The Irvine Folk Club meets fortnightly on Wednesday nights in the Vineburgh Community Centre. It’s a wonderful venue for music having great acoustics and a welcoming and loyal audience. There is no bar but you can bring your own drinks and from the friendly staff in the little community cafe you can buy soft drinks, teas, coffees, snacks and freshly baked scones in the break (the scones are very popular so be sure to get into the queue early!)
The Irvine Folk Club is one of the oldest folk clubs in Scotland with a well earned reputation for great music for over 50 years. 2016 was the 50th year of the Folk Club – which is the longest continuously running folk club in Scotland. The Marymass Folk Festival, which is closely linked to the folk club, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017.
Entry to club nights is £6.00 for members and £8.00 for non-members although membership is not a requirement it’s well worth signing up as club membership runs from January to December at a cost of just £15.
The club starts at 8pm
