Since our founding in July 2003 by local folkie John Mills, Minchinhampton Folk Club has given enormous pleasure to thousands of singers, players, listeners and joiners-in from the four corners of the British Isles as well as further afield. We call ourselves a folk club because people understand how folk clubs work, but we are by no means just about folk music. Each Thursday night from about 8.15, the rafters ring to the sound of modern and traditional folk, blues, country, jazz, classical, bluegrass – in fact, all kinds of music.

  At MFC we believe in encouraging new performers and fresh talent – just turn up, introduce yourself and play. We don’t expect you to be accomplished, just to do your best and enter into the spirit of the evening.  

   Until the end of May 2016 we will continue to meet at the Baptist Church Café Lounge in Tetbury Street, a couple of hundred yards from the High Street. The doors open around 7.30 and the music starts at 8.15 and finishes at about 11. Admission is just £2, for everyone.  Bring your own food and drink.


Join us from 8.15 every Thursday from 2.6.16 at

the Old Crown, off Stratford Road, Paganhill, GL5 4AZ

(We'll be at the Cafe Lounge until May 26)
