Breaking news! The festival is ON THE MOVE. Again!! The Holly Bush have made it clear to the folk club and a very longstanding folk music session that they are no longer welcome there. The management want it as a restaurant and was very rude to the people in the session who then posted it on TripAdvisor. I went to see the new people at THE SWAN who have agreed to have us back for the Winter festival to see how it goes. They no longer have bedrooms and  have blocked that area off and they have put a bar at the end of the function room but I've said we won't want the bar. The function room has been refurbished and looks nicer now. The ticket office will be in the area near the back window rather than under the stairs. We will still use the Unionist club and the Church room so I'm sure we will be fine. If you could announce the move to other folkies please I'd be very grateful as our publicity had gone out with the Holly Bush address. See you soon and many thanks for your support. Marje
Alcester Folk Club
Greetings folk club enthusiasts.
We have had a lot of great evenings at the Hollybush, however the landlord has made it known that he wishes to use the space as a dining room so there is no room for the folk club any more. All is not lost however and the organiser of the folk club has decided to move the venue to his home. This follows in the tradition of the very early folk clubs and leads to a more intimate and relaxed atmosphere (warmer too usually) so here are the details of the new venue:- 89 Salford Close Redditch B98 7UL 07795 022779 Your host will be Dave James. Tea and coffee will be free. If alcohol is required bring your own. This starts Saturday the 17th of December and will be on the first and third Saturdays of the month.
