There has been a folk club in Mansfield for over 50 years.

Its venue has changed many times, but since October 2011, its home has been upstairs at the Black Bull Pub on Woodhouse Road in Mansfield, and a warm welcome is extended to all.

We meet every Monday evening throughout the year (including Bank Holidays). Doors open 7.45pm for prompt 8.30pm start and we aim to finish at 11pm.

A varied programme runs throughout the year with:-
  • Acoustic "Singers & Musician Nights" open to whoever turns up;
  • "Feature Nights" where 2x20 mins are given over to the named performer - the rest of the evening being opened up to floor spots;
  • Monthly "Guest Night" with main artist + named support act.
There is a break halfway through the evening for a few sandwiches (included in admission fee) and a raffle.
