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 and front dining areas (away from the concert stage), are 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 little back room. Recently just discovered, a packed little session was had by all in 2019.

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).

Festival Open Mics

Join in the festive fun by performing in the open mics  (you don't have to be a pre-booked performer - just turn up). For 2020, these take place at Belle Vue Hotel (12 midnight to 2am Friday 8th May & Saturday 9th May 2020).
