Thread Name: Llantrisant FC has moved!
Subject: Llantrisant FC has moved!
Llantrisant Folk Club has moved - only 400 yards to Pontyclun Institute Athletic Club in Castan Road CF72 9EH. The Athletic Club has a spacious car park with two spaces for "blue card" badge holders and easy accessibility, a welcoming atmosphere and delicious real ale; turn right at the Club's main entrance, and the next door is the comfortable lounge bar - that's where you will find us!

We made the move in the shadow the all-pervading recession; funds are very tight, and the Arts Council of Wales has tightened up its rules on accessibility. None of us are getting any younger, and the steep and dangerous stairs were an worrying obstacle. Our thoughts go out to our friend, who was an energetic Welsh dancer before he contracted MS; he loves the Club, but he can't negotiate up the steps in a wheelchair. Our move will show to the Arts Council that they can still fund venues with perfect accessibility, providing everyone with differing access issues the right to enjoy folk music.

Take a look at Our website for an exciting programme, which lasts until 2015 - and here's to our relationship with the Athletic Club; may we ever prosper!
