Gainsborough is a small market town in north west Lincolnshire (England).
The folk club is small but extremely enthusiastic and friendly, and this site should tell you everything you need to know about it, but if you have any questions, please email, or telephone (01427 838726),

The club now meets at~

The Old Nick Theatre
31, Spring Gardens,
Lincolnshire, DN21 2AY

Directions~ From the mini roundabout at the entrance to Marshalls Yard continue up Spring Gardens towards the station and the theatre is on the corner of Spring Gardens and Cross Street about 75yds from the roundabout.The entrance is just past the corner.

Singers Nights will be in the bar although if numbers dictate or for guest nights we are able to use the auditorium although please be advised that this is not as warm and cosy as the bar area
The access to both areas is up stairs, but they are wide with quite shallow treads.
The bar is well stocked and very reasonably priced and has both cash and card payments, Tea and coffee is also available.
Free parking is available across the road in Marshall's Yard from 7pm onwards.

************************************************************************************** Latest NEWS

Dateline 24th January
The potential problem with the bar for this Friday has been resolved so everything is back to normal

Due to circumstances beyond their control, the Medlars have asked us if they can postpone their visit until 10th March. We have persuaded Roisin Ban to make a return visit on February 10th to complete our programme.

For the time being we will continue to charge 2 for singer's nights and 7 for guest nights.

You may have seen the sad news that the wonderful Les Barker has died. (He was found in his car after attending a local football match and is presumed to have had a heart attack.) It would be great if we could each dredge our repertoires for anything by Les so that we can share our memories of him at our next meeting on 27th January.
