Thread Name: Why folk clubs are dying
Subject: RE: Why folk clubs are dying
One question before this interesting thread expires - has anyone got any figures for how many clubs there are now comparede with 1year ago? 5years? 10? 15? 20?

Any info about hundreds of clubs in an area once upon a time but where there is now a folk desert?

There's plenty of folk activity in Sussex (English South Coast - the stretch directly below London ) but Surrey (on the South West border of London) is relatively dead as I understand it - with thriving clubs in Byfleet and Staines but not a lot more?

Can EFDSS give us some data? Has anyone done a study for their Uni work?
