For many years there has been a folk club in Mansfield.

From October 2011 the venue changed location to the Black Bull pub, on Woodhouse Road in Mansfield, and the Club now meets each MONDAY

Every Monday at 8:30 p.m. Doors open 8:00 p.m.

Generally this is either an open singers' night or a guest night, alternating each week, but it does vary. A "Feature" night gives the artist a fuller performance opportunity than is possible on a busy singers night.

There is a break halfway through the evening for a buffet (included in admission fee) and a raffle.

All Singers' Nights and Feature Nights £1 admission
Singersí nights: all singers and musicians welcome.
Feature nights: 2 short spots from featured artist + floor singers.
Guest nights: admission as listed below.

  • November 2009 - slight change. You will find the player above may need an extra click to start to play the video. That's to fix a bug: Youtube was not correctly counting the number of views. (Number of views shown was lower than the actual number of views).
  • Note that there is a delay of a few minutes (or maybe hours) before youtube refeshes the statistics, so you may not see the view count change immediately.
