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.
Please be aware that the Post Code takes you to a residential road where there is an entrance but no parking available. The entrance you should use to the club car park is via Farrow Fields. The W3W address is more accurate.

Our first guest for the start of the season 2021 will be Jim McLean, he is booked to appear on 23rd September.

Prior to our first guest, we will continue with weekly singers & musicians nights. So plenty to look forward to.
Singers nights at the Orpington Folk Club are an opportunity for singers and musicians to get together to perform their songs and or tunes to an audience. Traditional, contemporary and blues music can all be heard on any one night. The Social Club is an excellent space to play in and the bar prices are so reasonable.
