Covid-19 Update

The Nettlebed Folk Club nights are currently suspended and we will follow the advice from the Government on when to reopen. 

We are working hard to reschedule events in date order and thank everyone for their patience while we do this. 

As you can imagine, the scale of this is taking an unprecedented toll on our small team of volunteers. We know these are incredibly difficult times for everyone, but you can support us by continuing to buy tickets for our shows when the restrictions are lifted and if you are in a position to make a donation to the club to help us get through this difficult period we would be enormously grateful.

New – 23 September...

We have been working with our patron Phil Beer and Chris While & Julie Matthews to present two more online live concerts via private YouTube links.

The first will be with Phil Beer
Monday 12 October from 8 until 10pm.

Tickets are £16.50 + booking fee and the secure ticket link is: website

More info at: website

Phil Beer is one-half of the multi-award-winning acoustic folk and roots powerhouse Show of Hands but he’s also in demand in his own right as a captivating solo performer.

He’ll be delivering his unique recipe of rich vocals and flawless musicianship across a range of stringed instruments.

“A Phil Beer gig is one spent in the company of
a true craftsman, a master musician and consummate performer”
Spiral Earth.

The second will be with Chris While & Julie Matthews
Monday 26 October from 7.30 until 9.30pm 

Tickets are £15.00 and the secure ticket link is: website

Chris While (vocals, guitar, banjo, dulcimer, bodhran and percussion) & Julie Matthews (vocals, piano, guitar, mandolin and bouzouki) are stunning singers, songwriters, musicians and performers whose energy and commitment to their craft and their audience is boundless. They have been nominated ten times in the BBC Radio 2 Folk music awards in the 'Best Song, Best Duo, Best Live Act' categories and won Best Duo in 2009.

“Chris and Julie are on top form and
can't put a foot wrong”

The Folk Club will not be handling the ticketing. It is being done through the artists’ ticket agencies. This way we are not divulging any of your details to a third party which would require your permission.

We would ask that for those who can afford it, to buy the appropriate number of tickets to reflect the people who are going to enjoy the shows. Thank you. 

We hope that you will enjoy these shows which will also be helping both the Artists and the Folk Club in these difficult times.
