About Us

Barnsley Folk and Acoustic Night (aka Barnsley Folk Club) is a small friendly folk club that meets every Weds in the Upstairs Room at the Trades.

We start at 8.30pm where everyone is welcome to perform a song or two or just to listen.  It’s a bit like Open Mic, but with no pa.

Every few weeks there is a Guest Night (2 x 45min slots)

We believe that Folk Music should be open to everyone – there is no admission fee, just a collection during the break, £1 suggested for a Singers night, £5 for a guest night if you can afford it. We operate on a not for profit basis – all money collected goes towards paying the guests.

Occasional Sunday early doors gigs at the Old School House Venue (ex Polish Club).
