Welcome to the home of Loughton's not for profit Folk Club.

We meet every Thursday from 7:30pm at Loughton Club, 8 Station Road, Loughton, IG10 4NX. Loughton Club is next to Topps Tiles – close to the high road for bus stops, and a few hundred yards from Loughton tube station. There is parking front and rear and the inexpensive bar usually serves real ale!
 
Entrance from £3.00 (£1 discount for Loughton Club members)

We look forward to welcoming you

We’re not just a load of old folkies! - We sing and play all kinds of acoustic music and especially wish to promote and showcase unsigned talent both old and young!
 
You’re welcome to come and listen - or you can join in and enjoy:

Tune Sessions with our resident Lopping Band - Visiting musicians please come and join in – ask for a tunesheet.

Ukulele Sessions – Bring your Uke! A very warm welcome is extended to all Ukulele players from near and far. If you’re new to the Uke we’ll be very pleased to help you get started.

Singalong Chorus Sessions with John Hart – if you have a song that everyone can join in please let John know.

Perform for us! Floor Spots If you sing or play acoustic music please come and perform for us. Floor spots are limited so we tend to favour more competent performers and those we haven’t seen before. We'd like to maintain a good standard of performance - we know that nearly everyone fluffs their lines and plays bum notes from time to time so we're not expecting perfection. Plenty just come to listen and there's nothing wrong with that!


We also help raise money for good causes - Nearly £6,000 since we started in October 2010.

Why don't we have a singaround or an open Mic session?

Three out of our four nearest clubs have singarounds or open sessions so we think it is a good idea to be different.

We set out to give more competent performers mini features of at least two 3 song sets, so we have a better chance to appreciate them properly - and we are still able to offer a few floor spots on the night too (though if you want to be sure of a go please contact me in advance). By arranging these features in advance we're able to give good billing to our performers on our home page.

Much as we're open about being a little selective, so far we have only rarely turned anyone down for a floor spot as the standard has been great.

We look forward to welcoming you
