DOORS  OPEN
At 7.15pm for a 8.00pm start.

VENUE
All concerts are held at FALDINGWORTH MEMORIAL HALL LN8 3SE, which is in the centre of the village of Faldingworth on the A46, three miles from Market Rasen and nine miles from Lincoln.

Artists perform on a good sized stage and there is an excellent sound system controlled by our sound engineer Pete Wray ably abetted by Helen Wray.  Comfortable seats are provided in rows and you are guided to your designated seats on arrival, after purchasing your reserved ticket(s) at the door.  This door is situated at the front of the hall abutting the village pavement. YOU MAY RESERVE TICKETS FOR FUTURE PERFORMANCES at the door if you wish.

There are lots of regulars AND people who come just for one or two particular artists.  All are warmly welcomed.

BAR
A bar is provided at the back of the hall. The bar is open prior to the performance and during the intervals. Soft drinks, tea and coffee and various crisps are available.  Beer and lager is for sale (not draft) as is wine.

PARKING
Parking is free and available in a car park in front of the primary school which is situated on the bend nearly opposite to Faldingworth Memorial Hall.

DISABILITY ACCESS
Please contact Andy (see the top of this) who will reserve a parking place for you at the back of FALDINGWORTH MEMORIAL HALL.  This leads to the fire door/disability access at the back of the hall.


PERFORMANCE
There are two intervals and the performance starts with a thirty minute set from a semi -professional artist.  There is then an interval at the end of which the first set begins.  The evening finishes at approximately 11.00pm.

FALDINGWORTHLIVE
Andy Watkins books the artists, promotes their music and provides and sells the tickets and sits on the door. The bar, hospitality and ample raffle is provided by Faldingworth Memorial Hall Committee without whose effort and goodwill none of these concerts could happen.  

IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT OF AN ARTIST CANCELLATION (this has happened four times in forty-two years of folk music promoting!) EVERY EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO FIND A SUBSTITUTE OF OUR USUAL HIGH STANDARD - but it may take up to 24 hours, so we request your indulgence.(posted by Andy Watkins Saturday 17 October 2015.)

…..Christmas Event for 2018 is being hatched!





LINCOLNFOLK.COM for Folk-in-the-Cellar
is another venue run by Andy and held in Lincoln….AND HAS MOVED TO LINCOLN DRILL HALL (and become...da-dah FOLK UPSTAIRS IN THE DRILL)  
     
So check out at lincolnfolk.com.. for the PROGRAMME FOR 2018  MAGGIE HOLLAND (April 2018) and GREG RUSSELL (May 2018), JOHNNY DICKINSON (June 2018), PETE MORTON (September 2018), STEVE TILSTON (November 2018) and JACK RUTTER(December 2018) or go to lincolndrillhall.com and look under the respective months.

You might want to know why we booked these artists…./more about theses artists, so here goes….

WE NEVER BOOK ARTISTS WITHOUT SEEING THEM PERFORM LIVE FIRST….

...we are looking for quality of musicianship and empathy with the audience….however much we love some artists, we have to believe our audience will too or else we know we can't sell them….

…we believe in giving a varied programme of content and artists, mainly showcasing folk music but interspersing that with some blues and roots.  Our programme reflects a balance between returning artists at audience requests and new artists that have not previously performed at Faldingworth.

Another first at Faldingworth, we first heard this trio line-up at last year's Lincoln Folk Day in the Drill Hall…lots of people will have memories of the previous line-up in Last Night's Fun…and some of the dry humour keeps bubbling through from Chris…who is also a very, very accomplished concertina player.

These two are funny apart…and even funnier together and we couldn't resist…and yes there are songs too.

A little bit bluesy, a splash of folk and a shimmer of rock
A fantastic sell out last time....we are expecting another!

SUMMER RECESS

TELL TALE TUSK
Saturday 15 September 2018
Another first at Faldingworth, four charming young ladies first seen at Broadstairs Festival in 2017…and we instantly decided had to be booked - lovely harmonies - lovely variety and a real attack to their light-hearted and winning performance.

ALDEN, PATTERSON & DASHWOOD
Saturday 6 October 2018
Another first at Faldingworth, we saw them perform at Broadstairs.  This trio boasts a fine dobro player and a lovely fiddler.  Their performance does not necessarily grab your attention instantly but as they continue you find yourself enjoying them more and more…..


THE MILE ROSES
Saturday 27 October 2018
First seen by us at Stainsby Festival in 2017, they have lovely vocals and imaginative instrumentals and were much enjoyed by local audiences in a recent village hall tour. 


FLOSSIE MALAVIALLE
Saturday 17 November 2018
Not a first at Faldingworth but a much requested return for this amazing French lady with the fabulous voice and a great pair of lungs….only approximately folk music which bothers no folk audience for whom she performs all over the UK as well as for non-folk audiences.

CHRISTMAS 2018
..we are working on this event!




OUR SUPPORT ARTISTS

mentioning them last of all - they are definitely not least - and we are proud and grateful for the quality and performances of the local artists we invite to open every great Faldingworthlive night!…and not forgetting our comperes Sue Dewsbury, Alan Ritson and Tom Lane.
