The club meets weekly on Wednesday nights from 8.30 pm and provides a venue within central Surrey (Dorking) where the very best traditional and acoustic musicians, small bands and singers can be heard, from the UK and often from further afield (USA, Australia). The club was formed in May 1976 and although it has been through a few metamorphoses, name changes and has had different venues over the years, it has always been successful in bringing acoustic and traditional music to Dorking since that time. We aim to keep folk and acoustic music live and available and to support live artists – they need you and you are always guaranteed a great evening’s entertainment.
There is a door charge for entry, which varies according to the programme. An annual membership fee gives a reduction on the entry charge to all guest nights, but you don’t have to be a member or pay membership fee to come along on any evening.
The Club also showcases rising new talent, so you often get the opportunity to see the stars of tomorrow here today.
For the audience each Singers' Night is unique and provides a great evening's entertainment of surprising quality and variety. Admission is just £3 (covering the cost of room hire).
If you have not attended a Singers' Night we encourage you to give it a try. We look forward to seeing you soon!! But these nights can get busy, so if you are keen to perform, please arrive in good time & let the door person know.
