Dear Girl Friday,
I have just looked up your Website and your statement as to bookings is very unfriendly to say the least. Some of us go out for free or expenses or a percentage of the take. Some of us are willing to help Folk Clubs out who are struggling. To slam the door on new comers is hardly welcoming.Or am I misreading it?

Great News Folks


The Folk Club has a brand new venue, and it's not too far away from the old one. Lovely Pete has arranged for us to go to his local, The Foresters in Wilmington. It's address is 235 Dartford High Street, but that's at the pretty end!

We start there on Monday 4th May. I know it's a Bank Holiday, but please make an effort to be there. We want to create a good impression. I have spoken to the landlady, Katy, she seems very nice and keen to have us there. We'll probably coming straight from Rochester Sweeps Festival.

Thats the Google Map and directions from Eynsford
Will link to that but I don't want to lose this message off my clipboard yet

So,let's make a date for Mondays at 8.30 starting with a singaround .


Sue

That was where Phil scored. He had a friendly pub, good food, and the more than occasional speciality. He could cook as well, when between chefs. Although the food is cooked in house still, it does lack that special touch. The walkers will be so hungry from their exertions on Monday, they will probably welcome anything I guess.

To do well out of food, given where they are, they will need to offer something special. My sister has been taking me round pubs in Oxfordshire with locally sourced products, such as jugged hare (I missed that one, due to teaching the next day), cooked by real foodie chefs. Hmm.

The money thing could be a hinderance I guess, but very few landlords are up for actually paying for guests. In that respect they have treated us not unfairly. Should we get to play in somewhere where the bar is the only place to play, then we go down the singaround route for a while. To have guests we really need to have a seperate room where we can charge admission. Whatever happens, we have to see exactly who will come along to a new venue. This will determine the type of club it's to grow into. Hopefully everyone will come over, and we'll pick up some different ones.

There's going to be a bit of a problem, isn't there, if any new venue wants to know why we have been stopped from using the existing place? If we say that it's because they want to build up the food side, fine, but if they ask around the publican's grapevine and are told we haven't brought in much money, could be tricky. We've got the argument about difficulty of access, especially in winter, on our side, of course.

I just had a phone call from Fran. They don't want us up there on Monday because of the hoardes of people that are going to be eating late into the evening, both inside and outside the pub. I asked can't we sit outside, but she said no.If we hadn't got guests on the last 2 nights, I'd have cancelled it completely !

Pete... Wilmington would be fine for us, coming from Orpington and Belvedere. Shall we say, anywhere in a ten mile radius of Orpington, preferably in a village ?

It was a very good night, apart from my sausage and mash which was uncharacteristically not something I want to repeat. A pity. It's been a very friendly club which has helped me get back into folk after a very long break.

It was the best night since we took over the running of it. Great to see John The Trucker after a couple of years. Still, it was not enough to keep the club going. It seems they, like lots of past venues, see food as the way to go, and want to open the restaurant up on Mondays. We are looking for another venue in the area where we can at least have a singaround, with the occasional guest.Please come to our session on Easter Monday, and to our last two guest nights, April 20th, and 27th. Watch this space for news.

Researching car possibilities. Any offers of transport gratefully received meanwhile. Thanks Phil for running last night, and for the offer of transport to F and H next Monday. We are asking all interested parties to post their opinion on the Club's future. Here are the main points we need to consider.

1/ Fran and Geoff can't afford to keep sponsoring our guest nights, but have agreed to do so until end of April. We will then have to find a new venue if we want to continue as before,.

2/ Would you like it to continue as a singers club at the same place?

3/ Would you like it to continue as a singerss club at a different venue? Somewhere more accessible.

4/ Would you like to have one guest per month at an affordable fee?

5/ We could try to find another venue with a private room, so we could charge an entrance fee.

6/ You could all transfer to our more accessible Friday Folk Club in Orpington with no obligation to turn up every week.

7/ If we decide to stay in the Sevenoaks area, where most of our support is, would someone else commit to looking after the finances and run evenings?
If you are a member of Mudcat you can send me a message via the pm facility. If not, and it's easy to join up: you can message me here

I agree, very entertaining, and there was a good feeling about the pub last night. I will be booking them for Orpington Friday Folk. Alas they will not get a paid gig at Fox And Hounds now that funding is being withdrawn. Guest nights will continue to be sponsored by the pub up to end of April. Last guest night April 27th.

Discussion on club's future will take place at the pub on Monday 30th March. Be there if you can.

Sorry I missed it. Since I had the survey on my then intended domicile, I have not been sleeping well. And I was teaching Tuesday, so a late night seemed a bad idea, especially as it seemed likely that I would drop off somewhere along the lane.

Somehow I thought that you'd said you'd be missing, as did Steve. Trouble was - so was everyone else. Ty came along at hal;f-time to play with the duo, and did a couple of songs. The audience was sparce and comprised friends, relatives and band followers. It seems they'd all come out for a free night's entertainment. It was like getting blood out of stones!
