Presenting live acoustic music in Twickenham most Sundays, usually at Patchworks, The Cabbage Patch pub, at 8pm (doors open 7.45pm)
Coronavirus Update from TwickFolk’ – 15 May 2020
After discussion between the TwickFolk volunteers and in consultation with our hosts at the Cabbage Patch with a heavy heart we’ve taken the decision to suspend TwickFolk events. The safety of our guests, audience members, volunteers and pub staff has to be our priority. The closure applies initially until the end of June (though this date may be reviewed based on government advice with regard to public gatherings), to our concerts, singarounds and showcases. We will reschedule postponed guest bookings at the earliest opportunity where possible, once things have improved.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly. However at a time when convening socially in pubs and clubs is being discouraged, we feel we have a collective responsibility to adhere to recommendations given. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated at a difficult time for everybody.
We send all of our friends, supporters, artists, and all the staff at the Cabbage Patch our very best wishes for continued good health and the strength to sustain this disruption. Moreover self-employed independent artists will inevitably be struggling financially while unable to perform publicly so we’d encourage you to consider purchasing some music through their websites and partaking in any online music activities they may be planning.
In the meantime please join us on Facebook for our Sunday evening song sessions. Look out for our email newsletters, check our website, Facebook, and Twitter for updates, and we look forward to welcoming you back at such time as we get the go-ahead that it’s safe to reopen.
Coming up at TwickFolk:
Another of our popular singaround evenings.
Expect anything from sea shanties to psychedelia, with a mix of original songs, traditional songs and covers of well known and less known songs.
Some performers will take requests on the night.
If you fancy a go at singing in public, then this is the place to start.
If you just want to sit back and listen, that’s also fine. In fact listening, and paying attention to the words and music, is what an evening of folk is all about.
We welcome anyone with a song or a tune to play. Or a poem or a story tell. Expect a warm welcome and a supportive ring of singers and audience.
Non-performers are welcome to come and there is no need to pre-book.… Continue reading. →
