SUNDAY 1ST AUGUST 2021
*** PLANS FOR RE-OPENING ***


Our plan is to run informal singarounds on TUESDAYS 10TH, 17TH, 24TH and 31ST AUGUST 2021.
and, if Government restrictions are not reimposed, we hope to welcome back the first of our booked artists on TUESDAY 7TH SEPTMEBER 2021.

The team will tweak the seating layout to enable folk to choose if or how they would like to socially-distance. This will mean all reserved seating will be abandoned,
something that was introduced many years ago and, ever since, has caused a lot of angst amongst regulars and visitors alike!

Admission will still be £7 for members and £9/£10 for guests depending on the act.
There is no need to renew your membership: this will be rolled over to Oct 2022 for existing members and we will continue to accept new memberships at £10.

For the first few weeks we don't see the need to restrict numbers as it is likely to take a while for folk to come back and feel comfortable socialising indoors again.

The DWMC has lifted most restrictions but its staff will continue to wear face masks. The folk club can't and won't impose its own restrictions
but we do encourage you to continue to take the precautions that make you feel safe and of course respect others who may wish to socially distance and wear masks, etc.
When possible, we will leave fire exit doors open to allow extra ventilation.

We will also be asking everyone to return their own glasses to the main bar at the end of the evening. Please do not leave them on the table to be collected!

Looking forward to welcoming back our Dartford Folk Club family and friends!

PAM & ALAN COLLS

It is over five years since our very dear friend Pam Colls died and a year since her loving husband, Alan passed away.
Founders of the Dartford Folk Club, they ran the Club together for over 40 years, booking an amazing variety of artists within the Folk genre.
When it is safe to gather again, a celebration of their lives will be held to remember their friendship, achievements and contributions to the music world.

The Dartford Folk Club is now managed by a small team of original members in memory of and as a legacy to Pam & Alan's love for music.
