There are only a couple of Trad Arts Team events in August so we can all escape to the festivals, but we will be back with a full programme in September. During July we have our full range of events and sessions. If you fancy an enjoyable – and cheap – night out, you might find that one of our sessions is just the thing – and who knows you might want to jump up and do a song or a story.

To find out about other events all over the Midlands, read our Folk Monthly magazine. This costs £1 and is sold at various folk clubs and music shops in the region, or you can have it delivered through your letter box every month – there’s an annual subscription form at
