What we do

We're a folk music club based in Newport. We run several ongoing musical groups and a range of monthly and annual events. Our focus is on participation; at most of our events you can sing, play or join in, although you don't have to!

We are a membership-based organisation with an elected committee.

Our aims

The Newport Fiddle and Folk Club aims to:

Beyond the monthly gatherings of the NFFC, the Club has a role to play in the development of young and older musicians through workshops and other planned musical gatherings.

The NFFC aims to develop links with sponsors of the Arts to source funding for professional musicians who will be able to provide musical both leadership and inspiration for developing musicians.

Our policy on acceptable content at events

The Newport Folk and Fiddle Club aims to make all its events inclusive and welcoming to everyone, regardless of gender, age, race, disability or sexual preference. We ask that all performers consider whether their material is likely to cause offence. Offensive content is not welcome at our events.


The Club has an elected Committee that oversees and makes decisions about our activities. All Committee positions are open to election at our AGM in March. All financial members are eligible to stand for election to the Committee.
