list. And remember, you’re among friends.
