The Broadside Folk Club in Portsmouth - Wednesday evening singarounds for acoustic and folk music

Welcome to the Broadside Folk Club, Portsmouth

Folk and Acoustic Music at the Broadside in Lockway Road, Portsmouth


Acoustic Folk Music Singaround in Portsmouth

Come and join in the fun

We are an open and friendly club welcoming all styes, abilities and interpretations of what constitutes folk music. Come and enjoy a warm welcome, whether playing a tune, singing a song or just listening. The room is open from 7.30ish onwards and we start at 8pm. Come early and introduce yourself and meet some of the current perfomers. There is no charge at present though we may be asking for a donation towards coal in the winter.

See you soon

John and Sue and all the Broadside 'artists' : ))

Progress on the venue

We have now dropped the question of a move as our numbers are increasing again following some improvements to our room and toilet facilities. Most people voting were for remaining and as conditions have improved a good deal we are back to our old routine. There is still some way to go but we hope that as the landlord settles in further improvement will be made. Come along and help get us back to the glory days.

Start time: Please arrive ready for a prompt 8.00pm start. You are of course welcome to arrive later in which case you will get a turn in the round following your arrival.

Our format is a singaround and the M/C usually passes from person to person around the room.

Our Music is folk - traditional and modern - so we welcome singers of folk songs, players of folk tunes, acoustic instruments, single person or joint offerings. We do try to keep our idenitity as an acoustic folk music club.

Come and join us. At the half time break, take the opportunity to socialise and discuss music.

The bar is available all through the evening - a ring of the bell will bring one of the bar staff through from the main bar to the function room.
