Tonight you can get ready for the folk festival by joining in at the Headland Folk Club over in the Duke of Cleveland, Church Walk on the headland.

Then continue the build up by going to the Nursery Inn in Hopps Street, Hartlepool, to visit with the Pools Folk and Acoustic Music Club on Monday, 12 October 2015.

And the last scheduled local session prior to the festival is over at the Causeway Inn in Stranton, Hartlepool, when the Foggy Furze Folk Club will have their regular weekly session on Tuesday, 13 October 2015.
The festival begins on Friday, 16 October 2015 in St Hilda’s Church at 6.00 pm and there are other events in St Mary’s and the Duke Of Cleveland on the official programme that evening. The fringe begins at 9.00 pm in the Pot House (The Harbour of Refuge for those who are from outside the area) with a big shanty sing. For all details on the programme please check it out on www.hartlepoolfolkfest.co.uk.
Unfortunately, the festival will be over by the time I write for you again but you can get a regular folkie fix (cos you’ll need one after the splurge of the festival) by visiting your three local clubs, as outlined above, and be welcomed back into the fold every other Friday in the case of the Headland Folk Club but weekly in the case of both the Pools Folk and Acoustic Music Club and the Foggy Furze Folk Club. There you can re-live your enjoyment of the festival and move forward into the folk fraternity with new found instrumental skills or wish to perform.

The FFFC meets at the Causeway Inn, Stranton, Hartlepool each Tuesday, beginning at 8.00 pm, where it’s £1 for a singaround or £2 on a guest night. You can catch up on what’s happening by going to www.foggyfurzefolk.com or chat to me by leaving a message on kay@foggyfurzefolk.com. You’re always welcome at any of the clubs so get yourself along there.
