The Club Room
The club meets on Monday nights at Conwy Comrades Sport and Social Club's function room.
The stage is small, sufficient size for 4-5 (multi) instrumentalists and a singer
The maximum capacity is 140 approx people seated with room for another 40 standing.
In almost all cases we make the initial approach to the artists who end up headlining our events.
The artists we book are likely to be already known to us through festival appearances, media coverage etc.
If you aren't in that category it's unlikely we would be able to offer a headline spot.
If we haven't heard of you, it is unlikely that our audience have, and we have a reputation to maintain.
We occasionally book support spots for up-and-coming artists who we believe have genuine promise.
These are usually 25 minute spots but we only offer them on guest nights, and are 'expenses only' bookings, takings permitting.
If we don't have a booked support artist we generally have two or three floor spots (Singers 'From the Floor') available.
We are happy to take inquiries for these also.
Floor spots are unpaid but performers on guest nights get free entry discount and an opportunity to showcase themselves for the future.
If you are a non-UK or non-EU resident you will also need to obtain a Certificate of Sponsorship (work-permit) to play live in the UK.
We can't do this on your behalf. You will need to submit details of your proposed sponsor/agent.

If we have asked you to look at this web page for our booking criteria and you are writing back to us, please consider the following:
- Live performances on YouTube will sell you to us best - not publicity/studio/home based performances.
- Festivals and live recordings on YouTube can show how the artist interacts with the audience, and how the audience responds to the artist after a song.
- Slick professionally produced YouTube videos with no audience give no clue of the artist's rapport - which is a big part of what a Folk Club is about.
- A link to your web site, Facebook page, Twitter account, myspace, and any other social media will help us to form an opinion of your suitability for our club.
- If you haven't heard from us within 4 weeks, then assume the worst, we do try to respond to everybody who follows these guidelines.
Conwy Folk Club is staffed and run entirely by gifted volunteers, most of whom are musicians themselves.
