Folk music sessions in Surrey

Traditional pub sessions in and around Godalming

The Godalming sessions are the successors to those that took place in the Ram cider house at Catteshall from the 1970s until the pub closed in the year 2000. Since then, they have taken place in various pubs in the town and the Monday session has long been settled at the Star in Church Street.

The regular sessions are:

The Star, Church Street, Godalming
Every Monday evening from 9.00pm.

The Squirrel, Hurtmore
First Wednesday of the month from 8.30pm.

The sessions are mainly traditional English, Scottish and Irish but we do have some other types of music, especially on Mondays at the Star.

All players, singers and audience are welcome.
