NEW     ***     DFC ONLINE ZOOM SINGAROUND    ***     NEW

For some months now, Dartford Folk Club has been running an online Singaround on a Tuesday evening at 8pm.
Hosted by one of our regulars, the sessions have proved very successful. These weekly sessions are open to all acoustic-based musicians and singers, just like the floor singers at our club and,
if you are missing the club as an audience member we already have some DFC members who come just to listen. Either way, a very warm welcome is always guaranteed!

Details are sent out weekly to a mailing list, held by the organiser, but there is no pressure to join in every time!

If you would like to be included on our mailing list, please email:    hawleymkm@aol.com    with your name and email address, and this will be passed on to our Singaround host.

'STAY SAFE'     'PROTECT THE NHS'     'STAY ALERT'     'CONTROL THE VIRUS'     'SAVE LIVES'


Unsurprisingly, we have been unable to host any of the wonderful guests who were due to perform at the club between mid-March and the beginning of September 2020,
and, for each artist, it continues to be an extremely difficult and financially worrying time.
Most of these acts have now been rescheduled to next year when we hope for brighter and more musical times.
Some are waiting until there is a clearer picture of how the leisure and entertainment sectors can re-emerge safely from this situation.

More of our autumn artists, due in October and November, have also chosen to reschedule. Please check our    GUEST LIST FOR 2020    for further details.

We are in regular touch with our venue, which has opened with excellent social-distancing measures in place but, for now, there is no entertainment.
The DWMC offers its members and associate members, along with their guests, a very warm welcome and a great range of real ales and ciders!
We will continue to liaise with them and performers 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 nearly five years since our very dear friend Pam Colls died and just five 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
