Format: We are acoustic, unplugged and mostly blackboard. Floor singers, reciters
and storytellers are always welcome. Every few months we have a themed evening;
preference is given to those whose sets reflect the theme. At least once a month we feature a
40 minute 'Special Guest' spot, drawing on performers from other folk clubs, Red Hill Folk regulars
or touring performers from interstate and overseas.
Free supper: As there is no facility at the venue for meals, each week
one of the regulars brings in supper. The suppers have been creative and delicious, from cakes,
pikelets, dips and sandwiches to soup and crusty bread. We take a 20 minute ‘talk and supper
break’ mid-way through the evening which creates an enjoyable, party-like atmosphere.
Our Room: We meet in a side room off the main Old Bowler’s Bar. It’s
intimate, with low lighting and good acoustics.
