Hi, it's Amy, the landlady of the Falcon in Mexborough. We are hoping to start a folk club running on a Wednesday night and are wondering if anyone would be able to help with it? Thanks in advance

We came to the old one that was on a Monday but not many people turned up. Actually, last time we came, we were the only people who turned up. But…nice pub, worth supporting!
All the best Amy

I am certainly interested and will be interested in knowing when it will be starting.
Looking forward to visiting the Falcon again.
Good Luck

Amy is the new landlady Paul. The last club folded as the pub just seemed to go downhill. However I have met with Amy and have agreed to help run a club there if we can gain interest, this is why I passed on the Mudcat web address for them. I have asked around at the Wath Folk Club and I have a little interest from there so I guess in the next few weeks we may get started with something. As you know it is festival season so it's not the best time to start a club.

However we will try, it will be nice to see you both if you can make it but please wait for an official start date before you head out.

Ian

May I suggest that if this is a long term idea that you:
Give the Club a Name / Identity
Create a website, ours has proved to be invaluable
let people know if it's in a separate room, is there an entrance fee, do you intend to book artists for concerts, or even just to join in with the club on the odd occasion, how often the club will meet, run some flyers off the computer and put them on the bar.
Good luck and may it run for a very long time.

Thanks for the kind words John, everyone commeted on your performance as very enjoyable we would love to see you again.

Rhiannon there is no problem with wheelchair access.

Guest, there is a facebook group and a link to it in an earlier post. The name is "The Mexborough Falcon Acoustic".

The club is run weekly on a Wednesday Evening.

All this information is on the Facebook Group.

No answer as yet to other questions until the club has run a few weeks but advice will be given that answers your questions soon.
