The Brick Kiln Garden Centre on the Bognor Road near Chichester have restarted their folk events. The next one is on 2nd July at 3.30 (doors open at 3.00). The guest is Pete morton and tickets are 12.99 which includes a "Classic Cream Tea". Tickets are avalable at the tills (if you are local), via their website, or by 'phone on 1243 756175.


Also a little outside our borders, the Chichester Folk Song Club meets every Monday at the Chichester Inn in West Street. Usually once a month, it is a Guest Night; the May guests will be JIB - Jim Ingrid and Barry, on the 131th. Remember there is an informal session at 7.45 until the club proper opens at 8.15. See their website for more information and to look at their "latest poster" for the diary of events.


Local singer/songwriter DiElle presents The DiElle Trio - John Gleadall, Chris Wood and herself - in a concert at The North Boarhunt Social Club, Trampers Lane, (home also of the Forest Folk folk club) on the 10th May (the originally planned concert there on January 27th was cancelled due to illness). 7.30 (doors open at 7.00). Tickets also £10, via DiElle's website; CD "Promise of the Day" also available.


We have moved many of the venues we have been including on this page to our Folk Clubs and Arts Centres dairy. We hope in future to include a few more venues in and around our area. This change is also reflected in our journal 'Solent Waves', as now we do not have limitations of numbers of pages and printing/distribution costs, we can make the diaries longer.


Loads of events at Halsway Manor - see their website for a timetable and to book; also lots of details on these and other events in the area on the SAD Folk website
