There has been a Folk Club in Tamworth since the mid 1960's, firstly at the Castle Hotel then the Three Tuns at Fazeley. Since then, like many clubs, they have been located at a number of different venues, with their current home being the Tamworth Tap.. There are some handouts for when the club was at the Gamecock reproduced below.

The club has also run a folk festival under the banner of "Tamworth Folk Moot" for a number of years and some posters for the event can be seen below.


A history of the club can be found on their website, which can be found at:-           How it all started… – Tamworth Folk Club – Folk At The Tap   On the website there are also audio/video recordings , some going back to 1985.
