As the new landlord of the Alma Tavern needs our current venue for other events on Fridays, he kindly offered to accommodate us on an alternative night. But after consulting our members, it was decided that it's best for the club to keep it on Friday. So we've found a new home for now just over the road.
Friday November 24 is our last night at:
From December 1 we will be at:
There will be a few minor adjustments at our new venue:

Some of the best chorus singing we've ever heard, and we've played nearly all the folk clubs in BritainNapper & Bliss
"The Somers" is named after a (long gone) Worcestershire pub where the club originally started meeting over 30 years ago. Traditional music in all its varieties has always been celebrated at the club, but is by no means an exclusive requirement for performers. There are certainly plenty of beautiful choruses, ballads, and rousing shanties etc. from English, Scottish, Welsh, Irish, American and even French traditions that are enjoyed on Friday folk nights. But you're just as likely to hear contemporary and self-penned songs in the folk idiom, acoustic blues, spirituals, musical hall and humorous numbers, as well as instrumental tunes played on guitar, fiddle, harmonica, flute, whistle, concertina, and so on. Poetry and spoken word performances are also contributed. All kinds of folk are welcome!
