South Shields Folk Club
most Sunday nights at

The Customs House
Mill Dam
South Shields
NE33 1ES
Doors open at 7.00pm for a 7.30 start.


SSFC resident singers' and musicians' material is mostly traditional, as are most of the guest performers we book, but we do like to hear other kinds of music as well, and very much appreciate visitors who perform contemporary, country, blues, or their own material. Even when our guest diary is full floor singers are especially welcome, as are new resident singers and musicians. It'll cost at least 6 each for admission to a guest night and 3 each for admission to a resident singers' and musicians' night. Membership is free and once you're on the list you'll get email updates etc., and you'll be at the beginning of the queue for special events tickets which may also be a special (probably more expensive) price.

n.b.  Musicians who bring their own electrical equipment/amplification are required by The Customs House to have a PAT certificate for any such apparatus.
