NUNEATON FOLK CLUB
THE CROWN INN, BOND STREET, NUNEATON, WARWICKSHIRE CV11 4BX
FIRST WEDNESDAY OF EVERY MONTH.
Nuneaton was until recently the largest town in the Midlands (pop. 81,900) without a regular established Folk Club. This new venture brings Folk,Blues and Acoustic music back into the Town Centre each month. The Crown is a CAMRA-affiliated pub, adjacent to Nuneaton Railway Station. Nuneaton Bus Station is opposite and with its central position, taxis are plentiful and cheap. Evening parking is available (£1, 6am-8am) nearby.
Offering free WiFi and a discount to any CAMRA members, The Crown boasts TEN Hand pumps, dispensing seven real ales and three draught ciders. Guest Ales are changed weekly.
Nuneaton Folk Club meets at The Crown each month, in a large upstairs Concert Room. Featured guests usually take the main spot. Floor spots can be booked by prior appointment, on a first come, first served basis. The new club is a joint venture between popular Warwickshire Folk Band Black Parrot Seaside (who host and compère the venue) and The Crown's landlord Julian Harkins. After running another celebrated music venue, “The Nags Head”, Julian has since built at The Crown, a nationally recognised reputation for Live Music of all kinds. In the past this has included occasional Folk concerts- (Shkayla, Quill and Tir Na Nog have all played there). Now it's time to bring Folk home for good.
