The Folk Nights and concerts happen at the Milford on Sea Community Centre in Sea Road. The Centre has a licensed bar with car parking next door.
Everyone is welcome, just come along and pay on the door. (or for shows, buy tickets at the Community Centre Box Office.)
Milford Folk Club was established in 2007 - more or less with a wing and a prayer. The organiser hadn’t been inside a folk club since the smoky dingy, hand over ear sessions of the 1960s but had always loved traditional music, both folk and blues. So, it was with these 60s type backroom of pubs clubs that Milford Folk Club set about running along the same lines.
Milford Folk Club was fortunate to attract the Goodthyme Brothers, Jim Palmer and Bill Hesp. Bill has stayed the course and is now the regular host and all time walking encyclopaedia of folk knowledge: he knows who wrote and recorded everything. Bill organises the evenings - usually a couple of songs from him, floor singers and guest singer.
One exciting ‘spin off’ is the regular Blues evenings organised by Bob Long. …………….
Milford Folk Club often attracts an audience of around 60 or even more.
