It is hard to believe that we have been closed now for 17 weeks...
17 acts that could not perform at Dartford Folk Club and, for each guest, no doubt a very difficult and financially worrying time.
To help support our artists, I have continued to buy CDs from each of them and the club will hold several raffles when we are back to our weekly events.

Where possible, these gigs have now been rescheduled to next year along with our remaining bookings for July.
A few artists were either on tour or planning to tour quite extensively so, understandably, rearranging these gigs will take more time
and may not be possible until there is a clearer picture of how the leisure and entertainment sectors can re-emerge safely from this situation.
A couple of our autumn artists have also chosen to reschedule. Please check our    GUEST LIST FOR 2020    for further details.

We are in touch with our venue and, as I am sure many of you are aware, it is now open 'as a pub' with excellent social-distancing measures in place.
For now, there is no entertainment but they offer members of the DWMC a very warm welcome and a great range of real ales and ciders!

When it is appropriate, we will liaise with them on the best and safest way forward to enable a return to our own programme of events.
Inevitably this will take time, with some changes and restrictions to be considered, before we are able to host performers again.

Dartford Folk Club is a well-established social community of friends. Please do continue to keep in touch with one another.

PAM & ALAN COLLS

It is over four years since our very dear friend Pam Colls died and just three months 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 continues to run as usual, with a small team of original members, in memory of and as a legacy to their love for music.

For further information, bookings and enquiries please contact Marj Mitchell by email at:    hawleymkm@aol.com
