                                            About Us

September 25th 1995 was the inaugural night of the Anchor Folk Club.


On that night we had 70 people attend and as the club was at bursting point, there were people sitting on the stairs up to the function room where the club was held


Since that night, the club has grown into one of the most respected folk clubs in the country.  We are a ‘proper’ folk club. During 2022 we moved to a new venue in Goldsworth Park Woking ‘though we plan to maintain links with our original venue The Blue Anchor pub in Byfleet


We hear all sorts of music but the folk music tradition and all the types of music that sprung from it, are where our heart lies


It is important that we give people (who want to play or sing) a platform to express their music.


To that end, we are predominantly a singers club with an occasional guest night (see ‘What’s On’)


On the singers nights there is a small entry fee and, no surprise really, we have a raffle for vino of distinction… just ask the winners what they think!


Folk music in Surrey is very popular and there are other clubs including ours to satisfy demand, but naturally, we are the Premier of these.  Well, that’s what we think.
