Music, Fun, and More

Over the weekend of July 13 and 14th, the Tamworth Folk and Rambling Club, based in Tamworth Staffs sponsored a weekend of folk music. Held at the club venue in Tamworth, the festival was a way of bringing folk music to the community. Ray Clare, a member of the Tamworth Folk Club, said it was only meant to “provide a pleasant weekend of music.”

To advertise their weekend of folk artists and other musicians, the club reached out to “various folk and music clubs and we were featured on a local radio station,” Ray explained. They sold tickets at their club, on the internet and via telephone as well, in order to reach the most people possible.

Ray ordered three kinds of tickets from Eventgroove: the Green Image General Admission Ticket on White 300 gsm Uncoated Smooth advertising the musical act for the 13th, the Red Image General Admission Ticket on White 300 gsm Uncoated Smooth that advertised the featured musician for the 14th, and a Mask General Admission Ticket on White 300 gsm Uncoated Smooth for the whole weekend of music.

Ray said the whole weekend was very well attended and that the special guests that performed on Friday and Saturday evening were the best part. He advises anybody planning large events to “Organise well in advance and delegate members of a committee to deal with various tasks, don’t leave it to the last minute because there will be always something to catch you out.”

The artists that performed during the weekend were The Carrivick Sisters, and Full House. You can check out The Carrivick Sisters website and follow Full House on Facebook.
