Skipton Folk Unplugged

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Are there are any tickets left for the concert tomorrow? We are travelling a long way so don't want to turn up on spec.

A. This club rarely does tickets in advance. Unless explicity specified otherwise, it is always a policy of turn up and pay on the night. If you are travelling a long way we suggest arriving early in case it is a busy night. Although we make every effort to maintain the information on this website this cannot be guaranteed, so if in any doubt you are strongly advised to check yourself.

Q. Can I request a gig booking?

A. This is down to the decision of the club organisers. Generally this club does not offer paid guest spots to acts that they have not seen first. The best thing is to come along and play at any "Singers night" first (not paid) and if they think you may be suitable for a booking, and if there is a date available, they may offer a booking.

Q. How much will it cost?

A. Entry for a Singers night is currently 1 per person. Prices on Guest nights vary, but are usually between 5 and 7 per person.

Q. Can I come along to sing/play?

A. Yes, if you want to sing, play or recite poetry (not paid) the best thing is to come along to a singers night and have a word with the MC (compere) on the night. Whilst a spot is not guaranteed, they do try to get everyone on if possible.

Q. What is a Singers night?

A. This is a night when there is no booked guest, and the entertainment is provided by (unpaid) floor singers. You don't have to sing of course, you can just come along to listen.
