The Six Bells Folk & Blues Club

Drop in and enjoy the warm, friendly, informal atmosphere at the 6 Bells on our fortnightly folk and blues music evenings. Bring an instrument and if you want to play you will normally get the chance. We welcome the accomplished and the beginner (well - the accomplished had to start somewhere, so why not the 6 Bells?).

The music is acoustic but enhanced by a modest sound desk to give you the all important support of a little amplification and reverb. The club is now run by a co-operative of the regulars who take it in turn to present each evening. Make sure you read our blog for a flavour of what is in store.

What you play or sing is up to you. Evenings vary from classical piano, blues, country, folk, jazz - in fact, just about anything is acceptable, even poets are tolerated here.  If you just want to watch and listen then that's OK too, there is no pressure to perform and as all performers need an audience you will be equally appreciated. IMPORTANT - we don't all sit round in a circle!

The Six Bells is a great East Sussex pub with good food at prices everyone can afford so if you are hungry you can enjoy a meal before the music starts at about 8:30.
