Sharp's Folk Club


Following the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions, the club reopened on Tuesday 7th September 2012. Initially we are meeting in the hall called Storrow, rather than the bar, as it is a larger space with better ventillation. COVID mitigation measures include:

Sharp's Folk Club normally meets every Tuesday (except in August) at Cecil Sharp House, 2 Regents Park Road, London, NW1 7AY; my Cecil Sharp House page describes how to get there.

Most evenings at Sharps are singers' nights, which means that anyone is welcome to volunteer to sing, play an instrument, tell a story, etc. Evenings are run by one of a rota of MCs who invites singers and musicians to perform in turn. About once a month a guest artist is booked; the programme lists forthcoming bookings.

Each evening begins at 8pm. Admission is 4.00 per person (3.50 for performers) on singers' nights, and on guest nights usually 6.00 (5.00).

For news of the club see our Twitter feed The real Sharps folk club or our Facebook page Sharps Folk Club.

During Covid-19 restrictions the club met online every Tuesday evening. Videos of these events are availabele on our YouTube channel.

At various times Time Out magazine has said of Sharps:

This long-standing, friendly and enjoyable club.

Hugely enjoyable evenings of song and music making.

One of the friendliest, worthiest traditional folk clubs left in London.

In 1991 the club produced a cassette tape An evening at Sharp's which aimed to present a typical evening at the club, featuring most of the club's regular singers at the time of recording.
