Folk Nights at the White Hart

Folk NightOn the first Tuesday of every month, the White Hart in the High Street holds its Folk Night. They are all Open Nights, welcoming all comers to sing, play or listen.
Each guest performer plays two half hour sets in the evening, giving plenty of time for songs from the floor. 
Entry fees for Folk clubs can be annoyingly complicated (performing/ non performing, member/ non-member etc.) so we keep it simple by making it free but collecting for charities at appropriate times, or collecting for our guest performers on their nights.






Let Us Entertain You...

Wesley House Restaurant and Wine Bar & Grill, High Street Winchcombe.  A series of events are taking place at The Wesley House Restaurant & the Wine Bar and Grill this year. Check out our calendar and read on for further details.
