The Travelling Folk


The Travelling Folk (TTF) is a travelling folk club for West Kent and East Sussex. We don't meet regularly in one venue but gather in pre-selected pubs around the area on the first and third Thursdays of each month to enjoy ourselves and to bring folk music to those who may not have had the opportunity of experiencing a live folk session before. |

In view of the ongoing situation with Covid-19, we are holding regular Zoom sessions every Thursday evening. Whilst these lack the atmosphere of our usual pub sessions, they do enable us to keep in practice and in touch with our friends. Any of our regular supporters who wish to participate should contact Liz Randall on who will be happy to email them a link and passcode enabling them to join us.

We are leaving the programme on the website in the hope that we can resume it as soon as it is safe to do so. We will issue an email bulletin as and when this occurs, so you may wish to sign up for this on our website.

We of course regret the effect this will have on our venues and the many others affected, and hope it will not be too long lasting. Stay safe and we hope to see you when we resume.
