UPDATE: 22/07/21


On 19th July 2021, we moved to Stage 4 of HMG's "road map" out of the pandemic so our Merry Hell gig on Friday 6th August 2021,

goes ahead as "normal" and marks a return to our spiritual home base of Grayshott Village Hall for the first time since

29th February 2020.


We'd love you to join us for some upbeat live Folk/Rock music, that will lift your spirits and put you in the holiday mood.........but don't leave it too long to order your tickets as we've already sold more than half of them.


Friday 6th August 2021 @ 7.30pm




"Joyful Folk-Rock with messages of hope for today"



Festivals all over the country will be welcoming Merry Hell to their line ups this Summer. Wickham, Beardy, Towersey, Cornwall and Lyme are just a few of the festivals that the band will be taking their feelgood vibes to and here at Grayshott Folk Club, we will be welcoming them back with open arms. They last appeared at Grayshott in July 2019 and although so much has happened since then, we were very keen to get them back at the earliest opportunity. 


Despite the 2020 lockdown, Merry Hell managed to record a brand new album and release a new single. Both proved to be very welcome distractions and a great pick-me-up for so many people. So much so, that their album "Emergency Lullabies" got terrific reviews and Merry Hell were awarded Best Folk Act of 2020 by Folking.com Awards.


Check out Merry Hell's 2020 lockdown single "When We Meet Again" right here:



If you want to leave your troubles behind and come out for a "reet good night out", you can't do better than seeing Merry Hell play live at Grayshott Folk Club.

Katherine Priddy/Jon Wilks

September 26th 2020


Zoe Wren + Hannah Dorman

October 22nd 2020


We thank all of these performers for putting on excellent shows despite the obvious challenges that Covid-19 presented.

In addition, we would like to thank all of those punters whose determination and support made our efforts so worthwhile.


Postponed gigs in 2020, included:


Siobhan Miller, Bob Fox, Oysters 3, Daphne's Flight, John Blek,

Tannahill Weavers, Fara, Tim Edey, Jonny Coppin,

Honey & The Bear and Becky Mills.


We fully intend to reschedule their gigs just as soon as we can.



Sadly, owing to continuing Covid-19 restrictions in 2021, we have so far had to postpone planned gigs with:


The Bully Wee Band, The Leisure Society, John Blek, The Way Down Wanderers (due to be on tour from the USA), McGoldrick, McCusker & Doyle and Daphne's Flight.


We also intend to re-arrange gigs with these performers,

IF and WHEN possible. Please keep checking back here as new information will appear here just as soon as we confirm things.

A little bit of Grayshott Folk Club history:


Grayshott Folk Club went live with our first ever gig on

22nd January 2011. The main aim of Grayshott Folk Club is to bring "quality live music at affordable prices " to Grayshott, which is a village near HINDHEAD in South-West Surrey.


We mostly host Folk bands/musicians and our past guests have included;


Altan, Ashley Hutchings/Blair Dunlop/Becky Mills, Belshazzar's Feast, Breabach, Coig, Jez Lowe & The Bad Pennies, Jon Wilks, Katherine Priddy, Lau, Merry Hell, O'Hooley & Tidow, Sam Carter/Sam Sweeney, Strawbs,The Bully Wee Band, The Churchfitters, The Young 'Uns and Tide Lines, amongst many others. 


We occasionally stray off-piste with a little bit of live Americana/Pop/Rock/Prog Rock music and

Caravan, Colin Blunstone & Band, Jarrod Dickenson, Joe Topping & Scott Poley, Linda Lewis, Mike d'Abo, Police Dog Hogan, The Christians and The Leisure Society have all played for us since we started out.


Basically, we do whatever we can, to keep it live, keep it local and to keep hungry musicians off our streets......


Our first choice venue is:

Grayshott Village Hall,

Headley Road,



Surrey GU26 6TZ


and from time to time, we also use


Grayshott Social Club, Hill Road, Grayshott,

Nr. HINDHEAD Surrey GU26 6HL


St. Alban's Church, Tilford Road,


as venues to host our live music events.


If you wish to buy tickets for our gigs, you can buy them in person from either:

Grayshott Post Office, Crossways Road, Grayshott GU26 6HJ


Haslemere Bookshop, High Street, HASLEMERE, Surrey GU27


Alternatively, you can call Des O'Byrne on 01428 607096

or e-mail me at: grayshottfolkclub@btinternet.com

Our future gigs will be announced, as and when they are confirmed and once we have found a way to ensure we can put on gigs that are Covid-19 safe.
