The Maghull Folk Club also known as
Maghull Folk & Acoustic 

has been running since 1982 on Tuesday evenings,
before that  it was known as St Goerges Folk Club
 which started in 1973
 
The club held at  the
MCA
604 Green Lane, Maghull, L31 2JH



Most Tuesdays the club commences at 8.pm prompt unless stated*
Doors open at 7.30pm

Singers, Musicians & Poets most welcome and if you don't
sing or play an instrument, just come along to listen.
We are a friendly group


Most Tuesdays are singers nights where floor singer / performers are invited to
do a few songs,  tunes or poems.
The  evening is run as open mic style and once a month we have a singaround
where the chairs are placed roughly in a circle
for those who do not wish to perform behind the microphone.

Being mainly a singers club we have occasional main guest evenings plus have spots
for our members  and also singers  from other clubs who are invited to do an
extended performance for us.

The club is more like an extended family like many other clubs too.
Singer, musicians & poets most welcome,
if you don't sing or play an instrument just come along to listen.
So if yo fancy popping along on a Tuesday evening you'll b e made most welcome.

The club is run on a rota basis for the
various host residents
 to run the evening.
