Those seeking a floor spots on guest nights should contact us before coming.
Time is very limited on these nights and if time permits we will have floor singers but have to be selective.
We recommend you phone or email us first to avoid disappointment, especially if coming from a long way.
On singers / musicians nights we welcome performers of any ability.

~As I write this we are just into July~
We have recently found out that Dave the manager of the Rosecroft has retired.  At the same time news comes to us that the owners of the Rosecroft have put in for planning permission.  This could mean that the Rosecroft will stay closed, although not a definite done deal yet.  In the meantime we will be looking around for another venue.  If you have any ideas please email us at, we really don’t want this to be the end of Orpington Folk Club.

Watch this website for future developments.
