It is with great regret what we have to announce the closure of Seaford Folk Club
from 23 December 2016. Please see the letter from our organiser John Cave below.
You may be aware that I am standing down from organising the Seaford Folk Club,
from Friday 23rd December 2016. Whilst no one has volunteered to organise the club
in it’s current format, Dereck Seed, the other residents and myself are keen to keep
Folk Music alive in Seaford. As a result, Dereck has offered to run a Songs and Tunes
Circle at The British Legion on an initial once a month basis, for a trial period of three
Dereck has canvassed club members and others from outside events, and has
been encouraged by their interest to attend. This has also shown that Thursday night
would be preferred by the majority.
So,The first session will be Thursday 5th January 2017, 8pm, upstairs at the British
Legion, hosted by Dereck. Apologies to anyone that will be unable to attend.
Singers, Musicians and Audience are all welcome to come along and perform or listen.
With adequate support, this could become permanent and possibly even develop into
a fortnightly arrangement in the future.
There will be no further guest evenings, for the foreseeable future.
This will make it much easier to organise, with no monetary collections for either the
guest’s, or club running fees. The room will continue to be provided free by the British Legion
On a personal note, I would like to thank all the residents, in particular, Mary, Liz, Roger,
Dereck, Steve and Diane for their help and support over the last seven years with running
the club. Whilst not always an easy task, and not one I would encourage another to take
on, it has produced many great evenings and fond memories.
