Nominated  for  Folk Club of the Year in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2006/2007/2008
Please Note Change of circumstances

The Parkgate Folk Club has had to move out of the Boathouse (please see below) to a temporary venue which we have booked until the end of October. This was the date the Boathouse said they would have come to a decision as to it’s future availability, however we have now been told that the decision has been deferred until January. It has therefore been decided to put club bookings on hold after the Vin Garbutt night and await the Boathouse decision.

In the meantime here are some dates for your Folk diary

Re The Boathouse Upgrade
The Fire Service has decided that the Boathouse upstairs room has been deemed a fire risk and therefore cannot be used until suitable reparations have been made. We are therefore moving to another venue until hopefully we will be able to return.
It is the
Parkgate & Neston  URC Community Hall,
Moorside Lane (off Parkgate Road), Neston, CH64 6UZ
Unfortunately this venue has no drinks licence so please Bring Your Own.
We can provide Tea and Coffee
