Most weeks are “Singers’ Nights” – with plenty of instrumental music as well – but we like to book guests too.
The club’s policy on booking Guests
This year, we're again looking to book a guest every five weeks or so. We've always been a strong singers’ club and the folk who attend like to participate. That's the essence of Kiveton Park. It will not become a 'concert' club where folk sit mute and open-gobbed at the feet of their particular idols. We also intend to keep admission charges as low as possible. That can't be done if we book the latest divas and folk icons. Their fees would be prohibitive and you'd have to re-mortgage the house to pay entrance! We will continue booking guests who provide value for a reasonable fee, engage well with the audience, and do the kind of stuff that folk can relate to and join in with.
Christmas Day - we’re open! Come and sing off those mince pies and turkey.
