About the Club.....

Penzance Folk Club was started in early 2008 by Alan & Linda Collins. Nowadays the club continues to run successfully with elected officers and committee, and the welcome help from a number of members and performers. In 2018, following a change of management at the Admiral Benbow, the club moved premises and now takes place at the Bath Inn, Cornwall Terrace, Penzance.

The club runs alternate Wednesdays from 8.00-11.00pm; most evenings are "Round the Room" sessions where everyone has an opportunity to sing, play a tune or tell a story - there is no obligation to perform and audience are very welcome.
Although the club originated from a background of traditional music, most evenings have a welcome mix of music and song, often including contemporary songs, tunes (some Cornish), American old timey, music hall songs, blues and occasional items of classic pop!

Round the Room sessions are free of charge, but we always run a raffle to raise funds to subsidise our guest nights. Tickets for guest nights are sold through

About five times a year we book guest performers (There are listings of future and past bookings elsewhere on the website). We try to book artists of varying styles, while keeping entry prices affordable. If you have a favourite artist that you think would appeal to club members do let us know. However do bear in mind that the room size restricts the size of a group and even with a full house it would not be economically possible to book the biggest names!
