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, 

St. Alban's Church, Hindhead and Haslemere Educational Museum.

 

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!

CARAVAN

St John's Church, FARNCOMBE, Nr. Godalming GU

Last year's sell-out gig with Caravan at St. John's was a huge success and proved to be a cracking night of Prog Rock music, despite a power cut. These guys are soounding better than ever and Pye and the crew will transport us all back to "The Land of The Grey and Pink" in the wink of an eye. Tickets are already being snapped up for this repeat performance.

ALTAN

Altan put on a truly memorable performance for us at St.Alban's Church in May 2015 and a sell-out crowd heard some of the most talented purveyors of Traditional Irish Folk music playing at the top of their game. they've been all over the World again since that night but they'll set their SatNavs so they can find us again. It's a beautiful setting and you will be stunned at the quality of Altan's  performance. Join us for a very special evening.

St. George's Day Barn Dance with: JIGALOTS

Due to public demand, we held our very first Barn Dance

back in November 2015 and it proved to be so popular and successful, we decided to give it another go. This time our Barn Dance coincides with St. George's Day and the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's demise.

We invite dancers of all ages and abilities to join us and our band and caller (Bridget Flett) will be very sympathetic and supportive of those of us (like myself), who have no co-ordination and no idea what to do.

The emphasis will very much be on fun.
