Grayshott is a village which lies on the borders of Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire.

It is just off the main A3 trunk road, about 40 miles South of London and 30 miles North of Portsmouth, near the World famous Hindhead Tunnel (that is shut almost as often as it is open......).

 

The Folk Club started up in January 2011 and our spiritual home and the venue we use most often is:

Grayshott Village Hall, Headley Road, GRAYSHOTT,               Nr. HINDHEAD, Surrey GU26 6TZ

Grayshott Village Hall has ample parking around it and is fully wheelchair accessible.

 

We also use other venues nearby for our events, including; 

Grayshott Social Club, Hill Road, Grayshott,

Nr. HINDHEAD, Surrey GU26 6HL

and

St. Alban's Church, Tilford Road,

HINDHEAD, Surrey GU26 6RB

 

The main aim of Grayshott Folk Club is to offer quality live music at affordable prices.

There are no membership, subscription or joining fees.

EVERYONE of all ages is welcome to ALL of our gigs.

We pride ourselves in introducing Folk perfomers from all over the World to our audiences, as well as giving performance opportunities to local musicians.

We have often spotted "the next big thing" ahead of time and we sometimes venture off-piste with gigs by Pop, Rock, Prog Rock and Blues bands.

 

Expect the unexpected at Grayshott Folk Club!
