Mondays at 8:30 pm, The Bridge Hotel, Newcastle, NE1 1RQ


The Bridge Folk Club, previously known as Folk Song & Ballad, is one of the two oldest clubs in the country, operating in the Bridge Hotel, in Castle Square, right opposite the Keep on the Newcastle end of the High Level Bridge. You can get to the Bridge very easily by train, metro and bus, and there is ample parking for cars.

Every Monday night you are guaranteed a plethora of fine singers with material ranging from mainly traditional to contemporary. We have had songs from Sweden, Germany, Spain, Japan, Australia, North America, England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Everyone who comes along is encouraged, but never forced, to participate whether it be a song, poem, monologue, or just join in the choruses.

Every night is run as a singers night, except for the Rising Star nights mentioned below. Admission is free. The club does not operate on Bank holidays, Christmas or New Year.

Liquid refreshment abounds with guest beers and a fine selection of real ales from both micro breweries and long established favourites, ably purveyed by the pub staff.
