Folk Clubs are a great chance to see concerts in small and intimate venues. Clubs often book a good selection of famous names as well as local and up-and-coming artists, so they provide an opportunity to see those names that you've seen on the festival stages all summer up, close and personal!

As well as featured artists clubs will usually have floor spots where members of the audience can take to the stage for a song or two. Sometimes this is part of an evening with a guest artist, and at other times whole evenings will be given over to this - often known as 'singers' nights or 'open' nights.

Popular nights will usually sell out in advance, so it's worth checking with the organisers whether there are any tickets left.

The Catweazle Club deserves a special mention here - it's not a folk club in the strictest sense of the word, but is frequented by many folk performers and is always worth checking out.

If you're in the South East, your first port of call for all things Folk should be the South East Folk Arts Network. You can also click here for details of folk clubs slightly further afield and here for Folk and Roots listings for the South East.

As well as folk clubs there are lots of Open Mike nights in Oxfordshire.
