altSingarounds & Sessions

Any good folk festival worth its sea salt will have rooms and spaces where people can sing and jam along without the complications of a PA and performers to be booked 'officially'. A place where anybody can join in.

Firstly, Station 'Tophouse' in Church Street and the home to Filey Folk Night (first Wednesdays of every month) , the beer garden with a MARQUEE, perfect for a little session or 3 !

Secondly, at the Belle Vue Hotel, as you walk through the front door, immediately turn right and you will fall down a staircase and then you are in !

Thirdly, Cobblers Arms in Union Street, has a small, cosy bar & little back room + garden. a packed session is had by all !

Imperial Pub in Hope Street will be having occasional sessions throughout the festival weekend !

And last but not least, one of the jewels in Filey Folk Festival's crown, the Foord's Hotel in Queen Street. The "whisky room" as it is now known is at the front of the pub as you walk in from the Queen Street entrance (first room on your right). 

Occasional HOUSE CONCERTS sometimes feature at this venue too. If there are any for 2022 - watch this space nearer the time.
