Have enjoyed several very very good concerts and this great little folk club and would highly recommend. Take careful note of your concert venue though as it does move around the Downend area.

Thanks Tigi, glad you've enjoyed the events you've been to. Just two venues... our regular nights are at Frenchay Village Hall, with occasional concerts at Christ Church Downend. All details are on our website.

Really excellent acts & supports for a fairly young club. Very friendly, knowledgeable & appreciative audience, and of course, a raffle!! Sometimes the gigs are held in a nearby church, which also has a lovely atmosphere - just go!!!

This club has real soul. It puts on great acts and has a real community feel, selling local ale. I've been several times and the music has been great, with some top names in folk music.
