The Folk House is situated at 40a Park Street which is up the alleyway near the two post boxes next to Nomad on the right hand side if you are walking up the hill. The rear entrance is in Culver Street (this is close to the lower pedestrian entrance
to Trenchard Street car park).
The venue is non-smoking throughout, has a large dance hall with a wooden dance floor, a licensed bar and a cafe where the late night jam sessions also take place.
The dance hall does get rather warm despite a couple of air conditioning units - so it'll be just like in Louisiana! Due to the residential location, it is not possible to open windows at the dance hall as the Folk House could lose their license, but we will try to do our best to provide fans and there are balconies and a courtyard where it is possible to go and cool down.
A few words from Liz Haughton - the cafe manager- below to give you an early (and a delicious!) taster!
