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


Our club room to the right side of the Old House At Home is newly refurbished - new radiators, beautifully restored parque floor, some new furnishings and probably the best pub loos in Portsmouth. We have had many very good nights since the re-opening by our new landlords.

Cone and join us, you will find that all comers receive a good Broadside welcome.


Wendy Arnold

Some of you will remember Wendy Arnold who used to visit the club some years ago with her partner Robin. Sadly, Wendy passed away on the evening of Wednesday, 28th February at Q.A. Hospital, surrounded by her loved ones. Wendy had battled for many years with a rare lung condition. She and her partner Robin performed their beautiful songs at a number of clubs in the area and Wendy will be missed by all who knew her.

Start time: Ideally please try to arrive anytime from 7.30pm for an 8pm kickoff. You are of course welcome to arrive later and your first turn will be in the next round.

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.
